John Tavares is expected to decide on Day 2 of the NHL draft whether to take advantage of the free-agency interview period that opens Sunday, TSN's Darren Dreger reports.

New York Islanders general manager Lou Lamoriello said Thursday that there's zero chance of a sign-and-trade involving the team captain.

Last week, Dreger reported that Tavares was focused on extension talks with the club.

The superstar forward would be the biggest name on the market if he were to test unrestricted free agency July 1.
