 UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) -Goaltender Rick DiPietro will miss the rest of the New York Islanders season because of hip surgery. The operation is Wednesday in Vail, Colo.
DiPietro is finishing the second season of a landmark 15-year contract. This marks the second straight year that the team's 26-year-old goalie needs hip surgery. The left one was operated on after last season's playoffs. Now the right one needs repair.
DiPietro was injured during the All-Star skills competition in January and has played through the pain since.
