Description: Defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky is expected to make him season debut Thursday night against Boston.

Description: Defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky is the Islanders best fantasy defenseman by default.
Insight: Visnovsky is 38-years-old and has seen his offensive numbers decrease over the last few years. He will likely still run the point on the power play because no other defenseman seems poised to take the job. If he does run the power play, he could see big fantasy numbers with John Tavares scoring a lot. Therefore, Visnovsky is a high-risk, high-reward player on draft day.

Description: The KHL has rejected Lubomir Visnovsky's contract with HC Slovan. The KHL has an agreement with the NHL to honor each other's contracts. SOURCE: Yahoo! Sports
Insight: Visnovsky wants to finish the season in the KHL instead of coming back to the Islanders. The team has suspended him for failing to report to training camp and could eventually carry the remaining year on his contract over to next season if the situation drags on long enough. Visnovsky was a top-30 fantasy defenseman last season and we expect he'll return to the team so he can become an unrestricted free agent this upcoming summer.
