NEWSDAY REPORTS EX-JAGUARS PRESIDENT TO BE NAMED ISLES COO
Published November 5, 1997
Although their purchase of the Islanders has not received formal approval from the NHL Board of Governors yet, Steven Gluckstern and New York Hockey Ventures will name former Jaguars President & CEO David Seldin COO of the team today, according to Valenti & Topol of NEWSDAY. Sources confirmed that Seldin will be hired and said the move "bodes well for a new arena." Seldin served as the stadium "point man" during the construction of Jacksonville Municipal Stadium. Sources add that Gluckstern, a majority partner in the Isles, will retain his title of President and oversee team operations. Seldin left the Jaguars last January as President but remains a limited partner with the team. Since then he has been a consultant to the NFL in trying to put together a team for Cleveland (NEWSDAY, 11/5).
