BREAKING THE ICE: MIKEY DIPIETROOct 17, 2019
At just 20 years old, Comets goalie Michael DiPietro is no stranger to tragedy. His birth mom, Rebecca, died when Mikey was only five years old. Through this loss, Mikey and his dad Vic have formed an unbreakable bond.
Family means everything to the DiPietro family. Vic eventually remarried and Sue Fenty-DiPietro has played a huge part in Mikey’s life.
DiPietro was named the starter for the Comets home opener. With a 6-2 victory over the Crunch, the rookie earned his first career win and gave his parents, who were proudly in attendance, the game puck.
