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

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
