With so much of his future up in the air, New York Islanders captain John Tavares has decided to add some much needed certainty in his life. The 26-year-old superstar recently got engaged to his longtime girlfriend Aryne Fuller!
That’s awesome, congrats JT! Whether the couple will begin married life in Brooklyn or elsewhere however, remains the be seen. With Tavares’ contract set to expire on July 1st, 2018 he’ll be the hottest commodity in the NHL for the next 10 months. Will he stay or will he go?
Should Tavares elect to test the free-agent market, it’s likely that Islanders general manager Garth Snow will look to move Tavares in a trade before losing him for nothing. While Snow likely prefer to ink the superstar to a long-term deal, he can’t afford to have him walk away for nothing.
Of course, a return to the Islanders is not out of the picture. Tavares is a famously loyal individual and has stated all along that he hopes to remain and Islander beyond this season. What will he do? Only time will tell, but for now we sincerely wish Mr. and Mrs. Tavares all the best in their marriage!
