Toronto Maple Leafs star Auston Matthews will miss the first three games of the season as he continues to recover from wrist surgery.

Head coach Sheldon Keefe said Monday that the 24-year-old center is unavailable this week. Toronto opens the season Wednesday at home against Montreal, then travels to Ottawa on Thursday before hosting the Senators on Saturday.

Matthews, who led the NHL with 41 goals in 52 games last season, enters his sixth season with 199 career goals. He has 152 assists and 351 points in 334 games since Toronto drafted him No. 1 overall in 2016.
