The full regular season schedule is set to be announced on Thursday.

The Islanders announced last week that they will return to the renovated Nassau Coliseum to play a preseason game, marking the team’s first time back since leaving two years ago. The exhibition game is scheduled for Sept. 17 at 1 p.m. against the Flyers.
