I know the last thing anyone wants to do right now is cover themselves in Islanders-related paraphernalia, but please don’t forget the weekend sale going on at Gameday Depot for all of our Lighthouse Hockey apparel.

If you were thinking about buying a shirt for yourself or someone else, do it now. And think of the donations. Thank you.

Now, on to the "news:"
