Arizona represented atop the NHL Draft.
From growing up in Scottsdale, Ariz., to the #1 Overall Pick in the 2016, NHL Draft, Auston Matthews is now a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs. Matthews’ family moved to Scottsdale when he was only an infant. He missed the 2015 NHL Draft because he missed the cutoff date of birth by two days! He is the first American-born player to be drafted #1 overall since 2007. Congrats Auston and good luck!
