Rick DiPietro Activated Off IR

Via NewYorkIslanders.com:

The New York Islanders announced today that goaltender Rick DiPietro has been removed from injured reserve.

DiPietro, 30, had been sidelined since Dec. 3, 2011, first with a groin strain and then with a sports hernia and knee swelling. The Winthrop, MA, native appeared in eight games last season, posting a 3-2-3 record.

As you were.
