Auston Matthews made Austin Powers cry.

Comedic actor and huge Toronto Maple Leafs fan Mike Myers said he was moved to tears during the rookie's stunning debut this season.

"On that four-goal night, I cried," said Myers. "Because they cut to the parents and, I was like he's 19, just starting his career. Fantastic."

The funnyman didn't appear to be joking about the waterworks, either.

Myers was taking in the Maple Leafs game against the Islanders on Sunday from the front row while sporting a No. 14 Dave Keon sweater. Keon just had his number retired at the start of this season.

"He's the man," Myers said. "What can we say? Fantastic."
