During this year's playoffs, Matthew Tkachuk showed great potential to win the MVP title. Many people believe that the Panthers' success in the early rounds was largely due to his important goals. If the Panthers had won the Stanley Cup, Tkachuk might have had a good chance of winning the Conn Smythe Trophy.

Unfortunately, Tkachuk's hopes were crushed when he got injured in the second game of the finals. A recent update explains why Tkachuk played less in the last period of the fourth game and was absent from the fifth game.

He bravely played through two games with a broken sternum.

"Matthew Tkachuk suffered a broken sternum and played through it in games 3 & 4, but the pain was so unbearable he was shutdown for game 5.

He couldn't sit up on his own, and his brother had to help him out of bed and get ready for the game."

A True Leader

This shows that Tkachuk is a true leader who pushes his limits and refuses to give up until the pain becomes unbearable.

"He couldn't dress himself for the game. Somebody helped him get his gear on. Somebody helped him tie his skates."

Undoubtedly, the Panthers' decision to acquire Tkachuk will be remembered as one of the best trades in recent hockey history.
