  • Islanders' John Tavares: Marks scoresheet twice in win over Habs

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12:10 am ET) Tavares notched an assist and an empty-net goal in Thursday's 3-0 win over Montreal.

    Sure, this secondary helper and unchallenged goal aren't the two most impressive points of Tavares' career, but there's no stopping his second-half hot streak. Through the season's first 39 games, Tavares posted a modest (by his standards) 27 points; in the 21 games since, he's ripped off a dozen goals and a baker's dozen of assists. He's given us no reason to think he'll slow down now.

    Islanders' John Tavares: Breaks goal drought

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/20/17) Tavares scored the game-winner in Sunday's 6-4 win over the Devils.

    The former first-round pick went the past eight games without scoring a goal until Sunday. Still, that goal gives Tavares five points in the past five games. In addition, no offensive players on the Islanders see more ice time than Tavares, averaging 20:15 minutes per game. Heading into the thick of the playoff hunt, the 26-year-old will have the chance to be a valuable fantasy weapon.

    Islanders' John Tavares: Adds two more points to pile

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/17/17) Tavares acquired two assists -- one shorthanded -- in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Rangers.

    After a small lull, he's back to pumping out multi-point efforts on an unbelievably common basis. Tavares has registered multiple points in nine of his last 17 games, a span in which he's earned an impressive 21 points in total. Forget the first-half; struggles this second half has been the stuff of fantasy dreams.

    Islanders' John Tavares: Continues torrid pace with two-point night

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/4/17) Tavares scored a power-play goal and added an assist during Friday's loss to Detroit.

    The star pivot is up to nine goals, 16 points and 44 shots with a plus-8 rating through his past 10 games. This is the production fantasy owners were expecting when they called Tavares' name early in drafts this fall. The supporting cast is underwhelming, so it's unlikely he maintain his current offensive form, but continuing to provide a near point-per-game run through the end of the season isn't out of the question.

    Islanders' John Tavares: Open to extension

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/28/17) Tavares said he'd be willing to negotiate a contract extension with the Islanders this summer, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.

    The captain of the Isles will be participating in his third All-Star Game this weekend. His six-year deal valued at $5.5 million annually will expire after the 2017-18 season, with the benefit of modified no-trade, no-move clauses therein. Since Isles GM Garth Snow canned coach Jack Capuano, Tavares has produced eight points (three goals, five assists) in just five games -- including four special-teams assists and four two-point efforts in all but one of those contests. It's commendable that Tavares would want to stick with the club, even during this volatile season that has resulted in his team ranking sixth in an uber-competitive division through 47 games.
