According to a report out of Germany, Rick DiPietro is being held out of action with SC Riessersee due to a groin injury.

Update: DiPietro is now denying the report, according to the New York Post’s Brett Cyrgalis

DiPietro’s injury history is well known. The Islanders’ goalie with the contract that runs through 2020-21 missed the last 58 games of the 2011-12 regular season with, according to the club, “first with a groin strain and then with a sports hernia and knee swelling.”

In August, the Isles removed the 31-year-old from injured reserve.

    He probably just needs to retire. I don’t think he’s capable of making it through a whole season with out issues.

    A goalie with continual groin problems is like a baseball pitcher with continual shoulder problems, frustration all around, for the team, the fans, and of course for the player.

    Just take him out the back and shot him

    He’s to easy a target for jokes, so I’m gonna give him a pass on the snark. Dude needs to lay off on whatever is causing this though. Maybe see an acupuncturist,

    I know this is tough on Rick, but I do believe the time has come for him to hang the skates up.

    Sign him to another 20,000 light years !

    Bury him in Bridgeport and hire an extra bus for his paycheck.

    I wouldn’t want to be his insurence company, as they have paid him more often then the Ilses have.
