NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Islanders and New Jersey Devils will play a preseason game at Barclays Center in September.
It will be the first NHL game ever played in Brooklyn, where the Islanders will move in 2015-16. The Islanders and Devils were slated to play at Barclays Center last preseason, but the entire exhibition schedule was erased due to the NHL lockout.
The Islanders, who have not made the postseason since 2006-07, hold the eighth and final postseason spot with 42 points entering Tuesday's action.
The game will be played Sept. 21. Barclays Center, home to the NBA's Brooklyn Nets, opened last year.
