The Columbus Blue Jackets have claimed center Zac Dalpe from the Minnesota Wild
In 128 career NHL games with Carolina, Vancouver, Buffalo, and Minnesota, the 27 year old has scored 12 goals and 12 assists.
He was an All-American at Ohio State, playing there in the 2008-09 and 2009-10 seasons.
This seasons he was 1/2/3 in 9 games with Minnesota and 2/0/2 in 12 games for their AHL affiliate in Iowa.
Stay tuned, as we’ll update with any information from the team as to Dalpe’s role. He would be nothing more than fourth line forward, or a warm body on hand for emergency purposes.

Dalpe's waiver "clock" had not expired with #mnwild, but they were attempting to reset it. #CBJ claim, can send directly to minors.— Aaron Portzline (@Aportzline) February 27, 2017
So this move may be for the benefit of the Monsters
