North Melbourne ruckman Todd Goldstein was “out of this world” in Saturday night’s 86-point belting of Port Adelaide, according to David King.
Goldstein racked up 34 disposals at 88.2 per cent efficiency, 28 hit outs, 17 score involvements, nine clearances, six inside 50s, two goal assists and a goal in a career-best performance.
The 31-year-old’s future beyond this season remains unclear with St Kilda heavily linked to the unrestricted free agent.
King, a two-time North Melbourne premiership player, says the veteran Roo's stocks have risen significantly after his stunning display against the Power.
“I know Ben Brown cashed in large … but the game of Goldstein was just out of this world,” he told SEN’s Whateley.
“It was like he was Marcus Bontempelli all of a sudden. The tap was the tap but then he was following up – he was just embarrassing them.
“His stocks have gone through the roof. I don’t know whether he’s staying, going or whether they can come to that financial arrangement, but if he’s leaving, you’d want to be getting something super in return.”
Goldstein hasn’t missed a game in 2019, averaging 17 touches, 34 hit outs and 2.8 marks per game.
He’s played 233 games in the blue and white since debuting in Round 15, 2008.
