The Islanders and the Islanders Community Events (I.C.E) Tour
will open the doors to the Nassau Coliseum this Saturday morning, August 9th, and fans will be introduced to Doug Weight and Josh Bailey
-- two of the newest members of the Islanders family. Weight joined the Islanders in July after spending last season in Anaheim, where he had 10 goals and 15 assists for 25 points in 67 games. He needs 31 points to reach the magical 1,000 point plateau in his career. Bailey was the Islanders 1st round pick in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft after posting 96 points in 67 games last season for Windsor Spitfires of the OHL.

Doors open to the Coliseum at 10:00 AM. Fans will also have the opportunity to look at seats for season and partial plan tickets for the upcoming 2008-09 season. Any fan that purchases a full or partial plan on Saturday morning will have the opportunity to have an exclusive lunch with Doug and Josh that very same day at the Coliseum. Also, for one day only, any fan who purchases a ticket plan at the open house will receive a free gas card worth up to $100 in value.
This season the Islanders are offering unprecedented choice and flexibility with ticket plans.
For information on ticket plans call an Islanders Ticket Executive at 1-800-882-ISLES. Plans start as low as $19 a seat, per game for four games and up.
As part of the Re/Max Open House, Doug and Josh will field questions from a select three-person panel. The panel will consist of members from Islander Mania and the NYI Blog Box. Weight and Bailey will also take questions from fans in the crowd. This portion of the open house is available to all fans in attendance.
In April of this year the Islanders made a commitment to be engaging, accessible and fan-friendly.
The I.C.E (Islanders Community Events) Tour has made stops all across Long Island this summer and this is sixth open house at the Nassau Coliseum since April. On Saturday morning, the I.C.E. Tour's RV and inflatable and interactive games will be set up on the arena floor for all to enjoy. All kids in attendance will receive a free Islanders street hockey stick as the Islanders work hard to grow the great game of hockey on Long Island one household at a time by putting a 'Goal in Every Driveway'.
The open house starts at 10:00 AM and fans should enter through the Coliseum's Box Office on the Marriott side of the building. The open house is scheduled to run until 12pm.
