Islanders Debut Reverse Retro Jerseys

The Islanders wore their throwback threads for the first time this season

Party like it's 1998... to 2007.

The New York Islanders debuted their reverse retro jerseys on Saturday afternoon, skating out in their fresh navy blue jerseys, a nod to the Islanders teams of the late 90s and mid-2000s. 

So you'll be excused if you briefly mistook Anders Lee for Michael Peca, Jordan Eberle for Trent Hunter or Brock Nelson for Kenny Jonsson. 

Regardless, the kits looked super clean and sharp, with the orange popping off the navy blue base. The Islanders will wear these threads two more times this season, March 20 vs Philadelphia and April 6 vs Washington.

"I thought they were nice, we had a good game in them," Scott Mayfield said after their debut. "It's fun switching up the jerseys. We all enjoy it and it's fun trying something new."
