Sources tell Newsday's Arthur Staple that D Lubomir Visnovsky will make his debut Saturday.

Visnovsky practiced with the Islanders for the first time Friday after an ugly post-lockout saga that saw Visnovsky wanting to remain in Europe to be close to his son. While Visnovsky won't likely get close to his 68-point season again, he remains a solid bet to pot 25 points in this lockout season. More importantly, he's expected to play a hefty role in the Isles' already potent power play. If Visnovsky is still on waivers in your league, he wouldn't make a bad pickup.
