Blue Jackets' Stefan Matteau: Tallies equalizer Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matteau scored a goal on five shots and added four hits in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Senators.

Matteau netted the tying goal just 29 seconds after Colin White tallied to give the Senators a lead in the third period. The first-round pick from 2012 has been productive with a point in each of his three games since he signed an NHL contract with the Blue Jackets. In that span, the 25-year-old has added 12 hits, 11 shots and a plus-1 rating.

Blue Jackets' Stefan Matteau: Inks NHL contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matteau signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Blue Jackets on Wednesday.

The 2012 first-round pick (29th overall) has struggled to find his footing in the NHL, playing just 64 games and posting seven points. He signed an AHL-only contract with Cleveland in August and has recorded 28 points over 50 games with the minor-league club. With a flurry of injuries to the Blue Jackets' forwards, Matteau will add depth to the lineup as the team keeps pace in the playoff race. He could make his Columbus debut against the Flyers on Thursday.

Golden Knights' Stefan Matteau: Signs new deal with Golden Knights
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matteau signed a new one-year deal with the Golden Knights on Monday.

The deal is of the two-way variety, which means Matteau could spend time with AHL Chicago. That's where he ended up spending the bulk of the 2017-18 season. The 24-year-old played eight games with Vegas, notching an assist and eight shots in the process.

Golden Knights' Stefan Matteau: Sent to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matteau was demoted back to AHL Chicago on Saturday, Steve Carp of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Matteau has a few stints at the top level under his belt at a young age, but the 24-year-old has yet to secure a full-time gig. While there is still time for him to develop, the big-bodied forward may never be anything more than a physical presence when he takes the ice in the NHL.

Golden Knights' Stefan Matteau: Gets called to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matteau was recalled from AHL Chicago on Monday, Steve Carp of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Matteau played five games with the Golden Knights earlier this year, picking up one assist and eight shots on goal. The 23-year-old was a first-round pick in 2012, but has yet to stick in the NHL. With Vegas dealing with injuries, Matteau may get a little playing time, but likely not enough to make a fantasy impact.

Golden Knights' Stefan Matteau: Sent down to bus league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matteau was assigned to AHL Chicago on Wednesday.

The Golden Knights used a waiver claim to pry Ryan Carpenter from the Sharks, and evidently Vegas feels he would be an immediate upgrade over Matteau, who was originally selected by the Devils with a first-round (29th overall) pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. This is probably for the better, as Matteau has only averaged 8:24 of ice time with the expansion club this season and he'd otherwise have a hard time refining his game playing so sparingly.

Golden Knights' Stefan Matteau: Recalled from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matteau was called up from AHL Chicago on Monday.

Matteau has posted five points in 19 games thus far for AHL Chicago, but hasn't played an NHL game since 2015-16 with New Jersey. The 23-year-old has a big frame and a strong shot, but will likely be used as an emergency forward while David Perron (upper body) rehabs his injury.

Golden Knights' Stefan Matteau: Sent to waiver wire
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Golden Knights placed Matteau on waivers Wednesday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Matteau hasn't appeared in an NHL contest since the 2015-16 campaign, so this move doesn't come as much of a surprise. However, the 23-year-old winger was a first-round selection in 2012, so there's still a chance he could develop into a serviceable NHL player with some more seasoning in the AHL.

Golden Knights' Stefan Matteau: Reaches one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matteau signed a one-year deal with the Golden Knights on Saturday.

Vegas is rolling the dice on a 6-foot-2, 200-pound forward who spent all of last season honing his craft with the St. John's IceCaps of the AHL. In 67 games for Montreal's minor-league affiliate, Matteau produced 25 points and a whopping 122 PIM. Remember, this is a guy the Devils had originally chosen with a first-round (29th overall) pick in the 2012 draft, so there may be plenty of untapped potential for the Golden Knights and fantasy owners alike.

Stefan Matteau: Not extended qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matteau wasn't extended a qualifying offer from the Canadiens and will become an unrestricted free agent, Renaud Lavoi of the Montreal Journal reports.

Matteau was acquired by the Canadiens in Febraury of 2016 in a trade with the Jets, but failed to get any ice time with the big club this past season. He'll look to secure a contract elsewhere prior to training camp now that he's headed to free agency, but he's not a lock to start the season at the NHL level, which will likely keep him off the radar in the majority of fantasy leagues.

Canadiens' Stefan Matteau: Wavied on Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matteau was wavied by the Canadiens on Monday in order to assign him to AHL St. John's.

Matteau, if he clears waivers, will join the IceCaps for their training camp. The 22-year-old made 32 appearances in the majors last season between New Jersey and Montreal, but only managed to notch one goal and one assist while averaging 10:05 in ice time per night. It seems likely the winger will spend the bulk of the 2016-17 campaign fine tuning his game in the minors, which means fantasy owners may want to look for other discount fantasy options.

Canadiens' Stefan Matteau: Six hits Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matteau had his best game since being acquired by Montreal in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Ducks, administering six hits in 12:45 of ice time.

A former first-round draft pick in 2012, Matteau has not made a mark in the NHL -- just six points and minus-13 in 52 career games over three-plus seasons. His unremarkable play continued following the trade until Wednesday's physical effort against the rugged Ducks. The 22-year-old is playing for a spot on next season's team; frankly, he needs to do more than he has in his first eight games as a Canadien -- more hustle, more getting to the net, more offense -- to be something other than organizational depth in the AHL ranks moving forward.

Canadiens' Stefan Matteau: Back in action Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matteau (lower body) will play Tuesday against the Panthers, Dave Peters of the Montreal Gazette reports.

Matteau is expected to slot back into a bottom-six role Tuesday against Florida, skating alongside Michael McCarron and Lucas Lessio on the Canadiens' third line. The former first-round pick has very little to offer in terms of fantasy value, as he's tallied just two points (one goal, one assist) in 25 games this season.

Canadiens' Stefan Matteau: Ruled out against Wild
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matteau will be out of the lineup Saturday against Minnesota with a lower-body ailment, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

The injury bug strikes again in Montreal, as Matteau, who has only been with the team for five games since the trade deadline, is out for at least Saturday. The 22-year-old had just tallied his first point as a Canadien on Thursday and was averaging over 10 minutes of ice time per game. With fellow winger Lars Eller (illness) also absent against the Wild, expect Lucas Lessio and Charles Hudon to slot into the depth chart.

Canadiens' Stefan Matteau: Gets first point since trade
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matteau notched his first assist of the year -- and his first point in five games with the Habs -- in Thursday's 3-2 win over Buffalo.

Somewhere, someone in an unconscionably deep fantasy league is slightly happy to see Matteau's secondary assist on Torrey Mitchell's game-winner. For most everyone else outside the 22-year-old's immediate family (and perhaps Habs fans), his exploits on the Canadiens' fourth line are of precious little interest.

Canadiens' Stefan Matteau: Debut with Montreal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matteau, recently acquired from New Jersey, made his Montreal debut in Wednesday night's 3-2 shootout loss to the Ducks.

Matteau skated at right wing on what is considered the third line, along with Sven Andrighetto and Jacob De La Rose. He had no shots and no hits, finishing at minus-1 in 8:39 of playing time. The 22-year-old former first-round pick flamed out with the Devils, scoring just three goals in 44 games in two-plus seasons and is hoping a change in scenery gives his career a boost.

Canadiens' Stefan Matteau: Traded out of Jersey
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matteau was dealt by the Devils to the Canadiens at the trade deadline Monday.

Don't expect the 22-year-old winger to enjoy a bigger role in Montreal than he did in New Jersey, where he was almost entirely pinned to the fourth line. He may be a former first-round pick, but Matteau hasn't shown much on offense at nay level of pro hockey.

Devils' Stefan Matteau: Recalled, rejoins practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matteau was recalled from his one-game conditioning loan Monday and took the ice for practice with the Devils, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

That's only slightly more interesting news for Devils fans than fantasy owners, as Matteau has generally been a fourth-liner or a scratch this year, totaling just a single goal in 20 games.

Devils' Stefan Matteau: Activated from IR and loaned to Albany
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matteau (face) was activated from injured reserve and assigned to AHL Albany for conditioning work Saturday.

Matteau will spend a game or two in Albany before he figures to be ready for a return to New Jersey. With no 23-man roster limit after Monday, look for him to be called up some time after then.

Devils' Stefan Matteau: Placed on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matteau (face) has been placed on injured reserve, Rich Chere of The Star-Ledger reports.

Matteau's move to injured reserve opened up a roster spot for John Merrill (arm) on Friday. The veteran winger presents little fantasy upside even when healthy and he's only drawn into 20 games this campaign.
