Top John Tavares News

  • Maple Leafs' John Tavares: Pair of points in win

    Tavares scored a goal on four shots, dished a power-play assist and added two PIM in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Coyotes.

    Tavares helped out on a William Nylander tally in the first period before scoring a goal of his own in the third. Prior to Wednesday, Tavares had gone three games without a point while missing two contests due to an illness and an injury in that span. The 33-year-old center is having a down year on offense, but he's still been solid with 16 goals, 42 points, 194 shots on net, 68 hits and a minus-3 rating over 53 appearances.

  • Maple Leafs' John Tavares: Three more points Wednesday

  • Maple Leafs' John Tavares: Pair of points in loss

    Tavares scored a power-play goal on six shots, dished an assist and added two PIM in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Islanders.

    Tavares made an impact against his former team, but the Maple Leafs came up short anyway. Prior to the All-Star break, the center endured a nine-game point drought that he snapped in the last game before the pause. Monday marked his first multi-point effort since Dec. 14. With the slump behind him, Tavares should resume being a solid fantasy option. He's produced 14 goals, 23 assists, 180 shots on net, 52 hits and a minus-2 rating through 48 contests this season.

  • Maple Leafs' John Tavares: Seven-game pointless skid

    Tavares was held off the scoresheet Saturday in a 6-4 loss to Vancouver.

    He fired six shots but had nothing to show for it. Tavares is stuck at 34 points (12 goals, 22 assists), and there is growing concern that his game has dropped off. He's gone seven contests without a point despite firing 21 shots. Tavares started the season so well, making this slump all the more glaring. He's on track to fire 300 shots for the first time in his career, but his shooting percentage is a measly 7.5 (12.8 career). We would hope there would be some reversion to the mean and those shots would start to go in more often. But the eye test on Tavares' game is pretty blurry right now. Start prepping a back-up plan for your fantasy postseason, just in case.

  • Maple Leafs' John Tavares: Just three shifts in third period

    Tavares saw his ice time drop to 15:03 in Saturday's 5-3 loss to Colorado after getting just three shifts in the third period.

    Tavares took a penalty on his first shift of the third. His next shift was sketchy, resulting in Andrew Cogliano's game-tying goal at the 7:35 mark. Tavares was stapled to the bench until he had 1:33 shift at the end of the game, which concluded with an empty-net goal against. It was a statement from coach Sheldon Keefe, who didn't like what he saw from the Tavares, Tyler Bertuzzi and William Nylander line. The captain is in a three-game scoreless drought, and he hasn't had a multi-point effort since Jan. 14 against Columbus. Tavares has provided just three goals and five points in his past 10 outings.

  • Maple Leafs' John Tavares: Hits double digits in goals

    Tavares scored the game-winning goal Saturday in a 4-1 victory over the Blue Jackets.

    Tavares' shot the puck under the bar after making a spin move from the left circle. His 10th marker of the season came early in the second frame while the teams were playing 4-on-4.

  • Maple Leafs' John Tavares: Captain Consistency at it again

    Tavares picked up two assists Thursday in a 6-5 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.

    Tavares might be the quietest point-per-game guy in the NHL. And a quietly effective 1,000-point guy. Tavares is on a six-game, eight-point streak that includes seven apples. And even though he has just one goal in his last 11 games, the captain has delivered eight goals and 20 assists in 27 games overall. If he keeps scoring at this pace, Tavares will vault up the list of all-time scorers toward the top-75 (he's currently 98th).

  • Maple Leafs' John Tavares: Earns 1,000th point vs. Islanders

    Tavares tallied a goal and added an assist in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Islanders.

    It was quite a night for Tavares against his former team. The 33-year-old center cut the Maple Leafs' deficit to 3-2 in the second period, deflecting a Connor Timmins feed past Ilya Sorokin, before notching his 1,000th NHL point on Morgan Rielly's game-tying goal with just seven seconds remaining in regulation. Tavares now has points in four straight games, though the goal was his first since Nov. 17. Overall, he has eight goals and 25 points through 25 outings this season.

  • Maple Leafs' John Tavares: Approaching 1,000 career points

    Tavares picked up an assist Saturday in a 4-0 win over Nashville.

    He's on a three-game points streak, but is goalless in his last eight contests. Tavares has 23 points (seven goals, 16 assists) in 24 games, but more importantly, he is now just two points away from hitting the 1,000-point plateau in his career. The ex-Islander will face his former team Monday on Long Island, which would be a fitting place for him to become the 98th player in NHL history to earn the milestone.
