Isles declare DiPietro out with concussion
Moments ago, the Isles announced that Rick DiPietro did indeed suffer a concussion when he was injured in practice by a Brian Rolston shot.
According to the team, there is no timetable for his return.
Unlike last season, the Isles do not play a single set of back-to-backs until Thanksgiving weekend so Al Montoya could be very busy.
The Isles are currently carrying 22 players on the active roster.
Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since 1982. Visit my blog: NYISkinny.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
