Auston Matthews Expected To Play Monday Night

from Kristen Shilton of TSN,

Auston Matthews waited until he was ready. Finally, that time has come.

The Maple Leafs’ star anticipates making his season debut on Monday, when Toronto hosts the New York Rangers. It’s been a long road for Matthews, from offseason wrist surgery on Aug. 13 to admitting he hadn’t reached his goal of being 100 per cent healthy by the Leafs’ opener last Wednesday.

Sitting out the Leafs’ first three games wasn’t an easy choice, but it’s one Matthews knows can pay off.

“It's been good to just stay patient and make sure I'm feeling fully confident, which [after] taking a little bit of extra time I absolutely do,” Matthews said after the Leafs’ practice on Sunday. “I'm pumped. It’s been not a lot of fun watching. I've been itching to get back in.”
