In the NHL this season, fans will be catching Johnny Fever as they watch the New York Islanders young star light up the score board. If fans aren't catching the fever, they'll be hoping to catch some John Tavares 2009-10 NHL rookie cards from various Upper Deck NHL products. Whether it's low-end, middle-tier, or high-end, collectors will be craving this young stars hockey cards.
John Tavares was selected 1st overall in the July 2009 NHL Entry Draft after a career in the OHL which saw him break numerous offensive records including one held previously by Wayne Gretzky. Now that he has appeared in his first NHL game, one that saw him record one goal and one assist, Upper Deck will be able to showcase him in their winter line-up. The early favourite for Rookie of the Year, John Tavares should create a buzz similar to that created in 2005-06 when we saw Alexander Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby set the hobby on fire.
Tavares has appeared in previous releases of In The Game Ultimate, Superlative, and Heroes and Prospects, however these will be his first NHLPA sanctioned hockey card releases.
