Evgeni Malkin vs Auston Matthews

Created by: MikeyThePensFan
Initial Creation Date: Nov 7, 2019
Published: Nov 8 at 12:42 pm
Team: 2019-20 Pittsburgh Penguins
Team Explanation
During Auston Matthews' draft year, there were many experts who said he was a very similar type of player to Malkin. Big, dominant and more defensively responsible.

Now, the real question is, who is better?

I will only compare them based off their first 3 seasons since that is only fair; Matthews hasn't hit his prime whereas Malkin is past it.

So, Matthews has 205 points (111 goals) in 212 regular season games (0.96 PPG). In the playoffs, he has 10 goals and 13 points in 20 games (0.65 PPG).

Malkin in 242 regular season games scored 115 goals and 304 points (1.256 PPG). In the playoffs, he had 24 goals and 62 points in 49 games (1.26 PPG).

So, who's better?

I think Matthews is a Insanely skilled guy & a top 10 player in the NHL, like that wrist shot is other worldly bro.
But Geno is the better player hands down and I think it comes down to his compete level bc Matthews just doesn't seem to have that fire to win like Geno does
