FanDuel Sportsbook now features a prop for Toronto Maple Leafs goalscoring sensation Auston Matthews to score 70 goals in the regular season.
If Matthews mastered the feat it would be iconic as there has not been a 70-goal goalscorer since the 1992/93 season when both Alexander Mogilny and Teeme Selannie managed it.
Matthews is on a hot streak and has scored 51 goals in his last 50 games.

Currently, FanDuel Sportsbook offers a support of over 69.5 goals for Matthews (+500).
The Leafs have ten games left on their schedule and have already secured a playoff berth.
Matthews would need to score 12 goals in the remaining ten games to break the 70-goal plateau.
Matthews has the skills, but there are concerns he will be rested as the end of the regular season nears – and rightly so.
Five of the Leafs’ remaining games are against defensively inept non-playoff teams, so it wouldn’t be a shock to see him score multiple goals in those games.
