Can Auston Matthews score 60 goals again?
According to BetOnline.ag, which put his over/under line at 56.5 goals, the odds are good that the Toronto Maple Leafs sniper at least gets close. That is, if he doesn’t spend too much time on the injured list.

Matthews, who is the two-time reigning Rocket Richard Trophy winner, finished with 60 goals in 73 games last season — a 67-goal pace had he not missed any games. A year earlier, he had 41 goals in 52 goals, which was a 65-goal pace in a full season.
The 25-year-old, who missed the start of last season with a wrist injury, is healthy. But keep in mind that the last time he played in all 82 games was in his rookie season.
