Rehabbing goaltender Rick DiPietro has been officially recalled from his conditioning assignment in Bridgeport and is on the ice with the Islanders for this morning's practice.

They are currently resurfacing the ice, but DiPietro has been alternating in net with fellow netminders Dwayne Roloson and Martin Biron and facing shots for the past 45 minutes.

Considering he faced 35 shots from Worcester Sunday and also played Friday, DiPietro is seeing a lot of rubber.

No word yet on whether he'll make this road trip.

Nate Thompson (shoulder) is on the ice in a yellow non-contact jersey as is Sean Bergenheim (rib). Will also see if either of those two will be accompanying the team on their West Coast jaunt.

Brendan Witt had the day off and did not practice with the team
