Islanders will remain at Barclays Center through at least 2018-19
The New York Islanders appear to have a temporary arena plan in place.
Co-owner Jon Ledecky confirmed the club will remain at Barclays Center in Brooklyn until at least the end of the 2018-19 season, according to Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post.
Additionally, the Islanders remain wholly committed to building a new arena at Belmont Park, which is just outside of New York City, as per a bid submitted in late September.
What happens after next season and prior to the opening of a new rink remains a bit of a mystery, but a move back to Long Island appears to be out of the question.
The Islanders have called Barclays Center home since 2015-16. Along with the long-term arena uncertainty, the team faces the prospect of losing franchise center John Tavares to unrestricted free agency next summer.
