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. Apr 23 - 10:24 AM

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.

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

Feb 19 - 6:21 PM

Lubomir Visnovsky will be a healthy scratch on Tuesday.
