Islanders website: Reported John Tavares signed a six year contract extension at a press conference.

“Over the past two years, John has shown a strong commitment to the Islanders organization and the Long Island community through his efforts both on and off the ice,” said General Manager Garth Snow. “He is a key component to the core of players we’ve decided to build this team around and we couldn’t be happier to ensure that he will be a New York Islander for years to come.”

“I’m thrilled to show the organization and loyal Islanders fans that I want nothing more than to win on Long Island,” Tavares said. “Charles and Garth have both shown a tremendous amount of loyalty towards me, and I look forward to honoring this long-term commitment. This is an exciting team to be a part of right now. We have a group that I feel will contend every year for a championship and I’m privileged to be a part of the Islanders’ future.”

NYIFC Comments:
Press conference ran for about fourteen minutes. Only Tavares, Snow taking questions, he was not named captain. Tavares was a bit nervous, but to be expected.

No questions were asked about Josh Bailey before they broke off for separate media scrums.

Obviously a great day for John Tavares and the New York Islanders.
