Richard W. DiPietro Jr. is an American former professional ice hockey goaltender and current co-host of 's "Humpty & Canty show" with Chris Canty and Dave Rothenberg. On June 24, 2000, DiPietro became the first of two goaltenders in history selected first overall in an NHL Entry Draft when he was chosen by the New York Islanders. The second being Marc-André Fleury three years later. In 2006, the team signed him to a groundbreaking 15-year, $67.5 million contract, but a string of injuries beginning in 2008, which limited him to 50 NHL appearances over the next five seasons, led to a contract buyout on July 2, 2013, with eight years remaining on his contract. DiPietro retired after being released by the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League (AHL) on November 26, 2013, with whom he had signed a tryout contract on October 25. Multiple hockey writers consider him to be one of the biggest draft busts in NHL history. As a result of his contract buyout, the Islanders will continue to pay DiPietro $1.5 million until the end of the 2028–29 season, leading to DiPietro being referred to as the "Bobby Bonilla of hockey".
