Police searching for man who stole glove off Islanders bench during last game at Nassau Coliseum

Long Island police are searching for a man they say stole a glove from the Islanders bench during Game 6 of the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The matchup against the Washington Capitals turned out to be the team's final game at Nassau Coliseum.

A photo has been released of the suspect, who is seen holding a beer bottle with a CCM glove in Islander blue and orange. He is described as a white male with a beard that was wearing a hooded sweatshirt, blue shirt and blue hat, according to Newsday.

The Nassau County Police Department is asking anyone with information regarding the incident to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.

Other Islanders fans also took pieces of the Coliseum home with them as the season came to an end. There were several reports of stolen chairs after Game 3 of the same series against the Capitals on April 19.

The Isles move from the 40-year-old arena to Barclays Center at the start of next season.
