The New York Islanders have had numerous home jerseys over their 47-year history in the NHL. Let’s look at how they rank compared to each other.

Since their inception into the NHL in 1972, the New York Islanders have had 12 different home jerseys.

The New York Islanders have had their same, original logo on every one of their home jerseys except one (you know which one) and were all primarily white until the NHL changed their uniform rules in 2003 to where home teams had to wear their dark uniforms.

The color scheme of the New York Islanders home jerseys have mostly consisted of their original royal blue, orange, and white. However, the Islanders have changed the royal blue to navy blue for a few jerseys and have added colors, such as teal and gray to a couple of them.

Overall, the New York Islanders have been pretty consistent in the designs of their home jerseys. With the exception of just a few of their jerseys, the Islanders have made minor changes to their home jerseys over their history.

Now that you have a background on the history of the New York Islanders home jerseys, we can take a look at the rankings of the jerseys.

My rankings are based on how long the jerseys lasted, the success of the team while they wore the jerseys, and just my personal opinion of the jerseys.
