For years, Leafs fans have been singing the praises of Auston Matthews, the big star on the team, and how he should be considered one of the best in the league, both for his insane shooting and finishing ability, but also for the rise of his all-around game over the last few years.

Maple Leafs’ Auston Matthews Gets Some Love from Fellow NHL Players

Austin Matthews had a great regular season. He could have been better in the playoffs, but I guess there’s always a next postseason – Maple Leafs’ fans hope. Although the postseason ended much too quickly for both the team and their fans, the NHL awards gods have been kind to Matthews; and, it’s not that he hasn’t deserved the honors either. He clearly does.

IT’S LADY BYNG FINALIST SZN AND AUSTON MATTHEWS MADE THE CUT!!!

In what was undoubtedly the most physical, rough and tumble year of Auston Matthews career, it appears Matthews is still viewed as quite the gentleman. Yep. He’s our gentleman despite seeing his penalty minutes increase from 8 in 2019-20 to 10 this season, and his hit total jump from 40 to 57 this year despite playing in 18 fewer games. Yes, Auston remains a Lady Byng finalist for the second straight year, and after finishing second in voting last season, it’s very possible that he’s the front runner this season because Brian Campbell is the only defenseman who won the award in the past 65 years. Facing Spurgeon and Slavin would probably make Matthews the favourite, and I wonder if voters will treat the Byng as Matthews consolation prize for having an incredible season, but not being able to leap past Connor McDavid for the Hart.
