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

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
