Tavares To Miss Rest Of The Olympics, Maybe Longer?

Update: According to Arthur Staple, John Tavares will in fact miss the rest of the Islanders season with a torn MCL and a torn meniscus.  The Islanders captain is expected to be ready for training camp in September.

During Canada's 2-1 win over Latvia today, Islanders forward John Tavares suffered a knee injury after attempting to sidestep a hit along the boards.

Following the hit, Tavares went to the Canada bench and didn't return to the game.  According to Bob McKenzie from TSN, we will find out a more detailed diagnosis on the extent of Tavares injury tomorrow after an MRI.  McKenzie said the word out of Sochi is it isn't good though.

Now, I might be being a bit of a pessimist but I have a feeling we won't be seeing Tavares again until training camp next season.
