Auston Matthews took a shot to the gonads on Thursday and gave reporters a chuckle about it in his post-game presser.

Matthews In Good Spirits After Taking a Shot in the Groin



Taking a Carter Verhaeghe shot to the groin, Auston Matthews chances of having kids may have been crushed but not his spirit. You'll have to do better than that, Florida.

After the Leafs' 6-2 win over the Panthers, Matthews gave his post-game presser sitting down, joking that standing just wasn't in the cards this evening.


"I hope you guys don't mind but I'm sitting down for this one," he joked after taking a puck in the family jewels.



Fortunately, no serious injury was caused to the Leafs' superstar. Matthews has dealt with several minor injuries over the past couple of seasons, most notably a wrist issue which persisted for the better part of a year.
