Toronto Maple Leafs superstar forward Auston Matthews is the two-time reigning Rocket Richard Trophy winner as the National Hockey League’s top goal scorer, and for good reason. His last season total of hitting the 60 goal mark helped the Leafs to their best season in decades, and firmly cemented his status as one of hockey’s top snipers.
And thanks to his efforts, he’s been named as part of the NHL 2023 Team of the Year from EA Sports.
He’s joined by Cale Makar of the Colorado Avalanche, Roman Jose of the Nashville Predators, Connor McDavid of the Edmonton Oilers, and Nathan MacKinnon of the Avalanche.
