The New York Islanders‘ first season at the Barclays Center has been anything but ideal.
Sportsnet’s Damien Cox reported on the Headlines segment during Hockey Night in Canada that the NHL is in the process of trying to install a new dehumidification system. This would be a short-term solution to a long-term problem, according to Cox.
Islanders players have not been shy about criticizing the quality of the ice. Earlier this week following a win over the Hurricanes Kyle Okposo described it as “awful” and said players can’t have it like that.
“It’s got to change,” added Okposo, a pending unrestricted free agent. “It’s got to be better than that.”
