LOGAN: DiPIETRO RECENTLY SEEN ON CRUTCHESNo explanation immediately available from the NYI

12:40 am – Greg Logan writes that “Rick DiPietro recently was seen on crutches at the physical therapy center where the Islanders do their rehabilitation.” Over the last few days the PB inbox has received three emails from readers reporting various sightings of the goalie on crutches, but I could not verify.

 

DiPietro was not part of the post-game Jersey presentation with fans tonight, while some injured players were. He has not been seen around the team at their practices in recent weeks. On March 25 the team released a statement saying “Rick is progressing well and is on schedule to report to training camp.” Scott Gordon told me tonight after the game (and before Greg’s report), “Rick fully expects to be on the ice sometime in mid-summer and ready to go.” The team had no comment for Logan tonight and has not announced that DiPietro has had any surgery. Comments.

It seems strange that he didn't end his career with the Devils, but you go where you are needed. Good Luck. By the way I always thought Patrick Roy was the greatest and Richter was the gutsiest.

Just for the rest of this season. After all, the Blues are still paying him. He will be working with the Devils after the season ends.

Awesome career you had Broduer over the years watching you in the Tri-State area of all hockey Devils, Rangers,and Islanders, but Brodeur should sign a 1 day contract to retire as a Devil

I figured he'd be the Devils next legit head coach.
