Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Tests positive for COVID-19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews has tested positive for COVID-19, Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun reports.

This news comes on the heels of the Lightning announcing they have temporarily closed their training facility after three players and two staff members tested positive for COVID-19. Matthews is currently self-quarantining at his home in Arizona, and at this point it's too early to speculate on whether his illness will affect his availability for Toronto's training camp, which is tentatively scheduled to start July 10.

Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Big leap forward this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews sits third in the NHL goal race with 47 in 70 games, just one snipe behind David Pastrnak and Alexander Ovechkin.

Matthews' game has taken a big leap this season. He has 10 more goals than he did in almost the same number of games in 2018-19 (68). And there are even rumors he could be considered for a Selke trophy, awarded to the top two-way player in the league. Just take a look at his plus-minus. Sure, it's a maligned stat. But there's a huge swing between minus-9 a year ago and plus-19 this season. Matthews really is a fantasy building block.

Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Seals victory with empty-netter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews notched an empty-net goal on four shots and won nine of 15 (69.2 percent) faceoffs in Monday's 5-2 win over Nashville.

Matthews put the finishing touches on Toronto's win when he hit the empty net with 1:32 left in regulation. It was his 35th goal in 50 games this season, already putting him within striking distance of the career-high 40 he scored as a rookie in 2016-17. The 22-year-old failed to hit 70 games played in each of the last two seasons due to injuries, limiting his year-long production. If he can continue his current pace and stay healthy the entire year, Matthews could be on his way to a 50-goal, 100-point campaign.

Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Slotting in Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews (wrist) will play in Monday's game versus the Predators, Lance Hornby of The Toronto Sun reports.

Matthews didn't participate in the All-Star Game due to this injury, and although he's admitted he's not fully healthy, the 22-year-old sniper will gear up in the cross-conference clash. He underwent acute treatment on his wrist during the bye week, but this could be a nagging issue as the year progresses. Matthews has 34 goals and 57 points -- 17 on the power play -- through 49 games.
