Visnovsky uninjured in car accident
New York Islanders defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky was uninjured after an automobile accident in Slovakia on Saturday.

New York Islanders defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky was uninjured after an automobile accident in Slovakia on Saturday.

Visnovsky, who was acquired from the Anaheim Ducks at this year's NHL Draft in exchange for a second-round pick in 2013, was participating in a race at the Automotodróm Slovakia Ring motor circuit and crashed his Ferrari into a barrier head on.

"I have spoken directly with Lubomir, and am pleased to report that he did not suffer any serious injuries," Isles general manager Garth Snow said in a statement released by the team Saturday night.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
