09:22 AM ET 10.27 | He is 32 now, healthy, unencumbered by a contract to scare teams away. Rick DiPietro is looking forward to the first day of the rest of his NHL life. "Rick is in a mentally good place where he's looking for the opportunity to play hockey and prove that he can play at a high level," Ian Pulver, DiPietro's agent, told Slap Shots on Thursday. "He's up for the challenge." The chance to meet that challenge has been given to DiPietro by the Hurricanes, whose No. 1 netminder, Cam Ward, is lost for up to a month with a lower body issue, and whose organizational depth in net is negligible. DiPietro, as reported by The Post on Twitter, has accepted a Professional Try Out from Carolina's AHL Charlotte affiliate.

Arturs isn't a very good name for a hurricane.

Perhaps... the Dominator would like another try out or Hurricane Beezer

I'd suggest they bring back Kevin Weekes but besides Donald C, he's the only decent thing the CBC has going for it.

Any truth to the rumour his stall at the ACC is called the "Always Hurt Locker"? :-)

Yet he was still up for the one finger salute when his buddy said "are you in pain?''
