The Islanders are one of New York's three professional hockey teams. 

Until 2015, Nassau County was home to one of New York's professional hockey teams, the Islanders. The team was based in Uniondale, with the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum as their home arena, but moved to The Barclay's Center in Brooklyn as of the 2015-16 season. The Islanders maintain a rivalry with New York's other professional hockey team, the Rangers, which is often referred to as the "Battle of New York." 

Luckily for Long Islanders who love to play hockey, there are a handful of youth and adult leagues scattered throughout the region. Indoor and outdoor, seasonal or year-round, ice or roller hockey...Long Island has it all.  Leagues range in skill from recreational to advanced.

Whether you're looking for a youth hockey league or an adult recreation league, Long Island has it.
