The Toronto Maple Leafs have a new rookie goal scoring record.

On Tuesday night Auston Matthews did what many have been waiting to see when he broke the record previously set by Toronto Maple Leafs legend Wendel Clark in 1986.

At the time Clark had scored a very impressive 34 goals in his rookie year, but with this goal Matthews has now taken sole posession of first place with 35, and may still add more.
