EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) -Oilers defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky will have season-ending shoulder surgery this week.

A team spokesman said Tuesday doctors will repair the labrum in his right shoulder. Visnovsky was injured during Edmonton's 3-1 home loss to Chicago on Feb. 3 and went on the injured reserve list two days later.

He has eight goals and 23 points in 50 games this season.
