Auston Matthews Pulls Off Effortless and Incredible Stick Flip
We know that Auston Matthews is an incredibly talented hockey player. He was the top pick in the overall draft, is the best player in the Toronto Maple Leafs, has incredible hand play and can seemingly return sticks to teammates with the best of them.
Yesterday, against the Florida Panthers, Matthews had one of the most incredible stick jumps I have ever seen. We have seen games like this in the past, but what we have seen from Matthews was basically a glance behind the back stick for a teammate. The teammate grabbed his stick and was able to get back directly into the game, rather than fumbling around trying to pick up his stick on the ice.

When he doesn't stick in style, Matthews has torn the league apart. He currently has 31 goals and 23 assists this season, making 54 points in just 46 games. He now has four consecutive 30-goal seasons in his resume and could very well reach the 50-goal mark for the first time in his young career.
