Auston Matthews was just signed to a 5 year contract. The first overall pick in the 2016 NHL draft now has a 5 year contract with 11.634 Million a year starting in 2019-2020 season with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Auston Matthews, who has 38 games played with 23 goals and 23 assists this season. I think this is a good deal for the Maple Leafs because he is a great young player who isn’t even in his prime. If I was Toronto though I would have tried to sign him for longer, but in reality this is great for the Maple Leafs.
