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.
