Islanders John Tavares has green light for full activity after knee injury
MAY 15, 2014 5:20p ET
"Everything's pretty much back to normal," the Islanders captain said of the left knee he danaged at the Sochi Olympics. "I was cleared last week to resume full activity so I skated up with the London Knights as they're preparing for the Memorial Cup for three days and three practices and I feel really good."
Tavares hasn't played an NHL game since February, 18, scoring a goal in a 5-2 loss to the Colorado Avalanche. He tallied 24 goals and 42 assists in 59 games during the 2013-14 regular season.
"(I'm) excited to first take a couple weeks off here after a good two and a half months of rehab and strengthening and getting back to being able to play again," he said.
