Islanders forwards Blake Comeau and Tim Jackman took time to visit the newest Islanders Team Store, located at the Westfield Sunrise Mall in Massapequa. Comeau and Jackman arrived well before the signing, so they could take part in a sit down interview with Islanders radio broadcaster Steve Mears. Mears asked both players about this season's young Islanders team and also about working hard in Bridgeport and the road that led both players to playing on Long Island.
After the interview, both players were available to meet more 150 fans. Comeau and Jackman signed autographs and took pictures.
"This was my first signing at the team store, said Jackman. "I had a great time meeting all the fans that came down to meet Blake and myself."
This signing marked Comeau's third visit to an Islanders team store.
"Anytime you can come out and meet with some of your biggest fans, it's nice," said Comeau. "The fans have welcomed me back into the Islanders lineup since returning from Bridgeport and I enjoy playing in front of them every home game."
