In support of the illustrious history of the team, the New York Islanders name and logo will remain unchanged.

This has been a long journey for the Islanders family starting with our loyal fans, sponsors, and employees. I want to personally thank them for their patience, loyalty, and support.

They may need to add Kings and Queens counties to the logo since the geographical representation on the logo looks like it ends at the Nassau County border. At least that is what I have been shown when the logo overlayed with a geographical map.
