Islanders Logo (via sportslogos.net)
The Islanders are moving to Brooklyn next season, and the arena they're moving to has filed for trademarks on new logos – and brand new colors – the team is expected to use for their alternate jerseys.The New York Islanders aren't about to give up their franchise's name when the team moves to Brooklyn next season. However, it looks as if the team will have a third jersey that fits in with the colors of the NBA's Brooklyn Nets – and that doesn't include "Islanders" on it. As evidence, consider that the Barclays Center has recently applied for trademarks on new logos, both of which only use the phrase "Brooklyn Hockey", while using a black-and-white that match the Nets' uniforms: (Via The Sporting News and Nets Daily)

Barclays CEO Michael Yormark said in 2013 the team would have an alternate jersey, and these latest trademarks suggest the team has a good idea of the brand it intends to build – even if it has to be built around the Islanders' famous name and colors.
