The New York Islanders are an ice hockey team that plays in the National Hockey League (NHL). They were a great team between 1980 and 1983, winning four Stanley Cups and a record 19 consecutive playoff series. After playing from 1972 to 2015 at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, New York, the team moved to Brooklyn and the Barclays Center starting with the 2015–16 season.
The Islanders plan to return to Nassau County in the near future. Construction on a new arena next to the Belmont Park horse racing track in Elmont, which borders Queens, is planned to start in 2018, with the team hoping to move in for the 2020–21 season.
