This morning, the Islanders announced that defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky was placed on IR after suffering a concussion in Saturday's loss to Carolina.
Visnovsky left the game during the first period and it was announced shortly thereafter that he wouldn't return. The Islanders taking this action means that Visnovsky will miss at least three games. A more detailed timetable on him hasn't been announced yet. With this, I would be surprised if the team doesn't extend a contract offer to Radek Martinek soon.
