ELITE SNIPER AUSTON MATTHEWS CASHES IN WITH CCM HOCKEY

Auston Matthews earns a living making the league's top goalies look pedestrian with his quick release, ridiculous accuracy and unpredictability. It only makes sense to have the 22-year-old partner with one of the leading manufacturers of hockey apparel and equipment in the world, and on Friday, that's exactly what CCM Hockey and Auston Matthews announced.

Characterized by CCM Hockey as "one of the best, boldest and unique players in the game", Matthews is very excited to have signed with the company, whom he identifies as a very forward-thinking and cutting-edge organization. There seems to be a great deal of mutual respect and admiration between the two parties, which Matthews cites as a fundamental reason for the partnership.

"CCM has always been a company I've admired, and I am excited to partner with them," said Matthews. "Their dedication to innovation and their forward-thinking approach with their products is something that really resonates with me. I am looking forward to what they will come up with next."

Rick Blackshaw, CEO of CCM Hockey is excited at the prospect of working with another one of the game's truly elite players.

"The timing couldn't be better as the greatest sport on Earth finally resumes. Auston is about performance, commitment and style; and together we will be fearless game changers."

Big news for Matthews and CCM Hockey ahead of the Leafs' qualifying round matchup against the Columbus Blue Jackets, which is set to commence on Sunday, August 2nd.
