The New York Islanders will be moving into their new home this season. It was a rocky road for many years but finally, the team will have a modern state-of-the-art building for hockey in the year 2021.
Today, the Islanders released a hype video with the captions “New home, same family.” and it appears that they released the patch that will be worn for the 2021-2022 season, the first year at UBS Arena.
Throughout the video, there is a logo that flashes on the screen and is used as a background seemingly to represent the move to Belmont. Through this screenshot, our guys over at Isles Fix look like they’ve captured what the patch will look like:
One can safely assume that they will wear this patch somewhere on the jersey for the 2021-2022 season. Either on the shoulder or the chest seems to make the most sense here. Most recently, they wore a patch for Charles Wang, that was featured on their chest.

For their last season at the Nassau Coliseum, the Islanders wore a patch on their shoulder, and for the first year in Brooklyn, they did the same. Here’s a look at the 2015-2016 patch and then the 2014-2015 patch.

Keep an eye out on an official announcement in the coming days before the season starts but I’m fairly certain that this all but confirms an inaugural season patch is coming on the jerseys this year.
