Visnovsky Won't Play Saturday For Islanders

News: Lubomir Visnovsky will be a healthy scratch Saturday for the Islanders, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: The Islanders and Lubomir Visnovsky played Friday, so this may be a case where coach Jack Capuano doesn't want the veteran defenseman to play back-to-back days. Brian Strait will enter the lineup in place of Visnovsky.

Isles' Visnovsky Will Play Sunday

News: Lubomir Visnovsky will return to the Islanders lineup Sunday versus the Canucks, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Lubomir Visnovsky is expected to take the place of Brian Strait. With the exception of Johnny Boychuk and Nick Leddy, coach Jack Capuano has been rotating five defensemen for four spots over the past few weeks with Visnovsky being sat most often. Visnvosky adds a powerful shot from the point but has has lapses in the defensive zone which has caught the wrath of Capuano and been the main reason for his being a healthy scratch.

Islanders' VIsnovsky Out Of Lineup Saturday

News: Lubomir Visnovsky will be a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against the Capitals, but he will return to the lineup for Sunday's game against Vancouver Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.
Analysis: Calvin de Haan will replace Lubomir Visnovsky on the third line Saturday afternoon.

Isles' Visnovsky Returns To Lineup

News: Lubomir Visnovsky is slated to return to the Islanders' lineup Thursday against the Preds.
Analysis: Lubomir Visnovsky, who sat out Tuesday's game against the Hurricanes, checks back into the the Isles' lineup with just one helper over his last six outings and with 13 points in 36 games to date, overall.

Visnovsky Won't Play Tuesday For The Islanders

News: Lubomir Visnovsky won't play Tuesday as the Islanders visit Carolina, according to the Islanders web site.
Analysis: No injury has been reported here so Lubomir Visnovsky is likely once again a healthy scratch. With Calvin de Haan ready to play once again it was either Visnovsky or Brian Strait who would ride the pine, and coach Jack Capuano prefers Strait at this point in time. However, some might wonder why, as Strait really doesn't add much on offense or defense.

Lubomir Visnovsky

Isles' Visnovsky To Be Healthy Scratch Thursday

News: Lubomir Visnovsky is healthy, but won't play Thursday at Philadelphia, reports Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: "Last time we won a game Brian [Strait] was in there," coach Jack Capuano said. "He deserves it." This would be some interesting strategy, as Strait is far from anyone's idea of a top defenseman; he possesses little of the offensive ability Lubomir Visnovsky has shown in the past. Either way, Visnovsky shouldn't be out of the lineup for long.

Isles' Visnovsky Bags Goal In Return

News: Lubomir Visnovsky (upper body) scored the Isles' lone goal in his return to the lineup Saturday against the Red Wings.
Analysis: He finished the afternoon with three shots over 18:14 of ice time, with three of those minutes coming on the power play, where he tallied his fourth goal of the season. Lubomir Visnovsky will occupy a third-pairing role for the Isles now that he's back healthy again, with most of his scoring chances likely to come on the man advantage.

Isles Activate Visnovsky

News: Lubomir Visnovsky (upper body) was activated from injured reserve Saturday.
Analysis: Lubomir Visnovsky appears to be ready to go after missing about three weeks with the injury. The veteran rearguard has seen his offense hit the skids over the last few seasons, with an inability to stay healthy undoubtedly factoring into his decline. Even with his career on the downturn, Visnovsky will still likely represent an upgrade over Brian Strait, who he figures to replace in lineup for Saturday's tilt with the Red Wings.

Lubomir Visnovsky

Isles' Visnovsky Could Be Option For Saturday

News: Coach Jack Capuano said Lubomir Visnovsky (upper body) could be a lineup option for Saturday's game against the Red Wings, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Lubomir Visnovsky has been practicing since prior to the All-Star break, but wasn't cleared to return to game action when the Islanders resumed play Tuesday against the Rangers, as had been anticipated. It seems the Islanders are simply waiting for the aging rearguard to get closer to 100 percent health, and he may finally be at that point Saturday. The team's practice lines and defensive pairings during Saturday's morning skate should indicate whether or not Visnovsky will return to the lineup later that evening.

Isles' Visnovsky Not Back In Tuesday

News: Lubomir Visnovsky (upper body) will not play Tuesday against the Rangers.
Analysis: It sounded like Lubomir Visnovsky would be ready to play after he resumed practicing with the team last week, but evidently, the Islanders feel more comfortable about giving him some additional time off to recover. If he continues to skate without any setbacks over the next two days, he could draw back in the lineup Thursday versus the Bruins.

Islanders' Visnovsky Expected Back Tuesday

News: Lubomir Visnovsky (upper body) is expected to return for Tuesday's game against the Rangers, Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.
Analysis: Lubomir Visnovsky returned to practice last Tuesday, so it's not surprise that he'll be ready for the first game of the second half. He has three goals and eight assists in 29 games this season.

Isles' Visnovsky Returns To Practice

News: Lubomir Visnovsky (upper body) returned to practice for the Islanders on Tuesday, reports Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Lubomir Visnovsky hasn't played since Jan. 4, but with the Islanders having a full seven days off after their victory over the Flyers on Monday, there's a good chance he'll return to the lineup when the Islanders play against the Rangers next Tuesday.

Isles' Visnovsky Still Not Practicing

News: Lubomir Visnovsky (upper body) wasn't on the ice for practice Thursday, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Lubomir Visnovsky has been on and off the IR all season. While he has been valuable when healthy, he has also been very tough to rely on this season.

Isles Place Visnovsky On IR

News: Lubomir Visnovsky (upper body) was placed on IR on Tuesday.
Analysis: Lubomir Visnovsky likely suffered the injury Sunday against the Oilers. While the severity of the injury is unclear at this point in time, Visnovsky will have to sit out the Isles' next three games, as he won't be eligible to come off IR until next Tuesday's game against the Rangers.

Isles Visnovsky: Two Points In Three Since Return

News: Lubomir Visnovsky scored the game-winning goal Saturday against the Blackhawks. He has two points in three games since returning from injury.
Analysis: Yah, he's a little long in the tooth, but he can still put up a few points. Grab him off the wire if you need a 30-point defender -- he's on pace for that kind of tally.

Isles Activate Visnovsky

News: Lubomir Visnovsky (upper body) was activated from injured reserve and will play Tuesday against the Wild, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: After missing the previous four games with the injury, Lubomir Visnovsky will replace Matt Donovan in the lineup, assuming a top-four spot for the Islanders on defense. The 38-year-old's best years may be behind him at this point, but he still offers a little more offensive punch than most blueliners. He's notched six points and a plus-5 rating over 17 games this season.

Isles' Visnovsky Returns To Practice

News: Lubomir Visnovsky (upper body) returned to practice Friday, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: There is still no word on whether or not Lubomir Visnovsky will play Saturday versus the Blues but his return to practice is an indication that he should be back with the team no later than Tuesday.

Isles' Visnovsky Resumes Skating

News: Lubomir Visnovsky (upper body) skated on his own Wednesday and Thursday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Lubomir Visnovsky looks like he might be ready to resume practicing soon, but it's tough to determine when he might suit up again. He'll miss his third straight game Thursday.

Isles Place Visnovsky On IR

News: Lubomir Visnovsky (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Katie Strang of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Because Lubomir Visnovsky's IR stint will be retroactive to Nov. 28, he'll at least miss Wednesday's game against the Senators, and most likely some time beyond that. Visnovsky has yet to return to the ice for practice since leaving Friday's game with the injury.

Isles' Visnovsky Out Tuesday

News: Lubomir Visnovsky (upper body) will not play Tuesday against the Senators.
Analysis: Lubomir Visnovsky hasn't resumed practicing since leaving Friday's game against the Capitals and will miss his second straight game as a consequence. The Islanders haven't offered a timetable for the blueliner's return.

Isles' Visnovsky Misses Practice

News: Lubomir Visnovsky (upper body) was not at Monday morning's practice, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Lubomir Visnovsky left Friday's game against the Capitals with an upper body injury, and sat out Saturday's matchup with the Devils. There's no timetable for Visnovsky's return right now, but it's a bad sign for fantasy owners that the injury plagued blueliner is already sidelined once again.

Islanders' Visnovsky Out Saturday

News: Lubomir Visnovsky (upper body) will not play Saturday against the Devils.
Analysis: Lubomir Visnovsky will sit out due to the injury he suffered in Friday's game. Matt Donovan will enter the lineup in Visnovsky's place.

Isles' Visnovsky Leaves Game With Injury

News: Lubomir Visnovsky (upper body) suffered the injury some time during the second period of Friday's game, and will not return for the third period.
Analysis: It's unclear how serious the injury is, but the team should update Lubomir Visnovsky's status before the Islanders take on the Devils on Saturday.

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.
