Welcome To Toronto Auston Matthews

from Kristen Shelton of TSN,

The media scrum tracking Auston Matthews at the first day of Toronto Maple Leafs Development Camp was so large, it had to be broken into two groups.

There were twice as many TV cameras there to film him (eight) as the actual number of on-ice drills he went through (four). For just 12 minutes.

And to the surprise of many Leaf fans on social media, Matthews is wearing No. 63 at this week’s development camp and not his usual No. 34, which was last worn by James Reimer.

Welcome to Toronto.

“This is the hockey Mecca of the world,” the 18-year old told reporters at the MasterCard Centre. “With that comes a lot of media and a lot of pressure and stuff like that, but it’s definitely something you want to embrace.”

Keep those elbows sharp when dealing with the TO media, Auston.

I predict this is the pinnacle of the Mathews/T.O. media relationship. It’s all downhill from here.
