The next destination of Auston Matthews identified by Vegas? We are in for a surprise!

Even though there is one more year left in Auston Matthews' contract, many hockey fans are wondering if the Toronto Maple Leafs' star forward will continue his association with the Ontario team beyond the 2023-2024 season.

He will become an unrestricted free agent and despite some rumors, it would be quite surprising if number 34 left the Leafs during the summer but, as reported by Samuel Doiron, from the site Habsolumentfan.com, the bets are open regarding a possible destination for Auston Matthews.

It's on this topic that the daily Toronto Sun showed interest, as bookmakers from BetOnline.ag website took a gamble to predict Matthews' potential destination, should he ever leave the Maple Leafs.

While many people might think he will eventually join the Arizona Coyotes, it's rather with the Chicago Blackhawks that bettors have chosen as a possible destination for Matthews.

Let's just say that the fact they won the lottery and will likely draft a certain Connor Bedard comes into play in this equation.

As for the Coyotes, they come in second, followed by the New York Rangers, the Los Angeles Kings, and the Vegas Golden Knights.

It's all well and good to predict with which team Auston Matthews could potentially align in the near future, but it should be noted that he could be very expensive if he ever decided to test the free agent market next summer, and he could become the first player in NHL history to sign a deal with an average salary of $15 million, annually.

As they say in the casino, the bets are placed, no more bets!
