Wolves Stefan Matteau can bring much more

Ever since being drafted 29th overall in 2012 by the New Jersey Devils, former first round pick Stefan Matteau is in the midst of his first campaign with the Chicago Wolves. With 64 games of NHL experience to his name already, Matteau could be doing more offensively this season in Chicago.

In 2016, the Devils dealt the struggling Matteau to Montreal for a fresh start in a deal that sent Devante Smith-Pelly from the Canadiens to the Devils.

Eventually, Matteau fell out of favor with the Canadiens organization, and he was signed  by the Golden Knights as a free agent last summer.

Matteau, the son of former Ranger Stephane Matteau, failed to make Vegas’s roster out of training camp. And in 43 games this season, he’s registered 13-8-21 totals.

At 6-foot-2 and 220 pounds, Matteau’s size and skating ability should be translating into more on-ice production. If he gets closer to a point-per-game average, Matteau would be found gold for the Wolves moving forward.
