Agent: Visnovsky 'looks forward to reporting' to Islanders, while KHL club gets big win

Another trans-Atlantic day, another slow trickle of Lubomir Visnovsky news. The latest has his agent, Neil Sheehy, tweeting:

Newsday's Arthur Staple had two sources saying a "family matter" could take two to three weeks. Good thing the New York Islanders are piling up extra defensemen.

Many here and elsewhere have pointed out that 2012-13 became a special homecoming season -- until the end of the lockout, anyway -- for Visnovsky and his compatriots as Slovan Bratislava entered the KHL and is now within reach of a playoff spot. On that note, Tuesday Slovan traveled to regional rival Lev Prague for a key meeting in the West Division race.

Even with Visnovsky barred from suiting up, his team won and opened up a six-point gap over Prague, an 11-point lift over the ninth-place team for eight available playoff spots.

Who knows, maybe everyone will get a portion of what they want.
