MSG NETWORK’S “BEGINNINGS”
GOES HOME WITH ISLANDERS STAR JOHN TAVARES

TUESDAY, JANUARY 13 ON MSG AND MSG+ FOLLOWING COMPLETE COVERAGE OF THE ISLANDERS/RANGERS GAME

New York, NY (January 12, 2015) – MSG Network continues season four of “Beginnings” with a glimpse into the childhood of Islanders star John Tavares. The half-hour episode goes home to Oakville, Canada with the Islanders captain who grew up with one thing on his mind: hockey. At 14, he was the youngest player ever drafted into the Ontario Hockey League and by the time his junior career was done, he had broken the OHL career scoring record. Last year he was named to the 2014 Canadian Olympic Hockey Team, winning a gold medal at the 2014 Winter Olympics.

Tavares talks about his dedication and love for the sport saying, “People always ask me what I would’ve been if I wasn’t a hockey player and I say I really don’t know because I never thought about anything else. [Growing up] I couldn’t sleep at night because I just couldn’t wait for the games to come. There’s nothing better than being on the ice.”

“Beginnings: John Tavares” will premiere Tuesday, January 13 on MSG and MSG+ following complete coverage of the Islanders/Rangers game (10:00 p.m. on MSG+ and 10:30 p.m. on MSG).

MSG Network’s original series “Beginnings,” presented by Melrose Credit Union, takes a behind-the-scenes look at where and how some of the greatest New York athletes got started. For more information, including a schedule of encore presentations of previous “Beginnings” episode, visit www.msg.com.
