On 28 February 2015, Dahlbeck was traded, along with Chicago's first round draft pick in 2015, to the Arizona Coyotes in exchange for Antoine Vermette.[4]

On the eve of the 2016–17 season, Dahlbeck's tenure with the Coyotes came to a close as he was claimed off waivers by the Carolina Hurricanes on 11 October 2016.[5]
