The club’s story begins in the year 1972. It was in the list of newly formed teams of the expansion of the National Hockey League, along with several other teams. The club’s name and brand identity refers to the place where it was founded and stays today – the Long Island.
1972 – 1995
The initial brand emblem had the blue and white shades. It showed the stylized image of The Long Island in the center of the logo. Over it, we can see the white hockey club and the shorting ‘NY’. The team name was placed below in the circle, and it had the orange sans-serif typeface.
1995 – 1997
The next logotype was rather the experimental one. It represented the angry hockey player in the blue coat, who held the club in his hands. Near him, there was the team name of the strong angular font. Also, we can mention some little details, such as the hockey gates on the background and the wavy lines below.
1997 – 2010
The 1997 logo features the original circle, but this time it had the black-and-blue shades and the contour.
2010 – 2017
Another logotype was something middle between the very first variant and the 1997 version. It still had the orange outline, but the blue color was returned instead of the black one.
2017 – today
The 2017 brand mark has the similar elements to the previous logos, but it is a bit enlarged and the contour is now inside the blue circle.
The original helmet design was primarily blue (or white for the blue variations of the uniform, which were usually away colors). In 1998, the team insignia was printed on the side of the helmet. The latest designs have the glass board along with the already mentioned features.
Originally, the uniform was white or blue with occasional strips of the opposite color and the brand mark in the center. Throughout the time, we can see the trend to enlarge the uniform and make its colors darker. The modern editions of the uniform are black, white or blue jerseys and pants with the multicolored strips on them.
