Forward Zac Dalpe has been sidelined with a lower-body injury since the Canes' Oct. 14 game against the Buffalo Sabres. Dalpe has returned to practice and Canes coach Paul Maurice said Tuesday he was close to being back in full-contact work.

Dalpe is a young guy with 20 career games under his belt, and 4 points, so let's wait and see how he performs first.

Forward Zac Dalpe, out since Oct. 14 with a lower-body injury, was out of the yellow, non-contact jersey and in a white jersey, but Canes coach Paul Maurice said he is not ready to rejoin the lineup.

Dalpe has been skating for a few days now, which is an encouraging sign for the team. The Canes top prospect was held pointless over his first five games this year.

"I'm not taking anything for granted," the forward said. "I want to be here all 82 (games). I guess the season is 190 days, so I've got a 190 days of work ahead of me."

Dalpe will start the season on the fourth line. The team's top prospect scored 23 goals and 57 points through 61 games, earning 15 games with the big club. He figures to stick with the team all season which should produce a decent rookie year.

Zac Dalpe isn't going to try and deny it. Playing right wing on a line with Eric Staal and Alexei Ponikarovsky, he said, is pretty cool.

Dalpe played well on the third line, meshing with Jiri Tlusty and Brandon Sutter. The team's top prospect scored 23 goals and 57 points through 61 games, earning 15 games with the big club. He figures to stick with the team all season which should produce a decent rookie year.
