Making Things Right: John Tavares met with a young fan in Winnipeg

John Tavares was bothered to hear about a young Islanders fan being harassed at an Islanders-Jets game in Winnipeg last season.

He knew the kind of impact a traumatic experience could have on a young fan, so Tavares sent him an autographed number 91 jersey to be worn proudly at future games.

But the captain didn’t just mail it in; he arranged to meet 12-year-old Jake Lotocki on Wednesday when the Islanders returned to Winnipeg.
