The Islanders are moving to Brooklyn.
The Isles, who have been trying to get out of dilapidated Nassau Coliseum for years, have decided to move into the new Barclay's Center in Brooklyn. They have agreed to a 25-year lease.
"Hello Brooklyn!" Islanders owner Charles Wang said at a news conference this afternoon.
The Isles will finish their lease with Nassau County before moving west on Long Island for the 2015-16 season. They will share the arena with the Brooklyn Nets of the NBA.
"Our goal from the outset was to have the Islanders play in a local, world-class arena," Wang said. "We have achieved that goal."
