One year after stepping aside as general manager of the Islanders to serve as senior vice-president in marketing, Mike Milbury on Tuesday announced his resignation from his full-time position in the organization.
Although Milbury will remain as an advisor to owner Charles Wang on the Project Hope youth hockey program they began two years ago in China, his move effectively ends his 12-year relationship with the Isles in terms of any major decision-making role. Milbury also served as coach three times and survived through four sets of owners.

“Charles gave me the opportunity of a new challenge for the last 18 months and I enjoyed every minute of it,” Milbury said this afternoon. “I’m very proud of our staff and the strides we made last season in corporate sales, customer service and community relations. Although it’s time for something different for me, I appreciate the challenge of continuing the work we started with Project Hope and the Children’s Foundation, among other projects.”
