As part of his rehab from a lower-body injury, Zac Dalpe was with the Checkers in a three-games-in-three-nights swing through two time zones this past weekend.  From the looks of things, he made it through the crucible with no problem, despite failing to record a point in the two games he played with Charlotte.

His reward came this afternoon, when the Hurricanes recalled Dalpe from Charlotte, sending winger Drayson Bowman down to the Checkers.  Dalpe will meet the Canes in New Jersey, where they will face the Devils tomorrow night.

During his two-game stint with the Canes, Bowman tallied no points and averaged just under seven minutes of ice time in the weekend losses to the Capitals and Stars.

The full release from the team follows the jump.

 

‘CANES RECALL ZAC DALPE FROM CHARLOTTE

Drayson Bowman reassigned to Carolina’s AHL affiliate

 

RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has recalled forward Zac Dalpe from the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League (AHL). Rutherford also announced that forward Drayson Bowman has been reassigned to Charlotte.

 

Dalpe, 22, was assigned to Charlotte on Nov. 2, and played in two games during the weekend for the Checkers. The Paris, Ont., native was assigned to Charlotte after he missed seven Hurricanes games recovering from a lower-body injury sustained on Oct. 14 at Buffalo. Dalpe (6’1", 195 lbs.) has played in five NHL games this season without registering a point. Carolina drafted Dalpe in the second round, 45th overall, in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.
