Want to learn more about MapleLeafs superstar John Tavares? The notorious rink rat chatted about a range of topics outside of the arena with lukefoxjukebox: what he loves, how he spends his precious downtime, which Leafs he’s clicked with ⤵️

In a sit-down interview with Sportsnet's Luke Fox, Toronto Maple Leafs captain John Tavares discussed living in Toronto, his conversations with Mike Babcock after he was let go and what he likes to do in his spare time.

Toronto Maple Leafs turn in a disappointing effort, Tavares will be the first one to step before the microphones and answer the hard questions. But you could participate in 91 Tavares scrums, listen to a slew of honest responses about the power play, the D-zone coverage and the contributions of the third-line winger, and still walk away feeling you don’t know a whole lot about the 29-year-old superstar. So, it was both refreshing and enlightening to just chat one-on-one with Tavares after practice one recent afternoon, away from a semicircle of cameras and free of the game-oriented line of questioning. For nearly 20 minutes, the notorious rink rat was happy to chat about a range of topics outside of the arena: what he loves, how he spends his precious downtime, which Leafs he’s clicked with. (And, of course, we talked some hockey too.) (This conversation has been edited for brevity.) Home of the Maple Leafs Stream 56 Maple Leafs games this season with Sportsnet NOW.
