According to Newsday, the New York Islanders are likely to offer John Tavares an 8-year contract worth approximately $10 million per season.

Tavares still has one more season before his contract is up but the Islanders GM is eager to lock him in before potentially losing him for nothing in the 2018 free-agency window.

Tavares, who underwent surgery about a month ago to fix lingering issues with his right hand, has made it clear that he fully intends on staying with New York.

He has played all of his 587 NHL games with the Islanders and has recorded a team-high 28 goals and 38 assists this past year despite missing the final five games of the season because of a hamstring injury.
