r/hockey – [NHL PR] Auston Matthews is the primary U.S.-born participant in NHL historical past to attain 30 or extra targets in every of his first 5 seasons.

have to be just like how Canadians felt when Crosby went to an American workforce, besides Crosby went to a small market and Matthews is in Toronto.

Kinda loopy that Detroit has by no means had an American legend. All of our legends are Canadian, Russian, or Swedish. In reality, Larkin is already the second highest scoring American to ever play for the Wings at 286 factors and Abdelkader is third. Reed Larson is first at 570 factors so Larkin will take that crown. We’re among the finest hockey markets within the states so that you’d assume we might have had not less than among the finest American gamers play right here.
