Anaheim will receive a second-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft for Visnovsky, who had six goals and 27 points in 68 games for the Ducks this past season. In 2010-11, he had 18 goals and 68 points -- the most in the NHL among defensemen.

Visnovsky, who turns 36 in August, will cost $5.6 million against the salary cap for the Islanders next season, though his 2012-13 salary is $3 million, according to CapGeek. A veteran defenseman was considered a top priority for the Islanders this offseason.

Quote of the Day

I think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.
