Visnovsky will not Compete in Olympics
Islanders do not clear defenseman for Sochi Winter Olympics

Following the Islanders game on Saturday against the Colorado Avalanche, Lubomir Visnovsky was evaluated by the team doctors and was not cleared to participate in the upcoming Sochi Winter Olympic Games.

Visnovsky missed 46 of the 60 games the Islanders have played this season.

“I’m honored to have been selected to represent Slovakia at the Sochi Games,” Visnovsky said. “I’m disappointed that I will not have this opportunity to compete for my country, but respect the decision the Islanders have made. I’m excited to watch Team Slovakia compete throughout the next two weeks and wish them all the best.”
