Isles Counting Down To Third Jersey

As of yesterday, we now know all of the third jersey launch dates. But it's still nice to get confirmations from the individual teams — and to know that they're as excited about all of this as we are.

Having said that, the New York Islanders' official web site now features a countdown at the top of the page. What's it counting down to? You guessed it.



That countdown appears to confirm November 1 as the big day. The bigger geeks among you will be able to pinpoint down the second, the time at which I made that screenshot above.

Anyway, I'm told the Isles are marketing the game as "Throwback Night" and they'll be facing the Montreal Canadiens. Shocker.

Thanks to Lucas for the tip!

Hey by the way, if you're still on the Islanders' web site, there's a cool feature you should check out about the guy who's in charge of getting the ice done at the Nassau Coliseum.

they had one two years ago.....it was orange, and a nice change from the rest of the league.

Of course it's a long shot, but we have seen some fantastic concepts on icethetics, especially the lighthouse ones. Looking foward to the unveiling.

The Islanders third jersey is supposed to be retro this year. They are going back to the royal blue and the numbers are supposed to be orange like their inaugral jersey of 1972-1973. They wore this type of jersey versus Bufallo a couple of seasons ago and the fans loved it, which is why I think the team chose to go retro. The orange jersey is history even though personally I liked it.

I would love to see them adopt their retro jersey as the permenent jersey going forward in 2009-2010. I hate the current RBK Clown jersey
