The 2011–12 New York Islanders season was the 40th season for the National Hockey League franchise that was established on June 6, 1972.[1] The team failed to qualify for the post-season for the fifth straight season.

Off-seasonEdit

At the 2011 NHL Entry draft, the Islanders selected playmaking center Ryan Strome from the Niagara Ice Dogs.

On July 1, 2011, the Islanders signed Marty Reasoner.

On August 1, 2011, a public referendum was held in Nassau County to authorize $400 million for a new coliseum as a home to the Islanders, a minor-league ballpark, and other economic development projects. The plan was rejected by the voters, thus causing speculation that after the 2014–15 season, the Islanders may be moving. [2]

Pre-seasonEdit

On June 30, 2011, the Islanders announced that they will play five pre-season games including two games each against the Bruins and Devils, and the other one against the Flames. The Islanders' final game of the pre-season, which is against the Bruins, will take place at the Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, Connecticut. [3]

Defenceman Mark Streit is named team captain, following Doug Weight's retirement.

Regular seasonEdit

PlayoffsEdit

The Islanders attempted to qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time since the 2006–07 season, but failed to do so for the fifth straight season.
