The celebration of the Islanders 2016-17 season will begin well before the puck drops at Barclays Center for the team's home opener vs. the Anaheim Ducks on October 16.
The festivities will begin at 3:30 p.m. with a pregame fan fest on Barclays Center's plaza, where fans can meet Islanders Legends and enjoy live music from band The Zoo and DJ Razor. Familiar gameday faces like arena host Alyse Barker, Sparky the Dragon, and the Islanders Ice Crew will also be on hand for the party.
Fans will be able to shop the merchandise tent to start the season with some new Islanders gear, and with interactive games like Electronic Hockey, Mini Rink Zone and the Super Deker, they'll have the chance to get in some hockey action of their own. A few lucky fans in attendance could even receive ticket upgrades.
Barclays Center doors open at 5:00 p.m., and game time is 6:00 p.m.
