Lubomir Visnovsky has decided to hang up his skates.
Visnovsky attended the Blackhawks' 2015 training camp, but didn't make the team. He instead signed with the KHL's Bratislava Slovan for the 2015-16 campaign. Visnovsky is closing the books on a career that included 883 NHL games over stints with the Los Angeles Kings, Edmonton Oilers, Anaheim Ducks, and New York Islanders. He surpassed the 40-point mark on five separate occasions and set a career high with 68 points back in 2010-11. All told, he scored 128 goals and 495 points over the course of his career.

Chicago has released Lubomir Visnovsky from training camp.

This move comes as a bit of a surprise as it was thought the Blackhawks could use some veteran depth on the back end. Visnovsky had five goals and 20 points in 53 games with the New York Islanders last year.

Lubomir Visnovsky has accepted a professional tryout offer with the Chicago Blackhawks.

Visnovsky is 39 years old now, but he still might be a valuable sixth or seventh defenseman with Chicago if he makes the team. He had five goals and 20 points in 53 contests with the New York Islanders in 2014-15.

Lubomir Visnovsky is entertaining the possibility of signing with a European club.

Visnovsky is intent on extending his playing career, but he's unlikely to re-sign with the New York Islanders. The 38-year-old had five goals and 20 points in 53 games last season. If he does land an NHL contract, we would be very hesitant to recommend drafting him in standard leagues at this stage of his career.

Lubomir Visnovsky is out indefinitely with an upper-body injury.

Although it hasn't been confirmed, the fear is that Visnovsky has a concussion after absorbing a big hit from Washington's Tom Wilson. Given Visnovsky's concussion history, that would potentially be a very serious setback for the 38=year-old defenseman. It might even unfortunately mark the end of his playing career given his age, but it's way too early to know if that will be the case. It's still possible that Visnovsky will be back before the end of the Islanders' playoff run.

Lubomir Visnovsky left Tuesday's game after receiving a high hit from Washington's Tom Wilson.

Visnovsky has a concussion history, so this is obviously a concerning development. He has two assists in four contests in the 2015 playoffs.

Lubomir Visnovsky recorded an assist in a 2-1 overtime win against Washington on Sunday.

That victory gave the Islanders a 2-1 series lead in the first round. Visnovsky was occasionally a healthy scratch during the regular season, but he's averaging 19:09 minutes per contest so far in the postseason. The 38-year-old defenseman also has two points in the three games.

Lubomir Visnovsky's goal wasn't enough as the Anaheim Ducks beat his New York Islanders 3-2 on Saturday.

It was the first time "Lubo" has played since March 13. You likely know that injuries are a consistent concern for Visnovsky, who's production has slipped in advancing years, too.

Lubomir Visnovsky (lower body) has pronounced himself ready to play on Saturday.

Lubomir Visnovsky (lower body) was on the ice Thursday.

The hope is that Visnovsky will be able to return to the Islanders' lineup next week. That would give him enough time to shake off the rust before the playoffs start. He has four goals and 15 points in 46 contests in 2014-15.

Lubomir Visnovsky will be scratched as Matt Donovan gets his 10th game of the season on Saturday night against Montreal.

Visnovsky has had a decent season through 46 games, compiling four goals, 15 points, 33 hits, and 53 blocks. Not too shabby for the 39 year old and 15 season veteran. Donovan hasn't played since Jan. 6th, and has just nine games to his credit this season. He's put forth three assists, 12 blocks, and 17 hits during that time.

Lubomir Visnovsky will tag in for Brian Strait, and pair with Thomas Hickey against the Dallas Stars on Tuesday night.

Through 40 games this season, Visnovsky has posted just four goals and 13 points along with 27 hits and 42 blocks. Unfortunately, he's no longer the fantasy stud he used to be.

The New York Islanders are going with Brian Strait instead of Lubomir Visnovsky on defense Saturday.

It says a lot about the Isles' improved defensive depth that they can scratch "Lubo" fairly regularly, although it does also highlight the fact that the injury prone (yet talented) blueliner isn't the offensive threat he once was.
