Historic Cantiague Ice Rink Shoots and Scores With Renovation

Written by Cory Twibell Friday, 13 August 2010 00:00

Old Practice Site of 1980s Islanders

Gets Modern Makeover

For fans of the Islanders dynasty in the 1980s, which won four consecutive Stanley Cups from 1980-1984, a little piece of history recently experienced a big transformation as everything from the boards to the scoreboard underwent a revamping at the Cantiague Park Ice Rink in Hicksville.

Perhaps one of the most humble and underrated franchises of all time, the New York Islanders set a record for most consecutive playoff series wins, in any professional sport, with 19. During that time, the team laced their skates and taped their sticks between games at its second home: the practice facility at Cantiague Park.

A six-phase construction period began on July 3, wherein the rink had its ice melted and boards, glass and nets all removed before brand new replacements could be installed. Although not ideal for workers on the project, one of the hottest July months in recent memory significantly expedited the process of melting the ice, a vital step in the renovation that had to be completed before others could begin.

Raising Money, Awareness for a Deadly Disease

The Lustgarten Foundation was founded 10 years ago and has grown so much that the people running its annual Pancreatic Cancer Research Walk have had to move the venue to accommodate the 4,000 people expected to attend this weekend.

“We have grown pretty steadily; had 4,000 people last year,” said Kerri Kaplan, the executive director of The Lustgarten Foundation. “It’s mostly Long Islanders, so for a disease that only affects 40,000 people a year, it’s a huge amount of supporters in a place like Long Island.”
