Islanders Unveil Outdoor Game Jersey
The Islanders released their jersey for the 2014 Coors Light Stadium Series\u2122
When the Islanders step out of the dugout and onto the ice at Yankee Stadium, New York’s most famous field, they’ll be sporting a sharp new look to commemorate the once-in-a-lifetime occasion.

Outfitted in a signature 2014 Coors Light Stadium Series New York™ jersey, the Islanders will wear a sleek, Islanders-blue sweater with a chrome, modern take on the Islanders traditional logo, as well as matching pants and new socks. Full-season ticket subscribers can now place their orders for the exclusive jersey that team captain John Tavares and the Islanders will wear. The jersey will become available to all fans on Black Friday, Nov. 29.  

“It’s sharp,” said Tavares, who recently modeled the jersey. “It’s going more for the modern look, which I think is a great idea, especially with so many teams going back to the retro. We’re going to look good when we go out there.”

The logo, which features the iconic NY lettering and hockey stick with four stripes for the franchise’s four Stanley Cups, was lifted from the team’s historic mark, enlarged and infused with a chrome border. Reebok, who designed the jersey with input from the NHL and members of the Islanders upper management, employed a new manufacturing process allowing the logo to be displayed as a hi-resolution image on the crest, which pops off the blue sweater. The logo is also featured on the custom hockey pants the Islanders will wear for the outdoor event.

“The logo stands out,” Casey Cizikas said. “That’s the main objective of the jersey. That’s what you want to see and that’s the most important part. It makes the jersey perfect.”

Another variation on the jersey is the white nameplate, with blue lettering, for players’ names – a tinge of vintage in an otherwise cutting-edge jersey.

“I love the nameplates with the white on the back,” Matt Martin said. “Our gloves have a little bit of white on them. It’s awesome with the chrome. The logo and the colors are bold. It’s going be a great jersey and I can’t wait to get my hands on them.”

While all the traditional Islanders colors are present on the jersey, the ratios have shifted. Islanders blue dominates the jersey, but the white shoulder area, nameplates, numbers and trim have a powerful presence on the sweater. Orange is used sparingly, much like the Islanders current jerseys, but at points of emphasis: the four stripes on the stick to highlight the four Stanley Cup championships, border player’s enlarged numbers and complete the sleeves, socks, pants and gloves.    

“The four bands definitely stand out more because there’s no other orange in the logo,” Martin said. “That game is going to be a lot of fun and it’s definitely nice to have something to remember it by.”

Make sure to get your commemorative jersey for this can’t-miss event.
