Last season was a whirlwind for this teenage wunderkind. Matthews was drafted first overall in 2016, scored four goals in his NHL debut, notched 40 tallies overall and won the Calder Trophy in an absolute landslide (164 of 167 first-place votes). Matthews is a bonafide star as a teenager and even has playoff experience after upstart Toronto pushed the NHL's regular-season champs from Washington to six games. Matthews is already a top-12 fantasy forward for both single-year and keeper formats, and he's only going to get better. He brings it all -- size, speed, strength, talent, leadership and determination. He'll contend for the Maurice Richard Trophy this season for most goals scored (he finished in a tie for second in 2016-17) and his overall point total should approach 80 with speedy finisher Patrick Marleau on his flank. Draft early and enjoy the rewards.

  2. Auston Matthews 2016–17 Preseason Outlook
    Matthews is the franchise center that all 30 teams covet in today’s NHL – big, fast, smart and strong, with a work ethic that’s off the charts. He spent 2015-16 with the Zurich Lions in the Swiss League at just 18 years of age and was the best player in the league. He scored over a point-per-game and pretty much played keep-away from pros, some of whom previously played in the NHL and AHL. Matthews came out of the US National Team Development Program (NTDP) and broke the program scoring records of Patrick Kane and Phil Kessel along the way. Some scouts have compared him to Evgeni Malkin while others say Jonathan Toews. We lean to the latter – Matthews lives and breathes the 200-ft game and oozes leadership by example. He’ll do what it takes to help his team win, even if it means scoring 20 fewer points than he could. Draft him in keeper formats for a consistent 70 points, but know full well he could drive home 90 some day if the planets fully align. A Jack Eichel-like rookie campaign awaits in the role of third-line center. And don't be surprised if he takes the second-line job away from Tyler Bozak before season's end.
