Item Description

Goal puck scored by Toronto Maple Leafs Auston Matthews vs the Montreal Canadiens at Scotiabank Arena on Saturday, April 9th, 2022. Matthews' 57th of the season, and 256th of his NHL career, was scored on Canadiens goaltender Jake Allen and assisted by Maple Leafs Mitch Marner and Mark Giordano. With the goal, Matthews became the first player to record 50 goals in a 50 game stretch since Mario Lemiuex in 1995-96. In 2021-22, Matthews would become the first Maple Leaf to score 60 in a season, shattering the franchise single season goal record previously set by Rick Vaive (54) in 1981-82, securing his second straight Rocket Richard trophy as the NHL's leading goal scorer, joining Alexander Ovechkin and Pavel Bure as the only players to win the Rocket in back to back seasons since originally being awarded in 1998-99. On June 21st, 2022, Auston Matthews was awarded the Ted Lindsay Award, as the NHL's Most Outstanding Player judged by the NHLPA, as well as the Hart Memorial Trophy, as the NHL's Most Valuable Player throughout the 2021-22 NHL season, joining Ted Kennedy (1954-55) and Babe Pratt (1943-44) as the only Maple Leafs to win the Hart since originally being awarded in 1923-24. This goal puck was collected, taped & marked by Leafs equipment staff for milestone purposes and is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Real Sports Auction.
