Visnovsky placed on IR

By Katie Strang

The Islanders will be without Lubomir Visnovsky for at least a week, as the team placed the veteran defenseman on injured reserve with a concussion retroactive to October 19.

The 37-year-old blue-liner was injured by an incidental hit to the head during the first period of the team's 4-3 loss to Carolina on Saturday.

The team also announced the recall of Brock Nelson after loaning him to play for Bridgeport (AHL) Sunday.
