The Barclays Center is such a wonderful looking building, someone must have said that looks like a great place to play hockey in.

The New York Daily News is reporting that the NHL’s New York Islanders will be relocating to Brooklyn in 2015.

Islanders owner Charles Wang opened his press conference by saying “Hello Brooklyn.”

“It was our goal from day one to keep the Islanders in the local New York area,” Wang said. “We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to play in Barclays Center, a first class arena. This has been a long journey for the Islanders family starting with our loyal fans, sponsors, and employees. I want to personally thank them for their patience, loyalty, and support. I am excited about (Wednesday’s) announcement and I am looking forward to a long and successful future in Brooklyn.”

Wang said the Islanders entered a 25 year lease agreement to play at the Barclays Center.

Hello Brooklyn.

I guess the Rangers know how the Knicks feel now.
