  • Maple Leafs' John Tavares: Back after difficult COVID ordeal

    Tavares (COVID-19 protocols) returned to the practice ice Sunday after missing 11 days, reports the Toronto Star.

    Tavares was one of the first Leafs stricken with the virus and experienced a pounding headache, severe body aches and loss of energy, smell and taste. And he was one of the first back from the protocols. Unfortunately, there were 14 Leafs and seven staffers, including coach Sheldon Keefe, on the protocol list, and 24 AHL Marlies are also in protocols. Wednesday's game has been postponed, which gives the team more time to recover.

  • Maple Leafs' John Tavares: In virus protocols

    Tavares entered COVID-19 protocols Friday.

    Tavares will miss Saturday's game and likely Sunday's as well. How long he's sidelined after that will depend on potential symptoms and his ability to produce two negative tests. The 31-year-old had only missed one game thus far in 2021 and he's been very productive, recording 13 goals and 19 assists.

  • Maple Leafs' John Tavares: Nine points in last four

    Tavares had a goal and two assists in Wednesday's 8-3 win over Colorado.

    The Maple Leafs capitalized on Darcy Kuemper (upper body) being a late scratch, as Avalanche backup Jonas Johansson didn't look ready to play and the visitors had nobody else to turn to once it got ugly. Tavares -- who has multiple points in each of his past four games -- was one of three Maple Leafs with three points in this one, joining Auston Matthews (three goals) and Michael Bunting (three assists). With 11 goals and 25 points through 23 games, Tavares could challenge his career highs of 47 goals and 88 points from 2018-19, though the latter is a more realistic target for a guy who hasn't broken 40 goals outside of that career year.

  • Maple Leafs' John Tavares: Slides pair of helpers

    Tavares recorded two assists, four shots on net and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Ducks.

    That's three straight multi-point games for Tavares, who has two goals and four helpers in that span. The star center helped out on goals by linemates Alex Kerfoot and William Nylander in Sunday's win. Tavares has 10 goals, 12 assists, 73 shots and a plus-2 rating through 22 contests, so fantasy managers have no need to take him out of their lineups.

  • Maple Leafs' John Tavares: Another two-point effort Friday

    Tavares scored a power-play goal on two shots, dished an assist and blocked three shots in Friday's 4-1 win over the Sharks.

    Tavares and William Nylander set each other up in the contest as the only two Leafs to record multiple points. The 31-year-old Tavares has put up back-to-back two-point games, giving him 10 goals, 10 assists, 69 shots on net and five power-play points through 21 contests overall. He's once again flirting with a point-per-game pace, which is pretty much par for the course for the Ontario native.

  • Maple Leafs' John Tavares: Puts up two points

    Tavares scored a goal on three shots, dished an assist and went plus-2 in Wednesday's 6-2 win over the Kings.

    Tavares scored at 5:26 of the second period and also assisted on an Auston Matthews goal later in the middle stanza. The 31-year-old Tavares has cooled off a bit lately with five points in his last seven games since returning from a one-game absence. He's still racked up nine goals, nine helpers, 67 shots and an even plus-minus rating in 20 outings. He'll continue to play a productive role in a strong offense and should be a plug-and-play option for fantasy managers.

  • Maple Leafs' John Tavares: Game-time call Wednesday

    Tavares is dealing with an undisclosed injury and will be a game-time decision versus the Flyers on Wednesday, David Alter of The Hockey News reports.

    Tavares has been red-hot to start the year with seven goals and six helpers in 13 appearances, including two power-play points. If the Ontario native is unable to suit up against Philadelphia, the team is poised to shift Alex Kerfoot into the second-line center role while Nick Ritchie could move into the top six. Barring an extended injury absence, Tavares should be capable of challenging for the 80-point threshold this year for the first time since 2018-19.
