Rejoice Leafs Nation Auston Matthews Re Signs in Toronto

Aug 23, 2023

Hello Crier peeps, I have been talking about this for a while now and that is the shit storm that would come around if Auston Matthews doesn’t resign a deal with Toronto before October 11, 2023, aka opening night.

Those fears and worries are a bridge Leafs Nation won’t have to worry about crossing until 2028, you may ask. That is because it was announced today that Auston Matthews has signed a 4-year deal at $13.25 million to stay with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Even the man himself confirmed the deal on twitter, where he hasn’t tweeted since March.

What this means is the Maple Leafs window to do something that hasn’t been done in 60 years now will probably go until 2028 for now. I say this because Matthews will be 31 at the start of the 2028-2029 season which is old in hockey years and we don’t know how he will be by then, not a knock on Matthews just reality of a situation where we can’t see 5 years into the future.

But for now Leafs Nation, rest tight and get ready as the 2023-2024 season to begin, for now I leave you with some Auston Matthews highlights. Go Leafs Go.

Hi, my name is Griff and I'm a complete sports nut. I love to play sports, watch sports and most importantly bet on sports too. If I'm not watching or betting on sports, you can find me on the golf course, between the pipes as your average beer league goaltender. Although sports take up most of my life, I also love spending time with my two dogs, streaming usually a 90's Simpson's or attempting to read more books.
