Auston Matthews declines to respond to a question from the media.

Mark Masters is widely regarded as a highly respected hockey journalist who primarily focuses on covering the Toronto Maple Leafs, although he occasionally reports on the World Juniors as well.

As is the case with all reporters, there are occasions when his inquiries may be deemed too general or may not elicit a response, such as in his recent interview with Auston Matthews.

After a recent training session, Sheldon Keefe had a brief chat with Matthews and Mitch Marner. It is believed that Keefe's intention was to boost Matthews' scoring chances by reuniting him with Marner during practice.

However, it's important to note that certain conversations between coaches and players should remain private.


On Wednesday, Masters was reminded of this fact. When Masters inquired about the discussion between Keefe, Matthews, and Marner, Matthews responded, stating what was discussed.

"Mark, that's none of your business, honestly. That's between us, I'll leave it at that."

Although Masters knew it was unlikely to receive an answer, he deserves credit for asking the question. This also provided a rare insight into Matthews' personality, which fans don't typically get to see enough of.
