Craig Anderson and Auston Matthews will always be connected by Matthews first regular-season NHL game in which the Toronto Maple Leafs centre scored four goals on the Ottawa Senators netminder.

It was a special moment for Matthews that night on Oct. 12, 2016"he did make NHL history after all"but it turns out its a night Anderson can also look back at fondly.

In fact, Anderson told Postmedias Bruce Garrioch Friday that he kept the stick he used in the game as a memento and that he had the 2016 first-overall pick sign it.

I had the stick lying around and I thought, Maybe I should get it signed, and, the next time [the Maple Leafs] were in town, he signed it for me, Anderson said.

Matthews didnt merely sign his name beside a #34 though. The reigning Calder Trophy winner took a friendly jab at Anderson.
