Auston Matthews took part in a special Maple Leafs jersey reveal to kick off the NHL's partnership with Fanatics as their new outfitter.

The video, which can be found below, features Matthews going through some of the iconic jerseys of the past, including the vintage Washington Capitals jersey that Alex Ovechkin scored his incredible goal while twisting around on the ice, a special Danny Briere jersey from his time in Buffalo and the jersey from Patrick Kane's 1,000th career NHL game in Chicago.
All of these players hold a special significance for Matthews, as they were the 3 players he idolized growing up.
His reaction, though, to seeing his own Fanatics jersey for the first time, was special.
"It never gets old looking at this," Matthews said as he opened the box and pulled out the new blue and white home jersey from the special Fanatics box placed in front of him by the seamstress who created it.

The Fanatics jerseys replace the former Adidas Adizero jerseys that had been previously used by the league for several years.
Seeing Matthews' face light up when he seems the Maple Leafs jersey is just further evidence that he truly loves being a Maple Leaf and everything that comes with it.
Matthews is set to begin the 1st year of his new 4-year deal this summer, which carries a $13.25M cap hit, only a modest increase from his previous $11.64M cap hit.
