Auston Matthews At Least Got To Take Home Some More Hardware

Auston Matthews had a big night at the NHL Awards. The 24-year-old Superstar took home the Ted Lindsay and Hart trophies tonight at the Awards in Vegas. The Ted Lindsay is awarded to the most outstanding player in the regular season voted by the NHL Players’ Association. Makes complete sense considering Matthews led the league in goals this season when he finished with 60 goals in 73 games, not to mention he tacked on 46 assists in that time to finish with 106 points. Everyone around the league took notice of that hot streak.

On top of that, a little later in the night Matthews also scooped the Hart Trophy, one of the most prestigious awards in the NHL which is given to the player who was the most valuable of their team. Matthews did lead the Leafs in points, he also led the team in Corsi For and Fenwick. Anyone who watches this guy can see he’s a trophy-worthy athlete and this will certainly not be his last award wins.

He tried his best to use that regular-season power to help the Maple Leafs get deep in the playoffs but they met a tough customer in the first round. Going up against the reigning Cup champs and taking them to seven games is impressive but it wasn’t enough to get them a second-round ticket. Maybe next year is their year but for now, at least the Leafs’ best player got to take home some more hardware.
