STEVE WEBB TO LEAD YOUTH HOCKEY INITIATIVES
Fan favorite named Islanders Director of Grass Roots Hockey Programs

Steve Webb, an Islanders fan favorite for eight seasons, is returning to the organization as its Director of Grass Roots Hockey Programs.

"The Islanders are determined to develop the best youth hockey progams in the metropolitan area and, just as importantly, assist children that want to be hockey players but may not have the resources to fulfill their dreams," said Islanders Senior Vice President Mike Milbury. "There isn't a better person to lead us than Steve Webb, a New York Islander and Long Islander through and through. This is a tremendous responsibility for Steve, but I'm sure he will attack it with the same passion and intensity that he did for us as a player."

In his new role, the 31-year old Webb will create youth hockey development programs out of Islanders Iceworks in Syosset that will bring the best out of youngsters from across Long Island. While the Islanders plan to send another team from China to this year's Bell Capital Cup, the prestigious youth tournament in Ottawa, the franchise under Webb's direction will also host a team from Long Island.

"So many people played an important role in helping me reach my goal of becoming a player in the National Hockey League," said Webb, who played 321 NHL games, all but five with the Islanders. "It's a privilege for me to have this opportunity to honor my mentors by developing these Islanders grass-roots hockey programs for the children of Long Island. Over the next few months, there will be several announcements about our plans to continue the Islanders' legacy of building hockey on the Island. The work has already begun."
