Islanders’ DiPietro to Have Hernia Surgery, Will Miss 10 Weeks

Jan. 14 (Bloomberg) -- New York Islanders goaltender Rick DiPietro will undergo hernia surgery that will sideline him 10 weeks, the National Hockey League team said in a statement.

DiPietro, 30, has been out since Dec. 3, first with a groin strain and then with the hernia and knee swelling. The Islanders didn’t say when the surgery would be performed.

DiPietro, the top pick in the 2000 NHL Draft, has a 3-2-3 record with a 3.73 goals-against average in 8 games this season.
