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

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.

Visnovsky (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Katie Strang of ESPN.com 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 (upper body) suffered the injury some time during the second period, and will not return for the third period.

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.

Visnovsky skated 20:13 in Saturday's win over the Stars. He scored a goal and added an assist.

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 injury.

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.
