NHL Arbitrator Upholds Visnovsky Trade to Islanders

The New York Islanders announced today that an NHL arbitrator has upheld the June 22 trade that saw the club acquire defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for a second round selection in the 2013 National Hockey League Draft.

Visnovsky has played the last three seasons with the Ducks, totaling 108 points (29 goals and 79 assists) in 165 games. He had a career year with Anaheim during the 2010-11 campaign, when he scored 18 goals and 50 assists (68 points) in 81 games.

The 5’10”, 197-pound defenseman spent two seasons playing for the Edmonton Oilers from 2008-2010. Visnovsky scored 63 points (18 goals and 45 assists) over the two years in Edmonton. The Los Angeles Kings originally drafted Visnovsky, where he played seven years with the organization, accumulating 279 points (70 goals and 209 assists) in 499 games with the Kings.

A native of Topolcany, Slovakia, Visnovsky has represented his country in four Winter Olympics, totaling eight points (four goals and four assists) in 19 games. Visnovsky has also represented Slovakia at nine World Championships, as well as the World Cup Tournament in 1996 and 2004.
