Bennedict Mathurin has CH tattooed on his heart

Bennedict Mathurin already dominates on the floors of the NBA, but the young 20-year-old athlete has never forgotten his other passion: hockey.

Having grown up in Montreal North, the Quebecer played hockey for a long time, in addition to supporting his favorite team: the Montreal Canadiens. Mathurin even made the rounds of the web on Saturday, November 19, when he arrived at his team’s game against the Orlando Magic with a Bleu-Blanc-Rouge jersey on his back.

“I’ve been a fan since I was a kid. I grew up playing hockey, launched Mathurin, whose remarks were taken up by the site of the Canadian. I even remember my mother telling me that she would like me to play for the Canadiens.

Mathurin played in the defender position when he put on the skates. PK Subban, the former defender of the Canadiens now retired, was also a player he particularly liked.

If there’s one reason in particular why the basketball player couldn’t grant his mother’s wish, it’s because he was having trouble with a basic element of hockey: braking.

“I was still a good player. I was skating pretty fast and I was still big and strong, but I just didn’t know how to slow down with my skates, so I was always running into the boards,” added Mathurin. I even broke the Bantam window once. I blew it up.”

The Pacers representative therefore represents his favorite team as best he can, wearing his jersey from time to time before a game. He could possibly do it again, since his teammates Oshae Brissett and Andrew Nembhard, both natives of Toronto, told him that they would eventually reply by putting on a Maple Leafs jersey.
