Team captains

The Islanders have had 11 team captains. Ed Westfall, the team's first, won the Bill Masterton Trophy during his Islanders captaincy; Michael Peca, who won the Frank J. Selke Trophy after the 2001–02 season, is the only other captain to have won an award during his term. Denis Potvin had the longest captaincy, from 1979 through 1987, during which he played 521 regular season games. Bryan McCabe served the shortest length of time, 56 regular season games. Bill Guerin, traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins mid-season in 2009, is the team's most recent captain. [20] As of August 2009, the Islanders team captain position remains vacant.

The Islanders did not assign a captain for the 1996–97 season after their previous captain, Patrick Flatley, was released from his contract. [21] The Islanders also didn't name a captain for the 2000–01 season.

Honored members

thumb Six New York Islanders players have been inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame, the most recent being Pat LaFontaine in 2003. Denis Potvin and Mike Bossy were the first Islanders to be inducted, in 1991. Besides the six players, two team builders have been inducted. Bill Torrey and Al Arbour were both inducted in 1995 and 1996, respectively. All six of these players, plus Bob Bourne have been inducted into the Islanders' Hall of Fame.

The Islanders' organization also honors individuals by retiring the number they wore on their jersey. The same six players that were inducted into the Hall of Fame have had their numbers retired in Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, meaning that nobody can ever use that number again while playing for the Islanders. Each player with a retired number has their own banner that hangs in the rafters at the Coliseum. There is are two other banners hanging with the retired numbers. One is for Al Arbour in recognition of the 1500 games he coached for the Islanders. The other banner is for Bill Torrey, who held the title of General manager, Vice president, President, and Chairman of the Board for the Islanders organization from 1972 through 1992. Torrey's banner features the words "The Architect" and a bowtie, which was his trademark, in place of a number.
