Lubomir Visnovsky D NYI 7 Days

Visnovsky scored the game-winning goal Saturday against the Blackhawks. He has two points in three games since returning from injury.

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.

Visnovsky (upper body) was activated from injured reserve and will play Tuesday against the Wild, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

After missing the previous four games with the injury, 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.

Visnovsky (upper body) skated on his own Wednesday and Thursday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

Visnovsky (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Katie Strang of reports.

Because 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.

Visnovsky (upper body) was not at Monday morning's practice, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

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.

Visnovsky notched a power-play assist in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Lightning.

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. 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.
