New York Islanders captain, John Tavares was honored by one of his former OHL teams, the Oshawa Generals Sunday night. The 24 year old center man had his number, 91, retired by the team in a banner raising ceremony on Sunday night at the General Motors Centre in Oshawa. His number now hangs next to the likes of Bobby Orr, Red Tilson, and Eric Lindros. Tavares was selected by the Generals in the 2005 draft, and was eventually made captain. Tavares stayed with the team until he was traded to the London Knights in 2009. During his time in the OHL Tavares broke the record for goals scored after surpassing Peter Lee with his 214th goal.
