There may have been a possible leak for the new third jersey the New York Islanders will be wearing this season. Right now it looks awful.
By Michael Iuzzini
By now New York Islanders fans have seen the leaked photo of a dull black and white alternate jersey hanging up with the similar patch that has been worn by the successful fan favorite stadium series uniform the past two seasons.
Hopefully this is just a practice jersey, because there is nothing special about this lifeless sweater.
Obviously the marketing group is aiming in merging the Brooklyn Nets and Isles, as now both teams call the Barclays Center home.
There is a grand opportunity for the Islanders to not only come out and be the contenders that Islander nation is expecting of them, but to finally rid themselves of being that team that still to this day can’t escape the Gorton Fisherman years.

This is not at all the answer in putting the Isles on the marketing map to increase sales.
Fingers crossed that this is just a practice jersey and not another failed marketing attempt with the hopes of big sales as the team begins their life in Brooklyn.
We will all know the answer on September 21st when the team officially unveils the new third jersey.
