Islanders pay tribute to retiring WWE star Daniel Bryan

Professional wrestler Daniel Bryan's retirement on Monday touched fans beyond the squared circle. It was also felt by the NHL's New York Islanders as well.

The New York Islanders showed their appreciation for Daniel Bryan by thanking the retiring WWE star for his audible contribution to their team.

Bryan’s signature "Yes!" chant routinely was heard during New York’s home games at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum last season as well as the Barclays Center in 2015-16.

The repetitive one-word salute became associated with the Islanders, so much so that EA Sports "NHL 16" included the chant in their video game every time captain John Tavares or his teammates scored a goal.

Citing numerous concussions throughout his 16-year career, Bryan announced his retirement over Twitter on Monday afternoon before making it official on "Monday Night RAW".
