If Lou Lamoriello wants to stay with the New York Islanders, it appears that the organization has mutual interest in bringing him back. The 80-year-old General Manager and Director of Hockey Operations, who has been with the organization since May of 2018, has been a recipient twice of the Jim Gregory Manager of the Year award since his appointment in Long Island.

During a National Hockey League career that has spanned thirty-six years, Lamoriello has helped the New Jersey Devils to five Stanley Cup finals where they won three times. He was instrumental in firing head coach Doug Weight and General Manager Garth snow, while taking over responsibilities for the latter. During his tenure with the Islanders, Lamoriello brought in Barry Trotz to help right the ship after Trotz won the Stanley Cup with the Washington Capitals.


Lamoriello, who has an amazing career track record is known for singing aging veterans to too much term and too much dollar value needs to make some changes if he wants the Islanders to progress. At this rate, one has to wonder if his time in the NHL should be coming to a close


It has yet to be determined the length of contract that Lamoriello will be offered but some reports indicate it may in the neighborhood of three years.
