NEW YORK — The New York Isles are known for their colorful jerseys, and they might not have any trouble selling them to the general public.
A team spokesperson said Thursday that the name for the team’s jersey, “The Isles,” will be revealed Friday, in advance of the team taking the ice at Nassau Coliseum for its first game of the preseason.
The jersey will be on sale for $60 at the Nassau County Board of Elections, the spokesperson said.
Ladd said Thursday on a podcast that the Isles’ name is something he has been thinking about for a long time.
“It’s a lot of fun,” Ladd said.
“I have been thinking a lot about it.
I was going to be the guy who did the jersey design, and now that I’ve got my team name, I think it would be a fun name.
I think the name is going to do some good.”
The Isles are playing their first preseason game on Friday.
They will wear their “T” jerseys and will wear the logo of their sponsor, HP, on their helmets.
The Isles have been in the NHL for 15 years and were the NHL’s final expansion team in 2006.
