Islanders’ DiPietro pulled in appearance with AHL’s Sound Tigers

Things seem to be going from bad to worse for Rick DiPietro.

On Friday, DiPietro, making his first appearance for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, allowed five goals on just 12 shots in the first period and was on the bench to start the second period.

Bridgeport lost the game 7-3 to the Connecticut Whale.

The past few weeks have seen DiPietro waved by the New York Islanders and eventually sent to Bridgeport of the American Hockey League. He also commented about contemplating suicide, although he later tried to clarify that his comments were facetious.

The Islanders released a statement earlier this week about the severity of DiPietro’s suicide remarks.

DiPietro still has eight years left on a 15-year contract worth $67.5 million with the New York Islanders. His NHL career has been severely stalled due to injuries and inconsistent play.
