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.
