Islanders Fan Holds Own Retirement Ceremony for Matt Moulson, Raises Jersey to Bedroom Rafters (Video)

Matt Moulson just added some new meaning to the term “fan favorite.”

On Sunday, the 30-year-old forward was part of the blockbuster deal that sent him packing to Buffalo in exchange for a couple of draft picks and the Sabres captain, Thomas Vanek. Although Moulson made his mark in New York, scoring 30-plus goals in three consecutive seasons for the club, he likely won’t go down in Islanders history having his jersey retired.

Enter one dedicated fan.

Breakups are never easy, but YouTube user Kenneth Reischmann isn’t moping around about the loss of presumably one of his favorite players. Instead, he’s paying homage to Moulson, creating a retirement ceremony for No. 26 from the comforts of his own home.

Reischmann raised Moulson’s jersey — jersey shirt, actually —  with a hanger and some sort of pulley system to the “rafters” of his bedroom as the Islanders’ horn and goal song played in the background.

Check out the clever tribute in the video below.
