Toronto Maple Leafs superstars Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner will take their talents to the theatre when they debut as Cannon Dolls at The National Ballet of Canada's 'The Nutcracker.'

Matthews lauds Leafs equipment manager's 'third assist' Auston Matthews stole the show with two goals and an assist in his return to the lineup Wednesday night, but an unlikely source provided another crucial helper that didn't show up in the boxscore.

So, what's the price to witness the young Leafs in the ballet? About the same as it is to see the duo lace them up at Scotiabank Arena, as tickets currently start at CA$85.

Their performance is scheduled for Dec. 19 at Toronto's Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts.
