Toronto Maple Leafs forward Auston Matthews became just the third player in Maple Leafs history to hit 100 points on a season thanks to an assists on a Michael Bunting goal against the Washington Capitals.

Matthews joins Doug Gilmour and Darryl Sittler as the only players in franchise history to accomplish the feat.

Gilmour holds the all time record for a Maple Leaf with 127 points in the 1992-93 season.

Less than a week earlier, Matthews became the new Maple Leafs scoring record holder as he passed Rick Vaive for the most goals in a season in franchise history scoring No. 55 and 56 in a 4-3 victory against the Dallas Stars.
