do nhl players ever get star struck playing against other nhl players? like did auston matthews fan girl when he played against sidney crosby for the first time???
There is a video somewhere on the internet in which Auston Matthews has an out-of-body-experience when he sees Sidney Crosby at the All Star Game in 2017.
Not even on the ice. In some dingy corridor in the arena. He walks past and you can literally see him internally go “Okay, keep it cool Matty, but that’s Sidney motherfucking Crosby walking right past you. Ohmigodohmigodohmigod!”
So, what I’m trying to say is: Yes.
