On Tuesday the Islanders announced the details for their annual draft party at the Nassau Coliseum, but with the Rangers and Devils in the midst of an Eastern Conference Finals series some Islander fans weren’t too happy to be thinking about the draft as their division rivals battled for a chance to compete for the cup.

We understand our fans’ frustration and are disappointed in the team’s performance on the ice. The New York Islanders thrive on the support of the fans, which is why we’ll continue to hold events like the Draft Party. As an organization, we will not stop having these events because they give Islanders fans the opportunity to show your support, share your passion with friends and family and enjoy a fun experience with your favorite team.Thanks to reader sportsfan1970 for the heads up.
