Take home a Toronto Maple Leafs adidas Authentic Jersey signed by Auston Matthews!
A decade or so ago, who would have thought that a player raised in Scottsdale, Arizona would be the No. 1 pick in the 2016 NHL Draft - and be a potential franchise player for the Toronto Maple Leafs in hockey's homeland, no less? Matthews was the first United States-born player to be drafted first since Patrick Kane in 2007. While growing up, he idolized players such Shane Doan and Daniel Briere, members of the Phoenix/Arizona Coyotes, a franchise that relocated in 1996 from Winnipeg.
With USA Hockey's National Team Development Program in 2014-15, Matthews set United States Under-18 team records for a single season with 55 goals and 117 points (surpassing Kane's 52 goals and 102 points in 2005-06). Playing in National League A, the top Swiss pro league, the left-shot forward had 24 goals (fourth in the league) and 46 points (10th) in 36 games with Zurich in 2015-16. He played for the United States at the 2016 Junior World Championship, where he tied for the tournament lead with seven goals and won a bronze medal, and at the 2016 World Championship, where he led the U.S. with six goals and tied for the lead in points with nine. In his NHL debut on Oct. 13, 2016, Matthews scored four goals, becoming the first player in the League's modern era to do so.
He led all rookies in goals (40), points (69) and shots on goal (279) in 2016-17 to win the Calder Trophy, awarded to the NHL's rookie of the year.
