John Tavares

Toronto Maple Leafs

John Tavares scored the Maple Leafs first goal of the game in what was an eventual 4-2 win over the Minnesota Wild. It was his second of the season.

Fantasy Impact: The goal total so far might be a bit lower than expected considering he sniped a career-high 47 a season ago, but his shot total this season is what's most alarming. Tavares only has 10 shots on goal through seven games. That's simply not going to cut it for a sniper. He's still managed to provide six points (two goals, four assists) in seven games to salvage this "downswing" to open the year, but he needs to start creating more opportunities to reach the lofty goal expectations set for him.

John Tavares was introduced as the 25th captain in Toronto Maple Leafs history during the pre-game ceremony of the team's season opener. Tavares posted a power-play assist and two shots on goal in the 5-3 victory over Ottawa.

Fantasy Impact: The Maple Leafs chose the dramatic route in announcing their captain as the rumours and speculation swirled all the way up until the team was first introduced on their home ice. The new captain is coming off of a career-best season that included 47 goals and 88 points. He's once again skating alongside super-skilled playmaker Mitch Marner and is locked into a top power-play role, so Tavares is set up for what should be another very strong season in 2019-20.

Fantasy Impact: Though the extent of the injury is not currently known, Tavares should be okay for the start of next season. Nevertheless, the injury is an example of why NHL teams are wary of their players participating in international tournaments. Tavares enjoyed a tremendous first season in Toronto in 2018-2019, registering career-high totals in both goals (47) and points (88).
