The Toronto Maple Leafs might have lost their preseason game against the Ottawa Senators again on Wednesday night, but star forward Auston Matthews came out on top with the best move of the evening.
Despite scoring the two goals for the Leafs, Matthews will be remembered for pulling this great move on young Senators Scott Sabourin.
The young prospect, who impressed many by taking down Ben Harpur in a fight during the contest, went up to Matthews’ face to chirp him, but the Leafs star player had the perfect reaction: he looked at the back of Sabourin’s jersey trying to figure out who the hell he is…
He then just slowly skated away, making a clear statement. Quiet, but deadly! Matthews in three simple words.
Just the perfect reaction to get in the mind of a kid trying to impress and crack the NHL ranks. Hey, it’s part of the game!
Make Matthews captain now!
