2009-10 season

After having his now customary offseason knee surgery, DiPietro misses the first 27 games of the season but uses the time off to lose some weight and adopt a new standup style, the better to preserve his legs. Back between the pipes against Dallas on Jan. 9, the starcrossed netminder absorbs a 4-3 loss but holds up until March 6 when swelling in his right knee shelves him for the final 12 games of the season. He finishes the campaign with a 2-5-0 record in eight appearances.
