Tavares Reaches Impressive Milestone Against His Former Team


John Tavares reached an impressive milestone a few days ago.

He scored his 1000th point in the NHL, against the team that drafted him, the New York Islanders.

Isles fans were criticized by the entire hockey community following that great achievement for how they booed him during the celebration of his 1000th point.

Now, the Maple Leafs have made a major announcement concerning the captain.
