The last of four 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’ forward Clark Gillies.
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), Denis Potvin (Nov. 29), Bob Nyström (Dec. 6), and Clark Gillies (Dec. 13).
Considered by many as the heart and soul of the Islanders’ 1970s and 1980s teams, Gillies was a four-time Stanley Cup winner with the Islanders from 1980 to 1983. He was a two-time NHL First Team All-Star in the late 1970s.
