COUNTDOWN TO NYI CAMP: The Goalies

A look at the goaltenders participating at the Islanders' 2007 Training Camp

The goaltending positions on Long Island are solidified, but that is certainly not the case for Bridgeport as four young netminders vie for two spots.

Below is a sneak peek of the six goaltenders set to make their way to Moncton, New Brunswick for the Islanders' 2007 Training Camp, which begins this Friday.


Rick DiPietro
Born Sep. 19, 1981 -- Winthrop, MA
Height: 5'11"
Weight: 190
Catches: Right

The Islanders' franchise goaltender returns to training camp in perfect health following a career year. DiPietro helped lead the Islanders to the postseason, while posting a career-high and tying a franchise record with 32 wins on the season. DiPietro became the first Islander to record 30 wins in two seasons. His .919 SV% ranked sixth in the NHL and his five shutouts tied him for sixth. While stopping a league high 28.4 shots per game, DiPietro made a team record 56 saves against the Rangers at Madison Square Garden on March 5.



Wade Dubielewicz
Born Jan. 30, 1979 -- Kerrobert, SK
Height: 5'10"
Weight: 185
Catches: Left

Dubielewicz enters his first Islanders training camp assured of an NHL spot. Dubie earned the job by being the catalyst of the Islanders' miraculous run to the 2007 postseason. Four consecutive wins against the Rangers, Toronto, Philadelphia and New Jersey completed a historic regular season for Dubie and the Islanders. Prior to joining the Islanders late in 2006-07, Dubie was having a memorable season with Bridgeport, posting a record of 22-12-5 with a 2.69 GAA and a .934 SV%.



Joey MacDonald
Born Feb. 7, 1980 -- Pictou, NS
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 198
Catches: Left

MacDonald joins the Islanders after signing a minor league contract earlier this summer. Between 2002 and 2006, MacDonald put up outstanding numbers while playing for Grand Rapids of the AHL, posting a record of 88-57-7. MacDonald made his NHL debut during the 2006-07 season, playing in eight games for Detroit and seven for Boston. In the seven games with the Bruins, MacDonald was 2-2-1 with 2.68 GAA and a .918 SV%.



Mike Mole
Born: Oct. 12, 1982 -- Orleans, ON
Height: 6'
Weight: 183
Catches: Left

After turning heads at the Islanders' Training Camp in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia last September, Mole earned a minor league contract with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, the Islanders' AHL affiliate. During the 2006-07 season, Mole split time between the Sound Tigers and the Islanders' ECHL affiliate, the Pensacola Ice Pilots. In 15 games with Bridgeport, Mole posted a record of 3-8-0 with a 3.23 GAA and .897 SV%. Mole performed well at this summer's Prospect Camp, but will have some competition as he fights for a spot on Bridgeport.



Maxime Ouellet
Born June 17, 1981 -- Beauport, QC
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 195
Catches: Left

A former first-round draft pick of the Philadelphia Flyers, Ouellet joins the Islanders at Training Camp on an invite basis. Despite playing on sub-par teams in the AHL the past few seasons, Ouellet has put up good numbers. He went 22-16-7 in 2002-03 with a 2.40 GAA and a .929 SV% for Portland. The next season, despite going 15-29-8, Ouellet had a GAA of 1.99 and a SV% of .930. Ouelett has appeared in 12 NHL games over five seasons between Philadelphia, Washington and Vancouver.



Mike Morrison
Born July 11, 1979 -- Medford, MA
Height: 6'3"
Weight: 203
Catches: Left 

As a Training Camp invitee, Morrison brings NHL experience to Moncton after bouncing around the AHL and ECHL for his first four pro seasons. In 2005-06, with both of their top netminders out with injuries, Edmonton called on Morrison to hold down the fort. He did that and more, going 10-4-2, while helping Edmonton clinch the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. Since then, Morrison has seen time in the NHL, AHL and ECHL. Last season he split time between the Phoenix Coyotes, San Antonio (AHL) and the Phoenix Roadrunners (ECHL).
