On the original logo, the "Y" hockey stick has three orange stripes on the shaft with the puck situated to the right of the stick blade. In 1998, when the team returned to a more traditional sweater they added four diagonal stripes on the right shoulder celebrating the four consecutive Stanley Cups the franchise won from 1980-83.

In 2008, the team modified this use of stripes by adding a fourth orange stripe to the shaft, once again paying homage to the Islanders dynasty.

When the team a new third jersey for the 2018-19 season, they also introduced a new "NY" crest which included a new location for the four stripes, on the stick tape.

What will happen to the four stripes if and when the Islanders win a fifth Stanley Cup?

Let's hope we soon get to find out.
