Lubomir Visnovsky scored a power-play goal in his return to the New York Islanders' lineup, but the Detroit Red Wings won handily 4-1 on Saturday.
It's difficult to get too excited about "Lubo" possibly being a mainstay of the Islanders' high-powered man advantage because the team jumbled PP lines quite a bit in this game. The skill and potential is there to at least keep an eye on Visnovsky's progress, however. Jan 31 - 4:52 PM

The New York Islanders confirmed that Lubomir Visnovsky will return to action against the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday. He's expected to replace Brian Strait.

Visnovsky had been sidelined since Jan. 4. As is unfortunately customary with the veteran defenseman, injuries have been a big stumbling block for Visnovsky, who has three goals and 11 points in 29 games. He actually had the same exact totals (though in 24 games) with the Islanders last season, too. The potential is pretty tantalizing, but aside from daily fantasy, he just hasn't been worth the hassle.

Lubomir Visnovsky (upper body) is getting close to returning to the lineup.

It was thought that Visnovsky would play earlier in the week as he has been out of action for close to a month but he was not taken off the injured reserve list. Coach Jack Capuano said that Visnovsky has been 'practicing well.' Stay tuned.

Lubomir Visnovsky (UBI) is expected to return to the Islanders lineup Tuesday night against the Rangers.

Visnovsky has been out of the Isles lineup since January 4th but is set to return Tuesday night to face their cross-town rival, Rangers. The veteran defenseman has three goals and eight assists in 29 games played this season. Kyle Okposo will be placed on injured reserve with Visnovsky coming off IR.
Jan 26 - 10:16 PM

Lubomir Visnovsky is dealing with an upper-body injury.

Visnovsky has been placed on the injured reserve list, retroactive to January 4. He has three goals and 11 points in 29 contests in 2014-15. While he's gone, Matt Donovan might get a chance to re-enter the lineup after spending eight straight games in the press box.
Jan 6 - 2:16 PM

Lubomir Visnovsky had an assist in a 3-1 loss to Montreal on Tuesday.

Visnovsky has two goals and 10 points in 24 games in 2014-15. His fantasy value in recent years has been limited due to injuries, but he's an above average blueliner from an offensive perspective when he's healthy.

Lubomir Visnovsky scored the eventual game winner for the Islanders Saturday.

Visnovsky now has two goals and eight points in 20 injury-plagued games. If he can stay healthy, Visnovsky can be a valuable rearguard as he can score but the big question for the 38-year-old is his health.

The New York Islanders have activated Lubomir Visnovsky (upper body) off of the injured reserve list.

Visnovsky will make his return to the Islanders' lineup on Tuesday. He missed four straight games due to the injury.

Judging by Ryan Pulock's demotion, it sounds like Lubomir Visnovsky could return for the New York Islanders as soon as Tuesday.

Injuries - as always - are an issue for Visnovsky, yet plenty of offensive talent means that the right power-play opportunities good make "Lubo" very useful. It all depends on how Jack Capuano chooses to use him, although he can be valuable even in less-than-ideal circumstances.
Sat, Dec 6, 2014 01:31:00 PM

Lubomir Visnovsky (upper body) is now on the injured reserve list.

The move is retroactive to Nov. 28, so Visnovsky's out Thursday at the least. He has a goal and six points in 17 contests in 2014-15.
Wed, Dec 3, 2014 10:41:00 AM

Lubomir Visnovsky will not return for the third period against the Capitals.

During his 11:14 of ice time, including 1:15 on the power play, Visnovsky blocked three shots. Nothing is known yet about his condition but we'll be sure to keep you posted.

Lubomir Visnovsky had an assist in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win against Anaheim.

The Ducks traded Visnovsky to New York in 2012, so this was an opportunity for him to show what they're missing. Visnovsky was out with a back injury earlier this season, but he now has three points in six contests.

Lubomir Visnovsky had a goal and an assist Saturday.

It was only the second game of the season for the defenseman as he missed the start of the season with a back injury. A more significant fantasy development is that he has taken back his spot on the point during the first power play as he saw 2:39 minutes of pp time compared to Johnny Boychuk's 1:15 and Nick Leddy's 58 seconds. Grab him if you can.
Sun, Oct 26, 2014 09:04:00 AM

Lubomir Visnovsky (back) logged 17:50 minutes in his season debut.

Visnovsky should see his playing time increase as he shakes off the rust. He was also limited to 24 games last season, but he's the Islanders' best offensive defenseman when he's at 100%.
Fri, Oct 24, 2014 11:12:00 AM

Lubomir Visnovsky (back) will make his season debut in Thursday's game versus Boston.

He had been sidelined with back spasms. Visnovsky was limited to just 24 games last season due to concussion issues. He probably has lost his spot on the Islanders' top power-play unit to Johnny Boychuk, which would be a big blow to his fantasy value.
