TAMPA, Fla. —star Matthews is an extremely fashion-conscious athlete, especially in hockey. Matthews stated that he kept his look casual at Tuesday's NHL Awards. For him, this meant wearing Gucci.
Matthews was awarded the Hart Trophy for the NHL's most valued player. This award is voted by the Professional Hockey Writers Association and the Ted Lindsay Award, which is voted by the NHL Players Association.
He accepted the award without tie and with an open shirt.
“They suggested that we could be casual. I don’t love wearing a tie, if you’re being truthful. Matthews noted the Florida climate as hot.
He said, “Trying to keep it casual tonight.” Let the chest air out a bit. It's sticky outside.”
Matthews wore Gucci from head to toe. However, he was questioned by Canadian media about his jacket.
Were those maple leafs?
Matthews stated that the Gucci trademark is “just little bees”.
Auston Matthews' bees were thought to be Maple Leafs by some.
