NY Islanders moving to Brooklyn Barclays Center in 2015
The Islanders are coming to Brooklyn.
Arena and team officials will announce later today that Long Islandís struggling NHL franchise will move to the Barclays Center by 2015 at the latest, sources close to the deal told The Post.
The Islanders, who won four consecutive Stanley Cups between 1980 and 1983, will keep their name at the insistence of NHL officials.
Borough leaders, Islanders owner Charles Wang and arena managers, eager to score a second major tenant for Barclays, joining the NBA's Nets, had no problems with that demand.
