Blue Jackets announce roster moves involving Dalpe, Korpisalo, Kukan and Kivlenieks





COLUMBUS, OHIO — The Columbus Blue Jackets have recalled forward Zac Dalpe, goaltender Joonas Korpisalo and defenseman Dean Kukan from the Cleveland Monsters, Columbus’ American Hockey League affiliate, and assigned goaltender Matiss Kivlenieks to the AHL team, club General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen announced today.


Dalpe, 28, made his Blue Jackets debut on Oct. 6 vs. the New York Islanders and has recorded 13 penalty minutes in 10 games this season.  He has also tallied three goals and seven assists for 10 points with 21 penalty minutes and an “even” plus/minus rating in 14 games with Cleveland, including points in five-straight games played from Dec.23-Jan. 6 (3-3-6).  He has posted 12-12-24 and 36 penalty minutes in 138 career NHL games with the Blue Jackets, Minnesota Wild, Buffalo Sabres, Vancouver Canucks and Carolina Hurricanes since making his NHL debut in 2010-11.  The Paris, Ontario native has added 100-100-200, 119 penalty minutes and is +8 in 284 career AHL games with the Monsters, Iowa Wild, Rochester Americans, Utica Comets, Charlotte Checkers and Albany River Rats.  Claimed off waivers by Columbus from Minnesota on Feb. 27, 2017, Dalpe was originally Carolina’s second round pick, 45th overall, in the 2008 NHL Draft.


Korpisalo, 23, has gone 4-4-0 with a 3.10 goals-against average and .904 save percentage in nine contests this season and is 27-20-5 with a 2.75 goals-against average, .913 save percentage and a shutout in 54 career NHL games with the Blue Jackets.  He has compiled a 1-1-1 record with a 2.29 goals-against average and .927 save percentage in three contests with Cleveland this season and is 16-17-6 with a 2.55 goals-against average, .909 save percentage and two shutouts in 40 career AHL games with the Monsters.  The native of Pori, Finland was selected by Columbus in the third round, 62nd overall, in the 2012 NHL Draft.


Kukan, 24, who was selected on Thursday to play in his first AHL All-Star Classic on January 28-29 in Utica, New York, has collected 1-12-13 and 18 penalty minutes in 28 games with the Monsters this season.  He has recorded 8-47-55 and 69 penalty minutes in 133 career AHL games with the Monsters since 2015-16 when he helped the club capture the Calder Cup championship.  A native of Volketswil, Switzerland, he was signed by the Blue Jackets as a free agent in June 2015.  He has a +9 plus/minus rating in eight career NHL games, all of which came during the 2015-16 campaign.


Kivlenieks, 21, has gone 5-9-2 with a 3.34 GAA and .880 SV% in 18 games with the Monsters in his first professional season.  In 2016-17, he captured the USHL’s Player and Goaltender of the Year awards after going 36-7-6 with a 1.85 GAA and .932 SV% in 49 games to help Sioux City capture the Anderson Cup (regular season champions), leading the league in wins, GAA, SV% and shutouts (five, tied).  The Riga, Latvia native was signed by Columbus to a three-year, entry level contract on May 25, 2017.

The Blue Jackets return to action tonight when they host the Florida Panthers.  Game time from Nationwide Arena is 5 p.m. ET. Live coverage on FOX Sports Ohio begins with the Blue Jackets Live pre-game show starting at 4:30 p.m.  All Blue Jackets games televised on FOX Sports Ohio will also be streamed live via FOX Sports GO.  The game may also be heard on the Eldorado Scioto Downs Blue Jackets Radio Network, including CD102.5 FM in Columbus and online at
