Auston Matthews' future to be confirmed in the coming weeks

BY MARCO    JUNE 17, 2023  (9:53)
Elliotte Friedman is one of the hockey world's most respected informants. To achieve this title, you need solid sources, and you're rarely wrong.

In a recent episode of his podcast 32 Thoughts, he dared to predict what will happen with Auston Matthews, namely whether the star player will stay in Toronto or go elsewhere. Let's just say his answer is unequivocal.

"I'm convinced he's going to sign in Toronto." - Elliotte Friedman

Still according to Friedman, this new deal would arrive this summer and will be for eight years. What's more, it would be the most lucrative in NHL history, averaging $13.75 million per year.


His contract will most likely be similar to Matthew Tkachuk's in Florida, i.e. $1 million in salary and the rest in signing bonuses per year.
