DiPietro out indefinitely with concussion @NHLdotcom
The New York Islanders announced Friday that goaltender Rick DiPietro will be out indefinitely due to a concussion.

DiPietro suffered the injury Wednesday when he was hit in the mask by a puck during practice.

DiPietro did not play in any of the Islanders' first three games.

The oft-injured netminder has played just 39 games the last three seasons due to an assortment of injuries. In 26 games last season, he went 8-14-4 with a 3.44 goals-against average and .886 save percentage.

DiPietro, who turned 30 last month, is in his 11th season. In 307 games, he has 127 wins, a 2.84 GAA and .903 save percentage.
