New York Islanders GM Lou Lamoriello

The 2019-20 season may be over for the New York Islanders, but the team and general manager Lou Lamoriello took a moment to thank the fans for their support on Friday.

In an open letter to fans, Lamoriello thanked them for their continued support through the Islanders extended run in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. This season marked the first time since 1993 that they reached the Eastern Conference Finals.

“Everyone in your Islanders organization thanks you for your unwavering support during this unprecedented season,” Lou Lamoriello wrote. “The 2019-20 hockey season was a long, however most gratifying journey. We began with training camp in September, the ground-breaking press conference at Belmont Park (UBS Arena) and culminated this past week with so many of you welcoming the team home from the Stanley Cup Playoffs.”

Islanders fans gathered at Republic Airport in Farmingdale last Friday to welcome the team back from Edmonton. NYI Hockey Now was one of two local outlets to cover the return.

The Islanders general manager assured fans that his staff had begun preparing for the 2020-21 season.

“This past season was another step in the right direction,” Lou Lamoriello later wrote. “High standards have been set for the New York Islanders and we will continue to work at making sure they are met each and every day.”

The Islanders have advanced in the postseason in both years that Lamoriello has been general manager. He was named general manager of the year on September 12.
