Send in entries about your favorite game from the first half of the season or your earliest hockey memory
The Islanders new game program for the 2007-08 season, ISLANDERS ILLUSTRATED, is distributed free of charge at a select number of home games throughout the season. Here's how Islanders fans can participate!
Each edition will feature not just content produced within the hallowed walls of the Nassau Coliseum executive offices, but will also include contributions from you, the fans. The unique section will be known as "Memoirs Of An Islanders Fan" and will include stories written solely by the fans.
For the next edition, set for distribution at Town of Hempstead Night against the Philadelphia Flyers on January 19, we're asking fans to email us their favorite Islanders moment from the first half of the season. From Al Arbour night to Bill Guerin's game-winner in overtime against New Jersey with time winding down, there were plenty of exciting moments from the first half of the 2007-08 season.
Also, for Long Island Youth Hockey Fest on January 21 when the Islanders host Carolina we're asking fans to submit entries about their earliest hockey memories. Whether it was playing on a pond or at a local rink, we want you to take us back to your earliest hockey roots.
Submissions for Town of Hempstead and Long Island Youth Hockey Fest stories are due by Tuesday, January 8.
Throughout the season, check back to newyorkislanders.com for a new topic of discussion for another edition of "Memoirs of an Islanders Fan."
