from Katie Strang of ESPN NewYork,
Veteran defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky will not be reporting to Islanders training camp Monday for "personal reasons," his agent told ESPNNewYork.com.
His agent, Neil Sheehy, said he did not know whether Visnovsky will remain with the KHL's Slovan Bratislava, where he played during the lockout.
Visnovsky issued a statement through Sheehy last week expressing his desire to remain in Europe. The Islanders can suspend Visnovsky for failing to report.
The KHL and NHL have an agreement that all players with NHL contracts are obligated to return to the NHL once the lockout is lifted.
Visnovsky's case might be the first legitimate test of the sincerity of the agreement.
