The New York Islanders facebook page is reporting that goalie Rick DiPietro will start against the Stars tonight at American Airlines Center. It's the first start DiPietro has made since Jan. 2, 2009. Injuries have plagued DiPietro. He's had surgeries on both hips and both knees the last two years.
DiPietro had 63 starts in 2007-08 and had a 2.82 GAA and .902 save percentage. Can he put up those types of numbers now? ESPN.com contibutor Tim Kavanagh talks
about that in a fantasy column here.
