As a guy who likes to get out to the Isle to catch a game or two and ultimately, to be able to walk down the block to catch games at Barclay's.
It's nice to see the Islanders can retain some of their veteran guys.
It was not only stability for his family, but there were issues in Slovakia he wanted to deal with.
According to TSN's Bob McKenzie, Visnovsky's new contract includes a no-movement clause with a key bullet point.
He can be dealt in the second year of the contract at the trade deadline if the Islanders are out of playoff contention.
Despite all the drama that preceded his arrival to Long Island, Visnovsky brought over his wife and two children in early March after tending to a personal matter in Slovakia and expressed his happiness with his current situation.
Through 22 game this season, Visnovsky has three goals, nine points and is third on the team in time on ice with an even 23 minutes. His presence has helped out the NHL's 8th-ranked power play, with six of his nine points coming with the extra man.
Next on Snow's list is team captain Mark Streit. Staple reported this week that the two sides are progressing toward a three-year extension.
Keeping Streit would be great for them as well.
