Lubomir Visnovsky D NYI Jun 24 '78

Lubomir Visnovsky has accepted the arbitrator's decision to uphold his trade to the New York Islanders.

Visnovsky attempted to void the trade on the grounds that he had a no-trade clause when the Ducks traded him. "This was a CBA issue between the NHL and the NHLPA," Visnovsky's agent, Neil Sheehy said. "The language wasn't clear, it's clear now. The arbitrator made it clear. I fully accept it and Lubo does as well, there are no issues. The arbitrator has spoken." Assuming the looming lockout doesn't wipe out the 2012-13 campaign, Visnovsky will attempt to bounce back from his disappointing 2011-12 season. This is a contract year for him.
