Vancouver Canucks assign Zac Dalpe to AHL's Utica Comets for conditioning

VANCOUVER - The Vancouver Canucks sent centre Zac Dalpe to their minor-league affiliate on Saturday for a conditioning assignment.

Dalpe has appeared in six games for the Canucks this season. This will be his first stint with the American Hockey League's Utica Comets.

Vancouver acquired the six-foot-one, 195-pounder alongside Jeremy Welsh from the Carolina Hurricanes on Sept. 28 in exchange for Kellan Tochkin and the fourth round pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
