Long Island left an impression on Robin Lehner and now he has the ink to commemorate it.

The Chicago Blackhawks goalie, who spent last season with the New York Islanders and posted a career best 25 wins and 2.13 goals against average, got a tattoo of an outline of a map of Long Island on the side of his neck.

Tweet from @RobinLehner: Forever imprinted a place that means the world to me and Where I started my new journey. Tribute to a great place filled with great people. Will forever love the island. Chicago has followed suit.

It was with the Islanders that Lehner revealed his struggles with mental health and substance abuse.

After his career season he was awarded the Masterton Trophy for perseverance and dedication to hockey.

Lehner signed with the Blackhawks this offseason, but said he will always have affection for New York and the Islanders as the start of his "new journey."
