  • Matthias was a healthy scratch for Sunday's 4-0 victory over St. Louis. This was the seventh straight game Matthias has been scratched, and he's only posted two assists in 18 games this season. This certainly isn't new territory for the 29-year-old as he only played in 45 games in 2016-17, and has struggled to find a consistent role throughout his time in Winnipeg. Matthias has been known for his size, intensity, and face-off skills throughout his career, but it's unlikely the Ontario native sees an increase in ice time unless injuries arise or head coach Paul Maurice wants to utilize physical presence.

  • Jets' Shawn Matthias: Expected to play Tuesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Despite blocking a shot in practice, Matthias is slated to suit up versus Arizona on Tuesday, Brian Munz of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports. Considering Matthias has just two points in 16 outings -- which were scored during the same game -- few fantasy owners would be impacted by his exclusion from the lineup. Fortunately, the forward appears to be on track to play and isn't expected to miss any time. In the event the Ontario native is a late scratch, Marko Dano would slot into the Jets' fourth line.

  • Matthias picked up his first two assists of the season in Sunday's win over the Penguins. Matthias wont turn in many multi-point efforts this season, but it's good to see him involved in the offense. The third-liner has struggled to stay healthy in recent years and has caused nightmares for fantasy owners who drafted him in deeper formats. The fact the 29-year-old has never hit 30 points in a season tells you all you need to know about his fantasy relevance.

  • Jets' Shawn Matthias: Cleared for camp
    By RotoWire Staff

    Matthias (shoulder) is ready to go for training camp and the 2017-18 campaign. With the postseason all but out of reach, the decision was made in March for Matthias to have shoulder surgery in order to give him more time to get ready for the upcoming year. The 29-year-old will no doubt be hoping the injuries are behind him after logging just 45 outings in 2016-17. Even when healthy, the winger is a bottom-six grinder who's more likely to rack up hits and blocked shots than points.

  • Matthias will undergo season-ending surgery to repair the labrum in his shoulder, TSN's Brian Munz reports. What an unfortunate end of the 2016-17 campaign for Matthias, who finishes with 12 points (eight goals, four assists) in 45 games. The burly pivot has consistently been used on the penalty kill over the years, so that's where his absence should hurt the most.
