Zac Dalpe Autograph Card

In just 119 NHL games spread over six seasons with four different NHL teams, former second-rounder (45th overall in 2008) Zac Dalpe might never develop into the point-per-game player the Carolina Hurricanes thought he would be, but he has produced at a decent clip in the AHL at times and may eventually become the type of grinder one wants on their team to remind their prospects that not everything gets handed to them if they don't put the necessary effort into it.

He scored the Minnesota Wild's lone goal in Niklas Backstrom's final NHL game, as the Wild's former starting goalie finished his career with a 2-1 win over his old teammates and fans, suiting up for the Calgary Flames for the fourth time.

Dalpe's currently a free agent, as has been the case for three straight summers now; my guess is he'll sign another two-way deal with Minnesota.

Here he is wearing the Canes' former red (home) uniform on card #SS-ZD from Upper Deck's 2013-14 Series 1 collection and Signature Sensations sub-set:
It features an on-sticker blue-sharpied autograph that incorporates his jersey number (22).
