John Tavares could have been anywhere in the world on Wednesday, but he was at Northwell Health Ice Center to see his teammates. 

Not Cal Clutterbuck, Johnny Boychuk or the New York Islanders, but three kids from his Tavares' Teammates program, whom he was unable to meet after getting injured at the end of the season. 

"It's just great to see their smile on their face and just their excitement and their support for the Islanders," Tavares said. "It's great to meet them and show them the locker room a little bit and get to know them. It's something I enjoy."

Barzal Capping Junior Career In Style

After winning a WHL Title and playoff MVP, Mathew Barzal will now compete for the Memorial Cup

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

For Mathew Barzal, winning the Western Hockey League Championship settled some unfinished business. 

Last season, Barzal and the Seattle Thunderbirds made it all the way to the WHL Final, but fell in five games to the Brandon Wheat Kings. With one last chance to hoist the WHL crown, Barzal led the T-Birds to the promised land, downing the Regina Pats in six games. 

"It's pretty special," Barzal said. "Losing last year in the finals and coming back this year and winning it all just feels so good. Every guy on that team has worked so hard and I'm proud of everybody, it's been a great ride so far and we're looking forward to the Memorial Cup."
