will be meeting fans and signing autographs at the New York Islanders Team Store located at the Sunrise Mall in Massapequa on November 1st from 6:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.
“I’m really excited,” said Gillies. “I get to meet some of our awesome fans that have been so supportive of the team and me.”
The New York Islanders forward is appreciative of his fans and has made an effort to be accessible to them.
“Since joining the Islanders last season, Trevor has always made the effort to interact with the fans,” said Ann Rina, the Community Relations Manager of the New York Islanders. Trevor Gillies
was signed to the Isles in January and has become an explosive player who maintains a dominating presence on the ice.
“This appearance will give fans the opportunity to meet the new Islanders forward away from the game,” said Rina.
Gillies’ and other future Islander appearances hope to create a personal connection between the team and the community.
“It’s very important for members of the team to get out into the community,” said Rina. “The signings we do at the team store is one avenue that allows the opportunity for the players to meet their fans that come out to the Coliseum on a nightly basis.”
In addition to meeting Trevor Gillies
, The New York Islander Team Store will be featuring great deals on team merchandise including authentic jerseys, t-shirts and other team gear.
The New York Islanders organization including Gillies expects the event to be a success.
“I’m looking forward to it,” said Gillies. “It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
