'Young Mario' Matthews continues to reinvent ways to score

WASHINGTON (AP) Auston Matthews is drawing comparisons to Mario Lemieux and getting noticed by Bryce Harper amid a hot start to his second NHL season.

Last season's Calder Trophy winner as rookie of the year, Matthews went into training camp seeking to be more assertive on the ice. That has translated to five goals and three assists in his first six games and the kind of improved all-around play that makes the face of the Toronto Maple Leafs a superstar already at age 20.

"He's got a skillset that ranges from just about everything," Maple Leafs center Nazem Kadri said Tuesday. "The ceiling's the limit for Matts, and he knows he can be a great player and he already is. It's crazy to think he's (still) at such a young age."
