This morning the Islanders skated at the Coliseum and multiple reports say that defender Lubomir Visnovsky has been skating with the team and is not wearing a non-contact jersey. This implies that Visnovsky has been cleared for contact and could be close to returning to game action. The defender has been out since October 19th with a concussion.
Evgeni Nabokov also practice with the team this morning. Nabokov has been out since getting injured on January 6 against Dallas.
