Islanders Rick Dipietro Injury Update

It's pretty much still up in the air until Dipietro actually practices, which could be as early as today. If all goes well during his first skate since last Friday head coach Scott Gordon said "Hopefully, he'll be on the ice for many consecutive days."

With four consecutive days off coming up next week, I would assume Dipietro will be held out of the starting position until October 23rd. However that's just me being safe, you know considering the 13-years left on his contact and the problems he's had.
