Well – at least he knows someone there.
John Tavares, according to reports from AP, has signed with the same Swiss club in Bern, that Islanders Captain Mark Streit plays for.
The number one draft pick in 2009, and first time All-Star last season, is now among almost 100 players that are now in action in leagues all over the European continent.
Tavares is now the fourth Islander to be playing in Europe, joining Frans Nielsen (Lukko – Finland), Streit, and Lubomir Visnovsky (HC Slovan Bratislava – KHL).
Isles Talk will get updates on these players statistics as well as any other player that goes overseas during the lockout.
Tomorrow – training camp starts for the Sound Tigers at Ice Works. 2 weeks until the AHL season begins.
