The general manager of the Islanders, Lou Lamoriello, told Sirius XM NHL Network radio that the proposed Belmont Park arena could be finished sooner than expected. Lamoriello predicts having a more precise timeline by Jan. 1, 2019, but it’s been expected that the project would be completed by the 2021-22 season, Newsday reported. In the meantime, the team will split their time between the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and the Nassau Coliseum through next year. The project by Empire State Development is currently under environmental review with building expected to begin in the spring.  [Newsday]
