Top Auston Matthews News

  • Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Hat trick in blowout win

    Matthews scored three goals on eight shots in Wednesday's 8-3 win over the Avalanche.

    Matthews stretched his goal streak to four games with his third multi-goal performance of the season and first hat trick since April 10 against Ottawa. The reigning Rocket Richard Trophy winner has a lot of ground to make up on Leon Draisaitl, who has already reached the 20-goal mark, but we're not even one-third of the way through the season, and Matthews has almost as many goals in the last four games (six) as he did in his first 17 (seven).

He's up to 19 points, 85 shots on net and a plus-5 rating in 20 contests. The Maple Leafs have won seven of their last eight games, and the offense is humming -- with Matthews a key piece in the team's recent success.

  • Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Goal and assist Wednesday

    Matthews scored a goal on six shots and added an assist in Wednesday's 6-2 win over the Kings.

All six of his multi-point efforts this year have come in November, as it took him some time to get up to speed after starting the season while wrapping up his recovery from wrist surgery.

  • Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Two points in Tuesday's win

    Matthews scored the game-winning goal on the power play and added an even-strength assist in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Predators.

    He opened the scoring midway through the first period, taking a cross-ice feed from William Nylander and wiring it past Juuse Saros, and Jack Campbell took care of the rest in the Toronto net. Matthews has a four-game point streak going, and on the season he's up to seven goals and 14 points in 14 games.

  • Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Pots overtime winner

    Matthews scored the game-winning goal in Friday's 2-1 overtime victory over the Flames.

    He also added a game-high eight shots on net, one blocked shot, one hit and a plus-1 rating to his ledger. Matthews has shaken off his slow start to the season, piling up six goals and 11 points in the last nine games after missing the first three games of the campaign with a wrist injury and then being held scoreless in his first three contests after returning to the ice.

  • Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Adds two more points to ledger

    Matthews had two assists and two shots on goal in Wednesday's 3-0 win over Philadelphia.

    Matthews figured in on a pair of William Nylander goals, setting up an even-strength tally in the second period and a power-play strike in the third. Toronto has played five games since the calendar flipped to November, and Matthews has delivered exactly two points (four goals, four assists) in four of them.

  • Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Two times a sniper

    Matthews scored two goals, both on the power play, in a 5-2 win over the Bruins on Saturday.

    The first one was a sweet rebound over Linus Ullmark's glove as he followed his own shot. And the second snipe was a lightning-fast one-timer from the right face-off circle that ultimately stood as the winner. Matthews now has three consecutive two-point games (four goals, two assists) and has found his scoring groove, even without Mitch Marner on his flank.

  • Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Sets up both goals in win

    Matthews set up two goals in a 2-1 overtime win over Tampa Bay on Thursday.

    Matthews now has six points (three goals, three assists) in eight games this season. Like his Leafs mates, Matthews has had a slow start to the season. But with two consecutive two-point games, it's clear the rust is coming off.

  • Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Lights lamp twice in win

    Matthews scored two goals, one on the power play, in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Golden Knights.

    Both tallies came in the second period, and Matthews rounded out his performance with six shots, two blocked shots, one hit and a plus-2 rating. The 24-year-old took a few games to get going this season, but he has three goals and four points in his last four contests.

  • Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Collects first goal of season

    Matthews scored Toronto's lone goal in a 4-1 loss to the Hurricanes on Monday.

    After missing the first three games of the season and then being held off the scoresheet in three games after rejoining the Leafs' lineup, Matthews finally opened his scoring account as he gave Toronto an early lead in the first period Monday. The 24-year-old has reached 40 goals in each of the last two campaigns, and there's nothing to suggest Matthews will have much trouble reaching that mark again if he can stay reasonably healthy.

  • Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Fires eight shots in season debut

    Matthews registered a game-high eight shots on goal and won 13 of 15 faceoffs (86.7 percent) in Monday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Rangers.

    After missing the first three games of the season with a wrist injury, Matthews came out firing in his season debut but was unable to solve New York netminder Igor Shesterkin. Matthews was also dominant in the faceoff circle, and he was able to log 22:53 of ice time, second most among Toronto forwards behind only Mitch Marner's 24:26. Matthews and the Maple Leafs now have three days off before hosting San Jose on Friday.

  • Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Good to go Monday

    Matthews (wrist) will make his season debut Monday against the Rangers, per NHL.com.

    It was reported earlier that Matthews was expected to play after he was a full participant in Sunday's practice and now it appears to be official. The 24-year-old superstar pocketed 41 goals and totaled 66 points through 52 games last season. He missed the first three games this season but is expected to jump right back into his role as Toronto's top-line center Monday.

  • Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Expects to play Monday

    Matthews (wrist) was a full participant at Sunday's practice in his usual top-line spot next to Mitch Marner and Nick Ritchie and expects to play Monday against the Rangers, David Alter of The Hockey News reports.

    Matthews also took reps in his usual No. 1 power-play slot, so it looks all but guaranteed that he'll make his season debut Monday. The superstar has sat out the first three games of the campaign after undergoing wrist surgery in August. Also, though Matthews isn't on injured reserve and doesn't require formal activation, fantasy managers should make certain he's in the lineup Monday before rolling with him for their virtual squads.

  • Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Will miss first three games

    Matthews (wrist) has been ruled out for the Maple Leafs' first three games of the season, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports.

    Even with a three-game absence, Matthews should still be in the mix for the Richard Rocket Trophy at the end of the year and could challenge for the 50-goal threshold. In the meantime, Alex Kerfoot figures to step into a top-six role while Nick Ritchie replaces Matthews on the No. 1 power-play unit.

  • Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: In doubt for Opening Night

    Matthews (wrist) told reporters he's "doing well" Thursday, but he also mentioned he has some doubt that he'll be ready for Wednesday's season opener versus Montreal, Lance Hornby of The Toronto Sun reports.

    Matthews began taking contact during Sunday's practice, but the Maple Leafs aren't going to insert him into game action until he's fully ready in order to ensure his wrist injury doesn't turn into something that lingers throughout the campaign. At this point Matthews should probably be considered iffy at best for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Canadiens, but it also doesn't sound like the star center will miss much more time following that contest.

  • Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Starts taking contact

    Matthews (wrist) participated in contact drills for the first time since training camp started Sunday, David Alter of The Hockey News reports.

    Matthews may not suit up for any of the Maple Leafs' remaining three preseason games, but the 24-year-old pivot appears to be on track to be ready for Toronto's Opening Night matchup versus Montreal on Oct. 13. Matthews led the NHL with 41 goals in just 52 contests last season and should be one of the first forwards off the board in all fantasy formats.
