Dalpe Named to AHL All-Rookie Team
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The American Hockey League announced today that Checkers forward Zac Dalpe has been named to the 2010-11 AHL All-Rookie Team.
Dalpe has scored 21 goals and 30 assists in 56 games this season and his 51 points rank third among AHL rookies.

The Paris, Ontario native began the season with the Carolina Hurricanes and has played in 15 NHL games over three separate stints this season. He scored his first career NHL goal on Jan. 1 against future Hall of Fame goaltender Martin Brodeur and his New Jersey Devils.
A former second-round draft pick of Carolina in 2008, Dalpe turned pro following two seasons with Ohio State. As a Buckeye, the native of Paris, Ont. registered 70 points (34g, 36a) in 76 collegiate games and led his team with 45 points during the 2009-10 season.
