News: The Islanders Have Bought Out Rick DiPietro’s Contract

The Islanders have announced that they have used one of their two compliance buyouts to buy out the rest of Rick DiPietro’s contract.

GM Garth Snow said of the move “It was an extremely tough decision to use the compliance buyout on Rick’s contract. His drive to win games and compete at the highest level for the New York Islanders was never questioned. With Rick back at 100% health, we wish him nothing but the best as he continues to pursue his career.”
