VIDEO: Amherstburg's DiPietro Shelled in his NHL Debut

A rough NHL debut for Michael DiPietro as he allowed seven goals in Vancouver's 7-2 loss against the San Jose Sharks.

DiPietro started because Jacob Markstrom was sidelined with lower-body tightness.

The 19-year-old native of Amherstburg, was called up from the Ontario Hockey League's Ottawa 67's on an emergency basis last week after Canucks backup Thatcher Demko was sidelined with a knee sprain.

Evander Kane scored twice for San Jose.

The victory moves San Jose (34-16-7) into first place in the Western Conference and extends its win streak to six games.

Bo Horvat and Derrick Pouliot answered for Vancouver (25-25-7).
