John Tavares and Rob MacDougall Dual-Signed Toronto Maple Leafs Limited Edition Print

John Tavares and Rob MacDougall Dual-Signed Toronto Maple Leafs 16x20 Limited Edition Print

Rob MacDougall has a passion for hockey and a passion for the Toronto Maple Leafs. This original painting was done on real maple leaves, as he was looking to incorporate a symbol of Canada, and the fact that Tavares plays for the Maple Leafs. Rob coached John in minor league lacrosse, not knowing his talent on the ice as he was a phenom in lacrosse as well, playing two years higher than his dedicated age group. A common phrase Rob would say among spectators watching John on the floor and on the ice “You Can’t Teach That”, as his talents were far more advanced than any spectator could imagine.

This limited edition of 191 print is signed by BOTH John Tavares and Rob MacDougall. This John Tavares and Rob MacDougall Dual-Signed Toronto Maple Leafs Limited Edition Print is officially licensed by the NHL and NHLPA and comes with a Frameworth Sports Hologram and Certificate of Authenticity to ensure the legitimacy of both signatures. This John Tavares and Rob MacDougall Dual-Signed Toronto Maple Leafs Limited Edition Print has UV protected inks to give a long lasting image but even a room that sees minimal direct sunlight may cause fading for this painting.

John Tavares - Frameworth Exclusive

Selected 1st overall by the New York Islanders during the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, John Tavares played nine seasons on Long Island where he served as Captain between 2013 – 2018. In his rookie season with the Islanders, Tavares had 24 goals and 54 points to finish fifth in voting for the Calder Trophy, but was awarded the NHL's top rookie award, and was named to the All-Rookie Team. Among his fellow NHL rookies, Tavares was tied for first in goals, second in points and third in assists (30). The following 2011-12 season, Tavares played all 82 games and finished with 81 points (31 goals, 50 assists), becoming just the fourth player in Islanders history to score at least 73 points in a season at age 21 or younger, joining Hall of Famers Mike Bossy, Bryan Trottier, and Dennis Potvin. With these numbers, Tavares was also the first Islander to score at least 70 points in a season since Alexei Yashin in 2001-02. 

In 2018, Tavares launched a new chapter in his NHL career when he signed a seven-year, $77 million contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs, the team that the Missisauga, Ontario, local grew up rooting for. Tavares had NHL career highs in goals (47) and points (88) in his first season with the Maple Leafs and within a year of joining the franchise, he was named the 25th Captain of the Toronto Maple Leafs, filling a role that had been vacant for more than 3.5 years. 

Tavares become the 107th player and 13th active to score 400 NHL goals in Toronto's 5-2 win at the Pittsburgh Penguins on Nov. 15, 2022. He had two assists in his 1,000th NHL game, a 5-1 win against the Washington Capitals on Jan. 29, 2023, becoming the second player in Maple Leafs history with multiple points when reaching the milestone (Tim Horton, two assists, Nov. 19, 1967).
