from John Kreiser of NHL.com,
As his NHL career nears the end of its first month, Tavares gives the appearance of a player who’s enjoying the learning experience that goes along with the introduction to life in the NHL.
“It’s been great. I’ve been learning a lot, experiencing a lot of new things,” he said after the win against the Rangers. “I’m starting to learn the way of life in the NHL and what it takes to be a pro every day. Everyone from the staff and management, the coaching staff, the trainers and my teammates have been great. They’ve helped me out a lot with stuff away from the ice and allowed me to focus on hockey. That’s made it a lot easier. It’s been a lot of fun.”
Especially when you score a goal to help your team beat its biggest rival, right?
“Being in games like this one is what I worked for as a kid,” he said. “To finally be here and be a part of this is special for me, and I’m looking forward to the rest of the year.”
