The second 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’ 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), Denis Potvin (Nov. 29), Bob Nyström (Dec. 6), and Clark Gillies (Dec. 13).
Potvin was a three-time Norris Trophy winner as the NHL’s best defenceman. He won four consecutive Stanley Cup titles with the Islanders from 1980 to 1983. He then became an honoured member of the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1991.
