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

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
