Islanders unveil new Brooklyn-themed black and white jerseys

Wednesday September 16th, 2015

The New York Islanders unveiled their new alternate jersey on Wednesday. The black and white Brooklyn-themed jersey departs from the traditional Islanders colors of royal blue, orange and white.

The jersey features the same "NY" logo from the Islanders' Stadium Series alternate jersey. Four thin white stripes on the sleeves and socks and four orange stripes on the "NY" logo are intended to represent the team's four Stanley Cups. The new black helmets feature a “BKLYN” decal to represent the team's new home.

The white trim on the bottom of the jersey will have a "B" logo on either side, also featuring four orange stripes. A patch on the right shoulder will commemorate the team's first season in Brooklyn and the left shoulder will recognize former coach Al Arbour.

Islanders general manager Garth Snow said the team wanted its fan base to still be able to see the traditions of the Islanders represented in the jersey. “We feel we've created a jersey our players will be proud to wear that has unique features which will also connect with Brooklyn residents,” Snow said.

The Islanders will debut the new jerseys on Nov. 3 against the New Jersey Devils.
