Auston Matthews 10 Fast Facts, Bio, Wiki

Matthews comes from a family of athletes, with his father having played college baseball and with an uncle, Wes Matthews, who briefly played in the National Football League for the Miami Dolphins.

His father is the chief technology officer of a manufacturing company based in New Jersey. He has two sisters: Alexandria, who is three years older, and Breyana, who is five years younger.

Due to his mother’s Mexican ancestry, Matthews can speak some Spanish.

Off the ice, Matthews was enrolled in several online courses with the University of Nebraska Omaha. In late August 2016, he moved to Toronto and began working out with teammates Mitch Marner and Morgan Rielly.

Matthews’ favorite athlete growing up was Kobe Bryant, while his favorite sports movie is The Mighty Ducks. He is a fan of players Jonathan Toews and Anže Kopitar due to their all around offensive and defensive game, has had his playing style compared to them.

In recognition of Matthews’ four-goal NHL debut, rap artist SVDVM released a song titled “Auston Matthews”. At the 2019 NHL Awards, Matthews was named the cover athlete for EA Sports’ ice hockey video game NHL 20.

In September 2019, Matthews was charged with disorderly conduct concerning an incident in his hometown of Scottsdale, Arizona, in May 2019, after he exposed his underwear to a female security guard.

Matthews stated it was “an error in judgment” not to advise the Maple Leafs team management of the incident, and there was speculation that the incident contributed to the Leafs’ decision to not give Matthews the captaincy of the Maple Leafs.

The charges were dismissed on November 13, 2019, after a settlement was reached between Matthews and the complainant.

On June 19, 2020, the Toronto Sun reported that Matthews had tested positive for COVID-19 while at home in Scottsdale, Arizona before the start of training camp.

Due to privacy concerns, the Toronto Maple Leafs did not comment on Matthews’ condition regarding COVID-19, however, on July 13, 2020, the first day of training camp, Matthews confirmed with reporters that he did contract the virus and that he was “mostly asymptomatic”.

Matthews is the NHL’s Sun Belt growth come to spectacular life.

Who would have thought a decade or so ago that a player raised in Scottsdale, Arizona, would be the No. 1 pick in the 2016 NHL Draft — and a potential franchise player for the Toronto Maple Leafs after scoring 158 goals before his 23rd birthday?

Matthews was the first United States-born player to be chosen No. 1 since the Chicago Blackhawks took Patrick Kane with the first pick in the 2007 NHL Draft.

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.

Matthews was an all-around athlete who chose to focus on hockey as an adolescent, and he excelled at every level of the game on his unique path to the NHL.

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).

The performance was a springboard not to major junior or college hockey, but to a one-and-done NHL prep season in Switzerland.

Playing in National League A, the top Swiss pro league, the 18-year-old center 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 IIHF Junior World Championship, where he tied for the tournament lead with seven goals and helped the U.S. win a bronze medal, and at the IIHF 2016 World Championship, where he led the U.S. with six goals and tied for the lead in points with nine.

Marc Crawford, Matthews’ coach with Zurich and a 15-year veteran behind NHL benches, likened him to Joe Sakic, the Hockey Hall of Fame center for the Colorado Avalanche.

Crawford said Matthews, who possesses a deadly wrist shot, might be the best puck-handling center he has seen.

Matthews had a record-setting NHL debut on Oct. 13, 2016, when he 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. He also helped the Maple Leafs advance to the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the second time since 2004.

Injuries limited Matthews to 62 games in 2017-18, but he finished with 63 points (34 goals, 29 assists) and helped the Maple Leafs return to the playoffs.

He followed that with NHL career highs of 37 goals and 73 points in 2018-19, then joined some elite company by hitting the 30-goal mark for the fourth time in as many NHL seasons in 2019-20 — this time doing it in just 45 games.

He finished the season with 47 goals in 70 games, ending up one short of League leaders David Pastrnak of the Boston Bruins and Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals.

Matthews won the Hart Trophy voted as most valuable player in the NHL in 2021-22, after finishing second in the voting to Connor McDavid of the Edmonton Oilers the previous season.

He joined Patrick Kane as the only United States-born players to win the Hart Trophy, and he was the first Maple Leafs player to win it since Ted Kennedy in 1954-55.

Matthews also became the first Toronto player to win the Ted Lindsay Award as the most outstanding player in voting by the NHL Players’ Association.

Matthews became the first NHL player born in the United States and first since Steven Stamkos of the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2011-12 to score 60 goals in a season.

He joined Darryl Sittler (1975-76, 1977-78, 1979-80 and 1980-81) as the second Maple Leafs player to have four 40-goal seasons when he helped Toronto defeat the Columbus Blue Jackets 5-4 at Nationwide Arena on March 7, 2022.

He set a Maple Leafs record when he scored his 55th goal of the season against the Dallas Stars at American Airlines Center in Dallas on April 8, 2022, passing Rick Vaive (54 for Toronto in 1981-82).

The following season, Matthews became the fourth-youngest active player (25 years, 108 days) to reach 500 NHL points with a goal and an assist in a 6-5 shootout loss to the St. Louis Blues on Jan. 3, 2023.

He was older than only Sidney Crosby (22 years, 244 days), Connor McDavid (24 years, 35 days) and Alex Ovechkin (24 years, 140 days).

Matthews accomplished the feat in his 445th game (278 goals, 223 assists), passing Mats Sundin and Rick Vaive (495 games) for the fastest to 500 points with the Maple Leafs.

On 10 April 2023, Matthews became the first player in Toronto history to score at least 40 goals in four consecutive seasons.
