DiPietro leads the Canucks onto the ice for warmups.
DiPietro will join the team in Washington to serve as the backup on Tuesday.
DiPietro is one of the league’s top goaltending prospects but has struggled since a midseason trade to the Ottawa 67’s, where he is 7-2-0 despite a 2.82 GAA and .896 SV%. DiPietro will backup Jacob Markstrom vs. the Capitals because Thatcher Demko tweaked something in warmups on Monday.
