ex-Isles Morrow, Galley to be honored

It's been a good week to be Kenny Morrow.

Days after the Isles announced that he will be entering their Hall of Fame (on December 31st, prior to a matinee against Edmonton), his alma mater, Bowling Green State University, announced that it will retire his college number (#3) to its "Cast of Honor".  

Morrow's number will be honored for not only him but two other NHL standouts, Rob Blake and Garry Galley.  Galley played the final 56 of his 1,149 NHL games for the Isles in 2000-01.
 
Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since 1982. Visit my blog: NYISkinny.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
