Ilya Sorokin, The Fisherman

ELMONT, NY–Some fans have been waiting quite some time to see the New York Islanders don the Fisherman jerseys again after the organization banished them to the sun following the 1996-1997 season. Others wish that wait time could be extended 1,000 more years.

Whether you are a fan of the Fisherman Reverse Retro or not, the wait is now over, as the New York Islanders hit the ice for warmup wearing their newest sweaters:

The Islanders also had some cool on-ice graphic going on before the contest as well:

Dec. 23 vs. Florida Panthers
Dec. 27 vs. Pittsburgh Penguins
Jan. 12 vs. Minnesota Wild
Jan. 21 vs. Carolina Hurricanes
Jan. 28 vs. Vegas Golden Knights
