The New York Islanders were founded in 1972 and are now a part of the Metropolitan Division. At the time, the team was going to be named “The Long Island Ducks” in reference to an Eastern Hockey League team that played from 1959 to 1973. Instead, the team chose the Islanders for their location on Long Island.

The Islanders, who won four straight Stanley Cups from 1980 to 1983, were based in Uniondale, New York, for their first 42 seasons. They spent the next six playing at Barclays Center in Brooklyn and Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale before moving to UBS Arena in Elmont, New York, in 2021, where they continue to play today. 

The team has yet to win another Cup title since 1983, but has stayed relatively competitive over the years, making it to the playoffs a total of 28 times in their 50 seasons. The team hit a slump in the late 90s and the late 2000s but became more competitive afterward. But after two seasons of disappointing postseason results (DNQ in 2022 and lost in the first round in 2023), the team is hoping to turn its luck around. 


Here is the full look at the New York Islanders 2023-2024 schedule. The schedule includes dates and times of games, as well as which networks will be broadcasting them live. Check it out below:


The Islanders have some strong players on their 2023-2024 roster, which gives fans hope that the team’s comeback is on its way. With a stellar goalie and a strong back line, the potential is there, as long as the team can come together and play as one unified part. And if standout Matthew Barzal and Bo Horvat can bring a consistent boost to the team.
