The Islanders' season may be over but that doesn’t mean fans need to stop supporting their team.

Given that hockey is synonymous with wintertime; most items previously produced have been intended for the colder months. However, this is slightly inconvenient for Long Island fans during the hot summer months.

“Many Long Islanders spend their summer days outdoors and other outdoor amusements, so we want them to be able to sport their blue and orange wherever they go,” Islanders Director of Retail Operations, Terry Goldstein said. “This summer, fans can coordinate an entire family day at the beach with an Islanders theme if they wanted.”

That is why the Islanders Team Store is now offering a wide array of brand new summer apparel, accessories and other officially licensed team gear designed specifically for the offseason

Beachgoers can now sport a New York Islanders beach bag, visor or board shorts as they toss around a beach ball designed with the team’s logo.

For those looking for that perfect Father’s Day gift, the team store has men’s athletic shorts and flip flops, along with an Islanders tailgate table and bean bag toss game to enhance that summer fun.

Ladies can continue supporting the Islanders throughout the summer in the all new tie-die or pink and white t-shirts. For those who prefer to cover up from those summer rays, the team store is also offering a new light weight pink and white long sleeve shirt with a hood.

An item that will look good year round is the official New York Islanders draft hat which is available exclusively at the Islanders Team Store. The flex-fit style hat is embroidered with a large off-centered New York Islanders logo on the front and a smaller team logo on the back.

“This will be the hat that each newly drafted Islander will put on when their name is called at the draft” Goldstein said. “Fans have the chance to own the same hat that future Islanders will be wearing.”

The 2012 NHL Draft will take place June 22-23 at CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The New York Islanders are hosting a draft party which features player appearances, a live Draft stream, exclusive interviews and the annual year-end blowout merchandise sale. The event will take place June 22 at 5:30 p.m. at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

So while fans wait for the Islanders to hit the ice again in October, they can gear up for a summer and represent the team with the new merchandise offered for the ultimate year-round fans.

The Islanders Team Store is open Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
