The Islanders will play a preseason game at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Sept. 21, their first game in the team’s future home.

Tickets for the game go on sale April 17 at 10 a.m.

The Isles and Devils meet that night, as the two teams had planned to play this past Oct. 2 at Barclays Center before the NHL’s four-month lockout killed the entire preseason schedule.

On Oct. 24, the Islanders announced that they will move to Barclays Center beginning in the 2015-16 season. The team’s lease at Nassau Coliseum expires after the 2014-15 season.
