The first of three Islanders Mini Lockers were distributed in conjunction with this Saturday night’s Islanders Tradition on Ice game. This Saturday’s game pays tribute to former Islanders’ goalie Billy Smith.
For each Tradition on Ice game, a limited number of Islanders Mini Locker collectibles were available with the purchase of tickets on islanders.nhl.com. The series features Billy Smith (Nov. 22), Bob Nyström (Dec. 6), and Clark Gillies (Dec. 13).
Smith was the Conn Smythe Trophy winner as the playoff’s most valuable player when the Islanders won the Stanley Cup in 1983. He was a four-time Stanley Cup winner during the Islanders’ dynasty from 1980 to 1983.
