Yormark: Brooklyn Barclays Center will have ice rink

Could Brooklyn be an option for the Islanders?

It appears so according to Brett Yormark, CEO of the Barclays Center of Brooklyn. In a written statement to Newsday via email, Yormark said:

"The Barclays Center will have an ice rink that can support professional hockey. Due to the venue's design, the capacity for hockey would be a few thousand seats less than for basketball. While we hope to explore hockey opportunities in the future, our primary focus at the moment is to build the best  sports and entertainment venue in the world."
