Newsday: Greg Logan reports goaltender Rick DiPietro had minor knee (meniscus) surgery on Tuesday. The article notes the latest procedure is not expected to interfere with the goaltender's rehabilitation from his hip surgery and he is expected to be a hundred percent before the opening of training camp but the club took a pro-active approach because the situation was bothering the goaltender.
Mr Logan speculates the surgery is on the same left knee he sprained during warm-ups before a home game against Toronto on Dec. 26.
NYI Fan Central Comments:
I don't know folks, article says DiPietro was on a radio program today and it also says the surgery took place today with the doctor's comments.
That radio program does not provide updates quickly. I'm sure we will get an Islander website release at some point.
Fair to speculate this is why Garth Snow again brought up Dubielewicz early season conditioning?
Feels like regular season to me with all the blogging today. Just wish it was for some good news.
