The Blue Jackets wanted to add some firepower for their playoff run and they're turning to a former Buckeye to do it, recalling forward Zac Dalpe from the Cleveland Monsters.

Dalpe played at Ohio State for two seasons from 2008-10, registering 34 goals and 36 assists for 70 points in 76 games. He was originally selected by the Carolina Hurricanes in the second round of the 2008 NHL Draft.

Playing with the Cleveland Monsters, Dalpe led the team in goals (33), points (55) and power play goals (10) this season. In his lone appearance with the Jackets this year, he posted one assist.

Dalpe joins fellow Buckeye Ryan Dzingel on the Jackets roster, who played at Ohio State from 2011-14.

The pair will help the Jackets try to cap off the first-round upset of the Presidents' Trophy winning Tampa Bay Lightning. Columbus currently has a 3-0 advantage in the series and will look to complete the sweep on Tuesday.
