Islanders place Rick DiPietro on waivers

The Islanders officially placed goalie Rick DiPietro on waivers Friday.

If he clears waivers, the Islanders will send DiPietro to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the American Hockey League and likely call up goalie Kevin Poulin.

DiPietro, the first overall pick in the 2000 NHL Draft, has been hampered by multiple injuries including a groin strain, sports hernia and a knee injury -- after signing a 15-year, $67.5 million contract extension in 2006. The 31-year-old has not played a full-time since the 2007-08 season

He saw his last NHL action in eight games last season, finishing 3-2-3 with a 3.73 goals-against average and a .875 save percentage.
