NEW YORK (AP) -- The agent for suspended New York Islanders defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky says he will report to the team by Feb. 11.

Neil Sheehy posted on his Twitter account Saturday night that Visnovsky would be back "no later than Feb 11th, possibly sooner." Sheehy says Visnovsky was away because of "personal medical reasons within his immediate family."

The Islanders suspended Visnovsky, acquired in a June trade, for failing to report to the team for the start of the NHL season.
