ISLANDERS TRADE 2013 2ND ROUND PICK FOR ANA D LUBOMIR VISNOVSKY

Visnovsky is 35-years old — turning 36 in August — and has one year remaining on his contract. Click here for Visnovsky’s career statistics.

This is a win for the Islanders, as Snow fills a glaring need for the team on defense. The Islanders acquire a defender who put up 68 points two seasons ago, 31 of those on the powerplay. Visnovsky had a down year last year, but so did the rest of the Ducks as a team. With one year left on his deal, he will hopefully be a solid top 4 contributor at even strength and power play.
