Auston Matthews Scores Unreal One-Handed Deflection Goal For Leafs

Auston Matthews was the No. 1 pick in the 2016 NHL Draft for a reason.

The Toronto Maple Leafs center has an abundance of skill, which includes incredible hand-eye coordination that was on full display during Monday night’s home game against the Anaheim Ducks.

Matthews scored a beautiful one-handed deflection goal, putting the Leafs up 1-0 on his 15th tally of the season.

Matthews, who scored four goals in his NHL debut back in October, is having an excellent rookie season.
