Michael DiPietro has been recalled by the NHL's Vancouver Canucks.

In a release sent out on Monday, Canucks GM Jim Benning said the club has recalled DiPietro from the Utica Coments because goalie Jacob Markstrom has been granted a leave of absence to attend his father’s memorial service.

DiPietro has played 13 games, posting a 7-4-1 record, a 2.44 GAA and a .913 save percentage in his first professional season.

DiPietro split the 2018-19 season between Windsor and Ottawa of the OHL, posting a record of 23-12-1 and a league best 2.40 GAA, leading Ottawa to the OHL finals with a 13-0-0 record.

The Amherstrburg native also represented Canada in four appearances at the World Junior Championships. DiPietro was selected 64th overall by Vancouver in the 2017 NHL Draft.
