The young superstar politely tells everyone to, “back off.”

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.
