Islanders Draft Party Nearing Record Numbers

Over 17,500 people have reserved passes for tonight’s Islanders Draft Party at Nassau Coliseum.

The event will feature attractions such as a Ferris Wheel, exclusive locker room tours, I.C.E. Tour inflatable games, street hockey contests and video game stations, as well as a live feed on the scoreboard of the NHL Draft from Pittsburgh starting at 7 p.m. Current Islanders players such as John Tavares, Matt Moulson and Matt Martin, along with a number of top prospects will also be in attendance.

Of course, all eyes will be focused on the scoreboard when the Islanders announce who they will select with the fourth overall pick.

In 2009, when the Islanders had the No. 1 overall pick, 19,314 passes were reserved for the event. That year, the Islanders selected John Tavares, as the fans at Nassau Coliseum cheered and confetti rained down from the ceiling. This year’s event is less than 2,000 tickets away from 2009’s high-water mark, something Islanders Senior Vice President of Marketing & Sales Paul Lancey attributes to the young talent in the team’s system and the direction the club is headed.

“I think everybody sees where the team is going and wants to be on board because they think this is going to be a breakout year,” Lancey said.

Don’t miss your chance to be part of the biggest Islanders event of the summer. Passes are free, but each individual can reserve up to eight. Doors for the party open at 5:30 p.m. Prior to the Draft Party, the American Red Cross is hosting blood drive. Fans can donate in the Coliseum’s exhibition hall anytime between noon and 8 p.m.
