With all of the focus and attention on Toronto Maple Leafs superstar Auston Matthews the past few weeks, you’ll excuse him if he’s getting a little irritated with all of the questions about his health.
With Matthews missing six consecutive games earlier this month with a mysterious “upper body injury”, speculation has run rampant on what exactly it was that ailed the 20-year-old. In fact, when Leafs reporter Kristen Shilton asked Matthews about his health last night, it was clear that he was more than a little annoyed.
That sounds like an awfully polite way of saying, “mind your own business” or more to the point, “f*ck off!” Again, it’s hard now to feel bad for the kid. Yes, he’s a supreme talent, but he’s still just a kid forced to deal with the pressures of a hockey crazy city like Toronto.
