Canadian forward John Tavares will miss rest of Olympics with leg injury

SOCHI, Russia - Canadian forward John Tavares has left the Olympic hockey quarter-final against Latvia with an apparent injury.

The New York Islanders captain was taken into the boards by Arturs Kulda in the second period.

The Canadian went down in a heap but skated to the bench where he was seen wincing in pain.

It wasn't immediately clear where Tavares hurt himself.

Tavares hasn't recorded a point in the tournament.

Quote of the Day

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
