Islanders lift suspension of Lubomir Visnovsky

The SportsXchange

The New York Islanders lifted the suspension of defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky on Thursday.

Visnovsky, 36, was acquired by the Islanders from the Anaheim Ducks last June for a second-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft, but Visnovsky filed a grievance over the deal that would have voided the trade. Visnovsky then refused to report to the Islanders after an arbitrator ruled against his grievance.

Visnovsky passed a physical on Thursday and will begin practicing with the Islanders on Friday. He was activated to the Islanders roster and could make his debut with the team as early as Saturday.

Visnovsky with Bratislava Slovan of the Kontinental Hockey League during the lockout. In his 11-year NHL career, he has 117 goals with the Kings, Oilers and Ducks.
