John Tavares Bio

Tavares has long been considered an exceptional talent, and he has delivered on the hype and become one of the top stars in the game for the New York Islanders, who selected him with the No. 1 pick in the 2009 NHL Draft.

Given his route to the NHL, his success was expected. At 14 he was granted exceptional player status by the Ontario Hockey League, allowing the Toronto-area native to be eligible for the OHL Draft. He was selected with the No. 1 by Oshawa in 2005.
