by NHL.com Staff / NHL.com

New York Islanders defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky will miss Tuesday's game against the Montreal Canadiens due to personal reasons.

According to a report by Arthur Staple of Newsday, Visnovsky also will miss Thursday's game against the New York Rangers.

Visnovsky has a goal and six points in 12 games since joining the Islanders.

He initially was suspended by the team at the beginning of the season for failure to report following a trade from the Anaheim Ducks. Visnovsky's agent later said he was tending to personal matters and reported to the Islanders last month, making his season debut Feb. 9.
