Dalpe was reassigned to AHL Cleveland on Wednesday. Dalpe figures to link up with the Monsters for the Calder Cup Playoffs, though he could find himself back with the Jackets as an emergency depth option once the second-round begins. Even if the center is with Columbus, he is unlikely to see any ice time barring a run of injuries.
Dalpe was recalled from AHL Cleveland on Monday. Dalpe had a great season in the AHL, racking up 55 points in 55 games for the Cleveland. He played one game in the NHL this season, collecting an assist. With no injuries to the forward group and a 3-0 series lead, Dalpe likely won't see the ice anytime soon.
Dalpe signed a two-year, two-way contract extension with Columbus on Wednesday. Dalpe has been up and down between both the AHL and NHL, registering just one point in 28 games this campaign with the big club. With the Blue Jackets adding forwards Matt Duchene and Ryan Dzingel at the trade deadline, most of Dalpe's time will likely be spent in AHL Cleveland this season.
The Blue Jackets recalled Dalpe from AHL Cleveland on Wednesday. Josh Anderson is considered day-to-day with an upper-body injury, so Dalpe will serve as insurance against the Kings on Thursday. The 29-year-old has racked up 13 goals and 25 points in 24 AHL appearances this season.
Dalpe will return to AHL Cleveland after being reassigned Friday. Dalpe's demotion is a good indication that Artemi Panarin (illness) is healthy and ready to go for Saturday's matchup with Carolina. The 28-year-old Dalpe did snag an assist versus the Panthers on Thursday, his first point of the 2018-19 campaign. Barring any significant injuries to guys ahead of him, the center figures to spend the remainder of the year in the minors.
