Agent: Visnovsky will report to Islanders by Feb. 11
Lubomir Visnovsky’s agent, Neil Sheehy, announced via Twitter on Saturday night that the 36-year-old defenseman will report to the club "no later than Feb 11th, possibly sooner, due to personal medical reasons within his immediate family."

Lubomir Visnovsky will be with the New York Islanders soon.

Visnovsky’s agent, Neil Sheehy, announced via Twitter on Saturday night that the 36-year-old defenseman will report to the club "no later than Feb 11th, possibly sooner, due to personal medical reasons within his immediate family."

Visnovsky, who was acquired in June from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for a second-round pick at the 2013 NHL Draft, was suspended by the Islanders for failing to report to training camp. He played for Slovan Bratislava of the Kontinental Hockey League during the work stoppage.

A former fourth-round pick of the Los Angeles Kings (No. 118 in 2000), Visnovsky has 117 goals and 333 assists in 771 NHL games between L.A., the Edmonton Oilers and Anaheim Ducks. He had six goals and 21 assists in 68 games for the Ducks last season.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
