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.
