The Hurricanes have claimed Klas Dahlbeck off of waivers from the Coyotes.
Dahlbeck, 25, had eight points (2G / 6A) in 71 games with the Coyotes last year. Dahlbeck has good size (6’3” / 207 lbs.), but doesn’t play an overly physical brand of hockey and is not very offensive either. Dahlbeck has 12 points (3G / 9A) in 94 career NHL games with Chicago and Arizona.
The Coyotes have signed Klas Dahlbeck to a one-year deal worth $750K.
Dahlbeck, 24, spent the majority of 2015-16 with the Coyotes, where he collected eight points (2G / 6A) in 71 games. The former third round pick (79th overall in 2011) has just 12 career points (3G / 9A) in 94 games between Arizona and Chicago.
Dahlbeck will return to the Coyotes lineup on Thursday.
Dahlbeck did not play in the last two games, but he will be in the lineup tonight vs. the Sharks. With Dahlbeck back in, Kevin Connauton will be a healthy scratch. Dahlbeck has just five points (2G / 3A) in 43 games this season.
The Coyotes have recalled Klas Dahlbeck and a 2015 first round pick from the Blackhawks for Antoine Vermette.
Dahlbeck, 23, is a big-body at 6-foot-2, 194 lbs. but is not overly physical. The 2011 third round pick (79th overall) had one goal in four games with Chicago this season and 10 points (4G / 6A) in 49 games with Rockford (AHL).
The Blackhawks have sent Klas Dahlbeck back to Rockford (AHL).
Dahlbeck, 23, had one goal in four games with the Blackhawks. He heads back to the AHL where he has six points (2G / 4A) in 22 games. The addition of Tim Erixon likely squeezed Dahlbeck backed to the minors.
Dahlbeck could make his NHL debut on Saturday vs. Nashville.
Dahlbeck, 23, was the 79th overall pick in 2011. After spending three years in Sweden, he is now in his third full year in North America.
