With 11 goals so far this season, New York Islanders forward John Tavares trails only Buffalo Sabres sniper Thomas Vanek for the NHL lead, putting him on pace for the best goals-per-game total of his four-year-old professional career.

Not that that should be a surprise: Tavares has improved his totals every season since being drafted first overall in 2009. It's that's no accident, says TSN's Darren Dreger.
