Isles' Visnovsky Collects Assist

News: Lubomir Visnovsky notched a power-play assist in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Lightning.
Analysis: The veteran blueliner has one goal, four assists and a plus-3 rating over 12 games, after his season got off to a delayed start due to a back injury. Lubomir Visnovsky doesn't quite score at nearly as loft a rate as he did a few seasons ago, but even at age 38, he carries a little more offensive potential than most defensemen.

Two-Point Night For Isles' Visnovsky

News: Lubomir Visnovsky skated 20:13 in Saturday's win over the Stars. He scored a goal and added an assist.
Analysis: His ice time will continue to stay above the 20-minute mark as long as his back stays healthy. He can deliver you decent production from the back end if you need help. Just be sure to have a handcuff in the likely event of an injury.

Islanders' Visnovsky To Make Season Debut Thursday

News: Lubomir Visnovsky (back) was activated from injured reserve and will make his season debut in Thursday's game against the Bruins.
Analysis: Lubomir Visnovsky has been sidelined with back pain since late September, but he is ready to take the ice after recovering from his setback. He will take the spot of the injured Travis Hamonic (upper body) on the Islanders' second defensive pairing.

Isles' Visnovsky Likely To Come Off IR Thursday

News: Lubomir Visnovsky (back) will more than likely be activated off IR and play Thursday against Boston, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: With the Islanders placing Mikhail Grabovski on IR, they now have a corresponding roster spot available to bring Lubomir Visnovsky back into the fold.

Isles' Visnovsky Won't Play Tuesday

News: Lubomir Visnovsky (back) doesn't look like he'll play Tuesday versus the Maple Leafs, Daniel Friedman of WFAN reports.
Analysis: The Islanders suggested after Monday's practice that Lubomir Visnovsky would be activated from injured reserve Tuesday to make his season debut, but with the defenseman not taking part in the pregame skate, it appears his return to the ice will be pushed back. He'll set his sights on rejoining the lineup Thursday in Boston.

Isles' Visnovsky Nearing Return

News: Lubomir Visnovsky (back) is expected to play in Tuesday's game against the Maple Leafs, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: The veteran blueliner has yet to suit up this season, but sounds like a safe bet to make his season debut Tuesday. He finished 2013-14 with three goals and eight assists in 24 games, and has been battling through injuries quite often over the last few years.

Lubomir Visnovsky

Isles' Visnovsky Returns To Practice

News: Lubomir Visnovsky (back) practiced with the team for the first time in nearly two weeks Thursday, Newsday reports.
Analysis: Lubomir Visnovsky also stated that his back is fully healed and it's just a matter of getting into playing condition before he returns to game action. Assuming he doesn't suffer any setbacks, Visnovsky should play for the Islanders at some point early next week.

Isles' Visnovsky Still Not Practicing

News: Lubomir Visnovsky (back) still has yet to return to practice, according to Newsday.
Analysis: Lubomir Visnovsky has skated on his own for the last three days but his back still isn't ready for contact. Visnovsky was a sleeper pick for Fantasy owners early in the draft season but due to his inability to stay healthy for any length of time and recent additions to the Islanders blue line, he may not quite be the asset he once was.

Islanders' Visnovsky Expected To Open On IR

News: Lubomir Visnovsky (back) is expected to open the season on injured reserve, Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.
Analysis: The Islanders hoped that Lubomir Visnovsky would be ready for the beginning of the season, but it turns out he needs more time to recover from his back injury. It remains to be seen when he will be ready to make his regular season debut.

Visnovsky Still Not Practicing With Isles

News: Although he's still not practicing, Lubomir Visnovsky (back) is expected to be ready for Opening Night on Oct. 10, according to Newsday.
Analysis: While that's good news, it should also be taken with a grain of salt as Lubomir Visnovsky has been injury plagued since being traded to the Isles and it would seem unlikely he will go through an entire season without hitting the IR at least once.

Isles' Visnovsky Leaves Practice

News: Lubomir Visnovsky left Monday's practice with back spasms.
Analysis: The team is calling Lubomir Visnovsky day-to-day, but it's a bad sign that the injury-plagued veteran is already sidelined. He only played in 24 games last season, racking up three goals and eight assists in the process.

Visnovsky Reports To Islanders Camp

News: Lubomir Visnovsky has completely recovered from the concussion that ended his 2013-14 season and reported to camp, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Lubomir Visnovsky may not be the defenseman he once was, but he should still anchor the Islanders' top power-play unit and could be a viable fantasy option if health permits.

Isles' Visnovsky Still Wants To Play

News: Lubomir Visnovsky (concussion) is not considering retirement, according to Newsday.
Analysis: Lubomir Visnovsky missed 58 games this past season due to the concussion but is still not ready to call it a career. He should still be a top four defenseman for the Isles next season.

Lubomir Visnovsky

Season Finished For Isles' Visnovsky

News: Coach Jack Capuano said none of the Islanders' injured players -- which includes Lubomir Visnovsky (concussion) -- will return this season, reports Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Concussion issues limited the 37-year-old Lubomir Visnovsky to just 24 games this season, during which he collected three goals and 11 points. With his history of injury problems and the particularly harsh ramifications of repeated concussions, it's not inconceivable that Visnovsky could hang 'em up for good.

Isles' Visnovsky Out With Concussion

News: Lubomir Visnovsky is suffering from concussion symptoms once again, according to Newsday.
Analysis: Lubomir Visnovsky suffered a concussion earlier this season that cost him 48 games. There is no timetable for his return and some speculation that his season could be over.

Isles' Vislovsky (Upper Body) Likely Out Sunday

News: Lubomir Visnovsky (upper body) is unlikely for Sunday's contest, Arthur Staple of Newsday roeports.
Analysis: Lubomir Visnovsky's injury must have come at some point during Tuesday's game, as he did play throughout. The report indicates the Isles could call up Scott Mayfield to replace Visnovsky while he's out.

Isles' Visnovsky: Trio Of Helpers

News: Lubomir Visnovsky put up three assists in Saturday's win over Buffalo.
Analysis: Wow -- 11 points in 23 games doesn't sound half bad for a defender until you consider his lack of playing time due to concussion this season. Bottom line? Use him while he's healthy. Just have a back-up plan.

Isles' Visnovsky The Hero In Win Over Leafs

News: Lubomir Visnovsky scored the game-winning goal in overtime as the Islanders dispatched the Maple Leafs on Thursday, 5-4.
Analysis: After choosing to sit out the Olympics after missing a large chunk of the first half with a concussion, Lubomir Visnovsky certainly looked like he benefit from the added rest in Thursday's contest. The unassisted tally was his third goal of the season and gives him six points in 15 games. While he could struggle to maintain a helpful plus/minus rating on a non-contending Islanders squad, he should offer above-average scoring for a defenseman the rest of the way.

Isles' Visnovsky: Two-Point Game

News: Lubomir Visnovsky scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's loss to the Avalanche. It's his first goal of the season and first points since Oct. 15.
Analysis: Obviously, there was a long period of time where he was on the shelf. But Viz is a solid fantasy option going forward. He'll have extra time over the Olympic break to recharge his batteries.

Isles' Visnovsky Won't Play In Olympics

News: The Islanders will not allow Lubomir Visnovsky to play for Team Slovak in the Olympics, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Lubomir Visnovsky has missed a good chunk of the season due to a concussion and obviously the Islanders feel that it would not be worth the risk to have Lubomir play in Sochi.

Lubomir Visnovsky

Isles Visnovsky Held Scoreless In Return

News: Lubomir Visnovsky played over 22 minutes in his return after missing almost three months worth of action.
Analysis: What should be of importance to fantasy owners is that Lubomir Visnovsky played over seven minutes on the power play. Lubomir will anchor and Isles power play that can be very dangerous when running on all cylinders.

Isles' Visnovsky To Return Monday

News: Lubomir Visnovsky (concussion) has been activated from IR and will play Monday vs. the Bruins, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: The defenseman will draw back into the lineup for the first time since Oct. 20, playing in just his ninth game of the season. Lubomir Visnovsky could be a bit rusty after the three-month layoff, but as the Islanders' top offensive blueliner, he should be a fixture on the top power-play unit while providing above-average scoring numbers relative to other fantasy options at his position.

Isles' Visnovsky Could Play Monday

News: Lubomir Visnovsky (concussion) could play Monday versus the Bruins, according to Newsday.
Analysis: Lubomir Visnovsky has been out of action since Oct. 20, missing 46 games. Even if he doesn't play Monday, this is a pretty good sign that he should be back in action sooner rather than later. The Islanders will welcome him back with open arms as they need all the help they can get on their blue line.

Isles' Visnovsky Sheds Non-Contact Jersey

News: Lubomir Visnovsky (concussion) skated without a non-contact jersey on during Thursday's session, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Although any contact work Lubomir Visnovsky got in was probably light, it certainly looks as though he's nearing the end of his recovery from the concussion. He could be back in the lineup at some point next week.

Isles' Visnovsky Practices Sunday

News: Lubomir Visnovsky (concussion) was back at practice Sunday.
Analysis: The Islanders defenseman was in a yellow jersey for practice Sunday. While he's been skating for the last few days, this was his first practice since he left a late October game with the original concussion. There is still no set timetable for his return.
