The New York Islanders released their alternate jerseys today. They were the exact same ones that were leaked a couple of weeks ago.

All summer long, teams were releasing their third jerseys. New York Islanders fans were anxious to see how there’s would come out after numerous leaks, renderings and anything else under the sun that came out in the last few months.

Almost every team knocked their alternate out of the park. The Sharks, Blues, Coyotes, and Ducks all released incredible third uniforms. Today, the New York Islanders revealed there.

Take a look at the promo video the Islanders released their newest uniforms:

These jerseys are the exact one that leaked a few weeks ago. So it’s not utterly surprising that these are the thirds. As far as the jerseys go for themselves they are ultimately pretty underwhelming.

They’re definitely the best alternates they’ve had since they wore the “original blue” look. Yet, they leave much to be desired as well.

The other teams I listed above, paid homage to retro jerseys from years past. The only thing that’s from the past is the four lines on the blade of the stick on the NY representing the four Stanley Cup wins.

They’re very mediocre. It was an extremely safe pick, but it’s too similar to the Stadium Series jerseys. When you have a blue, orange and teal color scheme with the fisherman logo in your team history’s and every other team is going with a “retro look” this specific design falls short.

An updated version of the fisherman is the way they should’ve went and the fact that we got a generic, updated version of the stadium series look from four years ago.
