Swiss hockey club Bern announced the signing of New York Islanders center John Tavares on Friday.

Tavares, 22, is expected to arrive in Switzerland on Tuesday and begin training with his Swiss club the next day.

The No. 1 pick of the 2009 NHL Draft, Tavares played in his first All-Star Game last season. He registered 81 points in 82 games during 2011-12 and has 202 points in 243 career NHL games.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
