Top Auston Matthews News

  • Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Quiet spell broken by two assists

    Matthews delivered two assists Thursday in a 4-3 shootout win over the Kraken.

    The points were his first in four games. And he has put up points in just two of his last eight contests. Coach Sheldon Keefe recently split Matthews and Mitchell Marner up to try to inject some life into the top lines, moving William Nylander up to play with Matthews. And it seems to have produced results. Matthews is too good for this slump to continue. Get ready to hold onto your hat, because he may be about to take off.

  • Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Two-point effort Sunday

    Matthews scored a power-play goal and added an even-strength assist in Sunday's 4-3 overtime win over the Wild.

    He got Toronto on the board midway through the first period on a pinball goal, as William Nylander's pass attempt caromed off Joel Eriksson Ek's stick, Jonas Brodin's skate and Marc-Andre Fleury's pad before going right to Matthews in front of the net, and he didn't miss. The performance snapped a brief three-game point drought for the 26-year-old superstar, but Matthews still has an NHL-leading 14 goals (tied with Kyle Connor) and seven assists through 17 games. Five of his tallies and two of his assists have come on the power play.

  • Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Adds another two goals Monday

    Matthews contributed two goals and an assist in Toronto's 6-5 overtime victory over Tampa Bay.

    Is it too early to start thinking about Matthews scoring 50 goals in the first 50 games of 2023-24? We're just 12 contests in, so it is probably jumping the gun, but to already be at 13 tallies (along with five assists) is something special. Matthews' goals have come in bunches. He opened the campaign with back-to-back hat tricks and after enduring a cold patch, the 26-year-old is on fire again with another six goals over his last three appearances.

  • Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Third hattie this season

    Matthews delivered a hat trick in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Sabres.

    It's Matthews' third hattie this season, and he now sits on top of the NHL in goals with 11. He did everything in his power to put the listless Leafs on his back and carry them to a win. Matthews is doing what he can to earn his third Maurice "Rocket" Richard Trophy.

  • Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Another goal from center

    Matthews scored a goal Thursday in a 3-2 shootout loss to Boston.

    He wired a one-timer from the left face-off circle over Jeremy Swayman's glove-side shoulder. Matthews has just two goals in his last eight games after putting up six in his first two games. But overall, Matthews has six points (two goals, four assists) in his last five games and 12 points, including eight goals, in 10 games played so far this season.

  • Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Showing off playmaking

    Matthews had an assist in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Predators.

  • Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Pockets helper in win

    Matthews notched an assist and three shots on goal in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Stars.

    Matthews fed Mitchell Marner for the go-ahead goal in the second period, which stood as the game-winner. The 26-year-old Matthews has bounced back from a three-game drought with a goal and two helpers over his last two outings. For the season, the superstar center has seven tallies, two assists, 34 shots on net, 12 hits, seven blocked shots and a plus-1 rating through seven appearances.

  • Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: March to greatness continues

    Matthews scored a goal and added an assist in Toronto's 4-1 win over Washington on Tuesday.

    Matthews got his first assist of the season in the second period when he hit William Nylander with a great stretch pass in the second period, and the winger swung around the Caps' defender and roofed the puck. Then Matthews scored at 15:07 of the second on a one-timer top cheddar from the left circle on the power play. It was the 26-year-old's only shot of the game, and he played just 18:51 (19 shifts) after averaging over 23 minutes a game thus far. It's likely a rest game for the superstar who is quickly cementing his place as the greatest Leaf of all time (GLOAT). Matthews has 140 road goals, which ties him with Dave Keon for fourth in Leafs history. And his 79 power-play goals tie him with Wendel Clark for the fourth most PPG in club history.

  • Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Two games, two hatties

    Matthews scored his second hat trick in as many games in a 7-4 win over Minnesota on Saturday.

    Matthews is only the fifth player in NHL history to score a hattie in his first two games to start a season. He joins Alex Ovechkin (2017-18), Cy Denneny (1917-18), Joe Malone (1917-18) and Reg Noble (1917-18). Matthews is dialed in and healthy, and that's fantastic news for the Leafs and fantasy managers alike.

  • Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Hat trick in opener

    Matthews tallied three goals in Wednesday's 6-5 win over the Canadiens.

    Matthews tied the game 2-2 with a power-play tally in the second period before scoring twice in the final five minutes of the third to even the score 5-5. It's quite a way to start the year for Matthews, who's scored 40 or more goals in each of his last four seasons. The 26-year-old center finished the 2022-23 campaign with 40 goals and 85 points in 74 games.

  • Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Penalty kill time on horizon

    Matthews will see more regular time on the penalty kill this season, reports The Athletic.

    Matthews has seen a total of only about 24 minutes on the PK in nearly 500 NHL games, but that's about to change. Matthews is one of the NHL's best 5v5 players and always among the league leaders in takeaways. So, the threat of a steal -- and of Matthews taking off shorthanded with a lot of open ice -- will certainly put extra pressure on opposing PPs. Matthews won't be one of the Leafs' top options on the PK -- those minutes belong to Mitchell Marner, David Kampf and Calle Jarnkrok, with Sam Lafferty getting some, too. The only negative? Playing on the PK will likely lead to a slight drop in 5v5 time. That's less than ideal for one of the NHL's best 5v5 players, and for fantasy managers needing that even-strength production, but it won't be enough to affect his draft spot or overall fantasy worth.
