Islanders personally distribute executive suiteholder tickets

Tuesday wasn't just another day for the Islanders. Following practice, they were given the chance to meet some of the most loyal Islanders fans one-on-one the executive suite ticket holders. This afternoon each member of the 28-man roster hand-delivered a package of season tickets to the owner of each suite at the Nassau Coliseum.

Michael Dowling, CEO of the North Shore LIJ Health System in Great Neck, was elated to see Islanders captain Alexei Yashin knocking on his office door and thanking him for his extraordinary support of the Islanders.

"I think it's fantastic to see Alexei delivering the tickets," said Dowling. "To have him visit is a great statement. We are loyal Islander fans here and this is great."

Yashin and the rest of the players, who were sent all across Long Island, not only delivered tickets but hung around to meet employees and customers, signing autographs until everyone had one for the family and friends.

"We appreciate the people who watch the Islanders and make the commitment to buy a suite because they believe it is good for their business," said Yashin. "We're happy to do it."
