      Wild's Zac Dalpe: Expected to be sidelined five months

      Dalpe underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left hip Thursday, and has been a recovery timetable of five months. Dalpe has missed all but one game this season for AHL Iowa with what was initially believed to be a groin injury. When the ailment lingered, the team's training staff likely investigated further, and ultimately discovered the 26-year-old forward would require surgery to address the issue. Minnesota's already shallow depth at center will now be stretched even thinner during Zalpe's absence. Given his recovery timetable, Dalpe likely won't be available until early April.

      Wild's Zac Dalpe: Sidelined with groin injury

      Dalpe has missed all but one game this season for Iowa of the AHL due to a groin injury, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Dalpe would be a potential candidate to be called up to the NHL if healthy due to injuries to Tyler Graovac and Justin Fontaine. However, it doesn't sound like he'll be healthy enough to be called up in the near term.

    • Scores two goals for AHL Iowa

      News: Zac Dalpe scored two goals in AHL Iowa's preseason game Saturday, but could be recalled to the NHL this week if the Wild need a center, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
      Analysis: Zac Dalpe would likely just be a short-term callup if Erik Haula (groin) isn't ready to play. Dalpe will probably spend all his time at AHL Iowa this season unless several injuries strike the Wild forwards.
    • Wild Sign Free Agent Dalpe To One-Year Deal

      News: Zac Dalpe signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Wild on Wednesday.
      Analysis: Zac Dalpe saw the ice in 21 games last season for the league-worst Sabres, but he'll have a much more difficult time cracking the lineup with Minnesota. Expect him to get cut in training camp and spent most of his campaign at AHL Iowa.
    • Sabres' Dalpe To Enter Free Agency

      News: Zac Dalpe's rights will not be retained by the Sabres, reports The Buffalo News.
      Analysis: Signed to a one-year deal last summer, Zac Dalpe spent most of the season with AHL Rochester, scoring 28 points in 44 games and scoring another three points in 21 games with the Sabres. The former second-round pick will have to look elsewhere for a new home, however, as the Sabres look to replenish their depth with other players. Dalpe has played in 117 career games in the NHL but with just 20 career points he's a likely candidate to further his career in Europe.
    • Sabres' Dalpe Scores, Extends Streak

      News: Zac Dalpe scored his first of the season in a 4-3 win over Toronto on Wednesday.
      Analysis: Despite playing mostly on the team's bottom two lines, Zac Dalpe managed to score his first of the season and extend his point streak to three games. It's unlikely Dalpe will be able to extend his points streak for much longer with tough games against the Blackhawks and Islanders coming up.
    • Sabres' Dalpe Rejoins Team

      News: Zac Dalpe (personal) is likely available to play Saturday against the Capitals, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
      Analysis: The Sabres' decision to send Mikhail Grigorenko back to AHL Rochester on Saturday suggests Zac Dalpe is back with the team after he spent the last two days attending to a personal matter. Expect him to occupy a bottom-six role in his return to the lineup.
    • Sabres' Dalpe Won't Play Friday

      News: Zac Dalpe (personal) will not play Friday against the Senators.
      Analysis: Zac Dalpe, who left the team Thursday to tend to a family matter, didn't rejoin the Sabres for their morning skate Friday, so he'll head to the press box if he arrives in time for the game. He hasn't been ruled out from returning to the lineup Saturday against the Capitals. His absence will pave the way for Mikhail Grigorenko, who will play center on the second line.
    • Sabres' Dalpe Questionable For Friday

      News: Zac Dalpe (personal) is questionable to play Friday against the Senators, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
      Analysis: Zac Dalpe wasn't present at Thursday's practice, as he left the team to attend to a family matter. He's expected to return to the Sabres in the near future, but it remains unclear if he'll be able to resolve the personal situation before Friday's match. Tim Schaller was moved to the fourth line to Dalpe's spot while Johan Larsson and Mikhail Grigorenko will center the third and second lines, respectively.
    • Dalpe Recalled By Sabres

      News: The Sabres recalled Zac Dalpe from AHL Rochester on Thursday, the team's official site reports.
      Analysis: Zac Dalpe, who has notched a team-high 16 goals and 28 points overall in 44 games with Rochester to date, was summoned along with Phil Varone to bolster the Sabres' depth up front. The 25-year-old will play on Varone's right wing with Johan Larsson on the opposite side on the team's third line. The absence of the Sabres' top scorers means the team will need its call-ups to provide some offensive punch. However, Dalpe has achieved little success at the NHL level, and shouldn't be counted on to offer much production during his stint with the parent club.
