This is a great way for our fans to see how easy the commute is to this world class facility in Brooklyn, the friendly staff that awaits them as they walk through the entrance, and the numerous amenities that only Barclays Center offers.”  

“Last year’s inaugural Islanders game at Barclays Center proved that Brooklynites are excited about NHL hockey coming to the borough,” Barclays Center CEO Brett Yormark said. “We are thrilled to give Brooklyn another sneak peak at its future hometown NHL team and are committed to growing its fan base, building its brand, and making the team a big part of the community. Barclays Center offers great access for our guests via the Long Island Rail Road, subways, and buses and we are looking forward to another big crowd at the game en route to the Islanders’ full-time move to Brooklyn.”
