The New York Islanders have reached an affiliation agreement with the Missouri Mavericks of the ECHL, who are based out of Independence, Missouri.
"The Mavericks are a highly-regarded organization with a high-end coaching staff that’s capable of developing players," Islanders GM Garth Snow said. The Mavericks are entering their seventh season in franchise history, and are led by General Manager Brent Thiessen and Head Coach Richard Matvichuk. Matvichuck played 14 NHL seasons mostly with the Dallas Stars, winning the Stanley Cup in 1999. Before joining the ECHL in 2014-15, the Mavericks competed in the now-defunct CHL and made the playoffs in five of their six seasons. They also won the Franchise of the Year award four consecutive seasons (2011-12 to 2013-2014). Said owner Lamar Hunt, Jr., "Our new affiliation with the Islanders includes integration into their scouting system, strength and conditioning program, and training camps." Jun 12 - 11:38 PM

At least one aspect of the New York Islanders will remain on Long Island, at the Cantiague Park Ice Facility in Hicksville to be exact.

Cantiague Park will be run as part of a public-private partnership, which will help generate revenue back into the community. "This public-private partnership with the Islanders will provide an opportunity for fans to enjoy open practices, scrimmages and autographs sessions while improving the Cantiague Park Ice Facility for our residents," Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano said. The 10-year deal will see Nassau County receive at least $200K annually, with escalators raising the sum to potentially $250K per. "Taxpayers will share in revenue derived from licensee fees, ice rentals and sponsorships," per the release. "The facility will remain open for public-use." Overall, the Islanders will pump $5.1M into the facility, partly in an effort to make it their new business offices as well, with $4.6M already deposited by Principal Owner Charles Wang.

With their move to Brooklyn, it looks like the New York Islanders will be in need of a new radio broadcast station.

The Islanders have been on 88.7 FM WRHU Radio Hofstra University the last five seasons with a simulcast on 103.9 FM LI News Radio the last three seasons. While play-by-play announcer Chris King has done a superb job, CEO Brett Yormark has made it known that the Isles need and want a bigger broadcast. Problems is, the Rangers are already on ESPN New York, and the New Jersey Devils are on WFAN. This means the Islanders are already out on the two biggest and best options not only for New York, but for the country because New York boasts the strongest national signals. As has been the hallmark of the Islanders' success since GM Garth Snow took over, ingenuity may have to win the day.

Garth Snow was reportedly extremely aggressive in courting top-notch free-agents in the opening of this year's free agent interviewing period which kicked off Wednesday at midnight.

According to Arthur Staple of Newsday, Snow was working the phones starting at 12:01am and apparently reached out to former Rangers center Brad Richards and Pens' defenseman Matt Niskanen. Snow and the Isles gave up their first round pick of 2015 to the Buffalo Sabres in the Thomas Vanek trade, and are determined not to cede a lottery pick such as Connor McDavid or Jack Eichel.

Islanders general manager Garth Snow doesn't expect his team to be much different next season.

The Isles have a solid core, and he's very happy with it. "I don't think there will be too many changes," Snow said. "We want to continue down the road we started. We're just as excited about the prospects we have as the team that played this season. We've had some really good drafts and we have a prospect pool we like, not just some of the players at Bridgeport. It bodes well for the future." The team will continue to build from within but will keep an open mind with regards to trades and free agency.

Garth Snow has been named the Islanders GM after Neil Smith was fired.

This is a rather bizarre move, as Snow went from an active player on Monday to the general manager position. It is hard to figure out what is going on in New York, as Pat LaFontaine also resigned amidst the controversy. Owner Charles Wang has said that the team will be run as a committee, something that Smith did not believe in. It should be an interesting summer on Long Island.

Islanders activated Garth Snow off injured reserve tonight.

Garth Snow, out since early January with a pair of sprained knees suffered in a goal-mouth pile, looked strong in an AHL start Saturday night.

He allowed one only goal on 30 shots in a rehab start for Bridgeport and could be back in Long Island by the middle of the week.

Islander backup goalie Garth Snow began his comeback from sprains to both knees last night when he started for Bridgeport of the AHL on a conditioning stint.

Garth Snow will miss the next 3-4 weeks with MCL sprains in both knees.

Snow has a Grade 2 sprain of his right knee and a Grade 1 (mild) sprain of his left knee, the club announced Thursday. With Rick DiPietro also sidelined, the Islanders will go with Wade Dubieleweicz as their netminder until DiPietro is able to return. Get Snow out of your lineup as quick as you can.

Garth Snow left last night's game against the Panthers with just 8.5 seconds left in regulation time with a strained left MCL.

He sustained the injury after he was run over by teammate Alexei Zhitnik and Florida forward Nathan Horton. Snow will be re-evaluated today. If he is unable to play Friday against Carolina, and Rick DiPietro is not ready to return to action, Wade Dubielewicz, who was recalled Monday from Bridgeport and earned last night's victory despite playing 2:24 and making just three saves, will start.

Garth Snow left tonight's game with a leg injury.

Snow was removed from the game with just under 10 seconds left in regulation time due to a leg injury. Wade Dubielewicz came in relief and notched the victory as the Islanders won the game in overtime. With Rick DiPietro already on the shelf, New York can ill afford to lose Snow for an extended period of time. More on the injury as we get it.
