The Railers' NHL affiliate, which can't be announced until the summer but is unofficially lined up to be the New York Islanders, appears to be exactly what Worcester had hoped for when it began looking for a partner.

"We're extremely happy," Russell said. "We couldn't have scripted it any better. We were very diligent in the process and really think we hit a home run."
