Leafs’ Star Player Matthews Suffers Painful Injury After Taking Skate Blade to Groin

Auston Matthews of the Maple Leafs is having a difficult week after taking two severe groin hits in quick succession.

Carter Verhaeghe’s attempted dump-in on Thursday in Florida initially hurt Matthews by striking him in a vulnerable spot.

Jesper Fast’s skate struck Matthews hard in the groin after a faceoff during Toronto’s game against the Hurricanes, dealing Matthews yet another injury.

Matthews went down instantly and remained on the ice for a moment, but he managed to continue playing in the game.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
