Number 49, Rhett Rhakshani, #49

Rhett would become the 6th Islander to wear #49.

The others:
Robert Petrovicky
Eric Godard
Drew Fata
Vlad Orszagh
Mitch Fritz

Petrovicky also wore #39 (he needed two uniform #'s for his one season, 11 game
Islander career.) He is the last player to wear #39 prior to Rick DiPietro.
