NY Islanders Coming to town in Sept 09

There was a story in the Saturday Star Phoenix today about the struggling both on and off the ice, Islanders coming to Saskatoon in September for training camp. It is no secret that the team is in an unpleasant situation with needing a new arena and lack of fan support. Nothing is official yet but Garth Snow should be arriving in town to announce the deal. The word is the Islanders will have 2 preseason games in Saskatoon with Calgary and Edmonton. Lots of autographs chances! Also, Saskatoon will be hosting the 2010 World Junior Tournament in December. Saskatoon will respond in a positive way for the Islanders, they have huge Saskatchewan ties.
