Rick DiPietro was the first overall selection by the New York Islanders in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft. DiPietro signed a groundbreaking 15-year contract in 2006, after which he suffered a string of injuries from 2008 until he was subsequently bought-out by the Islanders on July 2, 2013, and retired in 2013 after he was released from his contract by the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League on November 26, 2013. DiPietro is currently a NY sports talk show host on ESPN 98.7 FM. He co-hosts the "Hahn & Humpty show" with Alan Hahn.
