With John Tavares set to make his return to Long Island in two weeks, questions about his decision to sign with the Toronto Maple Leafs this past offseason are already rolling in.

"I have absolutely no regrets," Tavares told reporters following Sunday's loss to the New York Rangers. "I'm in a great spot. It's been a tremendous opportunity and we're just beginning.

"When I made the decision it felt right to me and it was the best thing for me and my career."

Tavares' decision to leave the New York Islanders and join his childhood team is thus far paying off. The 28-year-old is just five goals shy of tying his career high of 38, with 26 games still to play. Meanwhile, his 60 points in 56 contests have him on pace to set a career best in that category, too.

The Maple Leafs will tangle with the Islanders on February 28, as Tavares will look to avenge a 4-0 loss to his former team back on Decruary 29.
