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.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
