TRADITION REIGNS

The New York Islanders announced today that the franchise will host an Alumni Weekend each season at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. This weekend's "Core of the Four" celebration, which honors the men who were on all four Islanders Stanley Cup teams from 1980-83, is the first of the franchise's annual Alumni Weekends where all Islanders Alumni will be welcomed home.

"The link between a major professional sports team and its tradition is vital," said Islanders owner Charles Wang. "Nowhere is this more important than on Long Island, where we had the privilege of watching one of the most dominant teams in the history of the National Hockey League. This weekend honoring the 25th anniversary of the Islanders dynasty is going to be very special, but it doesn't signal the end of acknowledging our franchise's incredibly rich tradition. We will always take time to celebrate the people who created the Islanders' legacy."

This weekend's celebration included:
 
The members of the Islanders Hall of Fame are Bill Torrey, Al Arbour, Denis Potvin, Mike Bossy, Billy Smith, Bryan Trottier, Bobby Nystrom, Clark Gillies and Bob Bourne. Future honorees will be inducted at Islanders Hall of Fame games on Alumni weekends, which will also include reunions of popular Islanders teams, including the 1992-93 team that upset the two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins and advanced to the conference finals.

"No matter how many championships you have won, any proud major professional sports franchise will always celebrate its tradition," said Islanders general manager Garth Snow. "When you have the history that the New York Islanders have, you never, ever forget. The "Core of the Four" event is just the start. We look forward to taking one weekend each season to join our fans in remembering that We're All Islanders.'"
