Auston Matthews Nets Hat Trick Against Devils [Highlights]

Auston Matthews started his career off in October, 2016 with a hat trick, but it took until 2020 to accomplish the feat again. Watch as he scores three against the Devils in a Maple Leafs' victory.

Matthews, who came in with eight two-goal contests this season, hadn't scored three since his four-goal outburst in his first NHL game. Linemate Mitch Marner, who assisted on two of the goals, found a bit of humor in Matthews' unusual streak.

''It's pretty funny,'' Marner said. ''We've actually talked about it a couple times, I'm sure that's a big relief.''

Matthews hit an empty netter with 80 seconds remaining in the third, delivering the hat trick and giving him 34 on the season thus far.
