NHL roundup: Islanders dump former BU goalie DiPietro

The New York Islanders waived goaltender Rick DiPietro on Friday, ending one of the oddest — and most expensive — sagas possibly in league history.

The Islanders put DiPietro on waivers with the intent of sending him to their AHL team in Bridgeport, Conn. The Islanders were expected to recall Kevin Poulin once DiPietro clears waivers or is claimed by another team so that he would back up Evgeni Nabokov.
