John Tavares News
The Toronto Maple Leafs have moved veteran center John Tavares to the third line in an effort to give the long-time NHLer some lesser matchups from the opposition. After a hot start, Tavares hasn't been nearly as productive at the offensive end of the ice as he sits with a still-solid 40 points across 52 games on the season, a notable drop from the 80 points he notched in as many games a season ago. Although he has five points in five February games, Tavares struggled with just two goals and four points in 13 January contests. He figures to center the red-hot Bobby McMann and Nick Robertson on Wednesday in Arizona while Max Domi will retain his spot in between Tyler Bertuzzi and William Nylander on the second line.
Toronto Maple Leafs center John Tavares will sit out Saturday's contest against Anaheim with an undisclosed injury. The Maple Leafs captain has just returned from an illness but is forced to sit out another game on Saturday. According to the team, Tavares is dealing with a minor injury and is considered day-to-day. With Tavares out, Max Domi is set to center the second line on Saturday. He's struggled offensively in recent weeks, but playing next to William Nylander puts Domi in an excellent spot to break out of the slump.
Toronto Maple Leafs forwards Mitchell Marner (illness) and John Tavares (illness) are expected to rejoin the lineup Thursday versus Philadelphia. Both players missed Tuesday's game against St. Louis with an illness and couldn't practice on Wednesday. Additionally, William Nylander was absent on Wednesday but is also expected to play on Thursday. The return of Marner and Tavares will be a nice boost for the Maple Leafs, who look to win their sixth game in eight outings on Thursday.
Toronto Maple Leafs center John Tavares finished with a goal and an assist in Monday's 3-2 loss against the Islanders. Tavares picked up an assist on forward Mitchell Marner's goal at the beginning of the second period, while he added a power-play goal of his own to tie the game with under five minutes remaining in the final frame. It was the first multi-point effort since Dec.14 for the Maple Leafs captain, while his season totals consist of 14 goals and 37 points through 48 games.
