New York Islanders defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky suffered a concussion during the first period of his team's game Saturday night against the Carolina Hurricanes at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

Visnovsky collected a puck behind the Islanders' net during the first period and took a hit from Hurricanes forward Radek Dvorak. Visnovsky was favoring his left shoulder after the hit; he headed to the dressing room and did not join the Islanders on the ice for the start of the second period. The team announced via its Twitter account that Visnovsky had suffered a concussion and would not return

Visnovsky, 37, has a goal and two assists in eight games.

Quote of the Day

I came into a team that had 65 points, that was at the bottom of the basement, a team that everybody wrote off as never going to be good. My goal is to go from the very bottom to the very top.

— Forward Brandon Dubinsky on signing a six-year contract extension with the Columbus Blue Jackets
