MAN ROCKET (Per Urban Dictionary)
In hockey, a male player whose physical appearance and on-ice skills combined cause men and women alike to become aroused.
Matthews was one of four NHL stars listed in Sports Illustrated, Fashionable 50, a list of fifty of the most stylish professional athletes....the other NHLer's to make the list were PK Subban, Evander Kane and Henrik Lundqvist. Featured in the July 29–August 5, 2019 issue of Sports Illustrated, the Fashionable 50 list was selected by a panel of stylists, fashion editors and executives and other influencers across the sports and fashion industries.
Known for his keen interest in fashion, Toronto Maple Leafs star Auston Matthews has not shied away from going big with his attire....something that captivated his mind while playing in Switzerland and allowed him to experiment with different styles and trends.
So in the little more reserved and traditional NHL hockey world, Matthews is leading the new generation of players bringing a fresh style perspective to the league. Hats off to Auston, it's inspiring to see a Man Rocket embrace self-expression and creativity in such a way that is it's genuine, honest, and often times showcases the lighter side of the game.
Keep crushin' it Matts!
