Tavares led the league in points last month with nine goals and 13 assists while registering a plus-11 rating. The third-year pivot recorded a point in all but one of the Islanders' 13 games.
Nashville Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne rounded out the monthly stars. The 29-year-old lost just one of his 12 starts -- he is currently riding a 10-game winning streak -- and posted a 1.92 goals-against average with a .935 save percentage.
