Leafs superstar Auston Matthews made national headlines several weeks ago after making like a ref and pointing to the net after scoring. Matthews had a goal wiped out a shift before due to goaltender interference. So he scored again minutes later and made sure everyone in the entire arena knew it was a good goal.
Matthews repeated the goal celebration with Jack Eichel at the NHL All-Star Game, and now I’m happy to report you can do the celly now as Matthews on NHL18 too. During the most recent NHL18 roster update, video game developers assigned a previously created custom celebration to Digi Auston and it’s great.
Check it out.

Yes, this is fantastic.
Leafs reporter Jeff Veillette was the first to point out the news.

To get Digi Auston to start pointing, just press Y/Triangle after scoring.
I think others in the EA NHL community have said that the celebration was already in the game as a custom celly, but EA's recent update just mapped it to Auston's character so it's the default when he presses Y/Triangle.

I will never get sick of this.
