Every day must feel like Friday the 13th for Rick DiPietro.

The 30-year-old goaltender appears headed for yet another injury-shortened season. After spending the past month on injured reserve, DiPietro will undergo sports hernia surgery next week to repair a lingering groin injury, a source confirmed to ESPNNewYork.com.

DiPietro, whose albatross 15-year $67.5 million deal has him singed through 2021, told Newsday's Arthur Staple he has no plans to retire.
