After the Islanders acquired Jean-Gabriel Pageau at the NHL trade deadline in February and then signed him to a contract extension, the newest member of the organization spoke glowingly of his new home. The comments immediately endeared him to Islanders fans.
Since then, the love affair has only grown as Pageau has ingrained himself into the Islanders’ culture even more. During the Qualifying Round series with the Florida Panthers, Pageau discussed how lucky he felt to be part of the “Islanders brotherhood.”
He then proceeded to take twitter by storm over the weekend with his WWE-like entrance during the team ping pong tournament the players were holding inside their hotel. Pageau was the “Boys of the Isle” ping pong champion by the end of Saturday.
