2008-09 season

After having surgery on his left knee during the summer, DiPietro plays one period during the Isles' first five games before needing an arthroscopic procedure on Nov. 1 that sidelines him for 27 games. His return is brief -- just long enough to realize that knee swelling has left him unable to play -- and he sits out the final 41 games of the season, having made a grand total of five appearances.
