Auston Matthews’ Parents Overcome With Emotion Watching Son Score Four Goals


Auston Matthews’ parents have a lot to be proud of.

Ema and Brian Matthews saw their 19-year-old son selected No. 1 overall in the 2016 NHL Draft, and just a few months later they witnessed him make history in his debut with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Auston scored four goals, the most ever by a player in their NHL debut, Wednesday in the Maple Leafs’ 5-4 overtime road loss to the Ottawa Senators. And each time he scored, the cameras panned to his parents, whose reactions were priceless.

It doesn’t get any better than that.
