The Fisherman is back -- albeit for one night only.

As part of the Islanders' season-long celebration of their final season at Nassau Coliseum, the team will wear special jerseys during warm-ups on Feb. 3 against the Florida Panthers. Those jerseys will feature the old "fisherman" logo that made its debut during the 1995-96 season and was discontinued after the 1996-97 season.

The Islanders are auctioning the jerseys off in the weeks leading up to the game, with proceeds going to the Islanders' Children Foundation. Fans can bid on the jerseys until Jan. 27. Each jersey will be autographed and comes with two tickets to the Feb. 3 game.

As of Saturday afternoon, goalie Jaroslav Halak's jersey had the highest bid at $600.
