Islanders unveil new black-and-white Brooklyn third jerseys
The New York Islanders have unveiled their black and white third jersey for the team’s inaugural season in Brooklyn. On Tuesday, Nov. 3, the team will debut the entire uniform when they take on the New Jersey Devils at Barclays Center.
The jersey is now available for purchase at both Islanders Pro Shops, located at Iceworks, the official team practice facility in Syosset and at the Pro Shop in Dix Hills Park. Fans can also purchase the jersey at the Team Shop at Barclays Center. For information on purchasing the jersey online, visit shop.NHL.com.
The black and white jersey, designed by Reebok, features the Islanders secondary “NY” logo that originally debuted on the team’s Stadium Series jersey in 2014. Four stripes, paying homage to the four Stanley Cup Championships, are a theme that resonates throughout the entire uniform. The stripes are included on the jersey’s front crest in orange, and on the sleeves and players’ socks in white.
“It was extremely important to ensure that our passionate fan base could still see the traditions of the New York Islanders represented in this third jersey,” Islanders General Manager Garth Snow said. “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.”
The bottom of the jersey has white trim with identical “B” logos on each side that will serve as secondary marks. The “B”, representing the Islanders’ home borough, will also feature the four orange stripes through the letter. The helmet will feature a “BKLYN” logo, with four orange stripes through the letter “Y”. The players’ gloves and pants will also be black and white.
“While being respectful of the tradition of the Islanders’ current uniforms, we are thrilled to have been able to collaboratively find a balance that embraces Brooklyn with the new third jersey,” said Barclays Center CEO Brett Yormark. “The colors of black and white infuse the spirit of Brooklyn into the borough’s new home team, while the four stripes seen throughout the uniform pay homage to the Islanders famed Stanley Cup dynasty.”
On the right shoulder of the third jersey, as well as the classic home and away jerseys, the team will have inaugural season patches to commemorate the first year in Brooklyn. On the left shoulder, the Islanders will recognize the greatest NHL coach of all-time, Al Arbour, with an “AL” patch.
