The Buffalo Sabres have signed forward Zac Dalpe to a one-year contract.

The Sabres have not yet disclosed whether it's a one-year or two-year deal. As James O'Brien points out at, it makes a difference, the one- or two-way detail could be important because the general feeling is that Dalpe isn’t exactly a shoo-in for a roster spot. The Olean Times Herald’s Bill Hoppe believes that the 24-year-old will fight for a fourth-line forward spot.

Zac Dalpe will skate on Vancouver's top line again Monday night.

He will stay with Henrik and Daniel Sedin after he scored in the team's 2-1 win over St. Louis on Friday. "It could be a short leash, but at the same time I am going to try and take advantage of it," Dalpe said. "I'm not going to change up my game and think I am a super-skilled guy now that I play with the Sedins. I am going to do what I do, shoot the puck, and hopefully play well with them." He has two goals and two assists in 29 games this season.

Zac Dalpe scored a goal in Vancouver's 2-1 win over St. Louis Friday evening.

Dalpe played on the first line with Daniel and Henrik Sedin and scored his second goal of the season. If Dalpe continues to play on the first unit he could be a nice fantasy option in deeper leagues. The Canucks will play again on Sunday so we will have to see if he stays with the Sedins. Mike Santorelli scored the other goal for the Canucks.
