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

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.

Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
