Many years ago, Charles Wang set forth an initiative to have the New York Islanders play at Yankee Stadium against the New York Rangers. At the time, the Islanders were not in the middle of a rebuild, but were not one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference either.
Therefore, like many other things that have happened on the island in recent years, the idea was eventually shot down.
Although he may not have gotten his beloved Lighthouse Project or new arena in Nassau County, one of Wang's visions will finally come true.
The New York Islanders will play against the New York Rangers at Yankee Stadium on January 29th, 2014.
