Shawn Matthias will not play on Sunday in Ottawa.

There is no update yet on his condition, but we will keep you posted as the news breaks.
Dec 7 - 5:37 PM

Shawn Matthias left Saturday's game in the second period after taking an elbow to the head, and did not return.

There are fears that Matthias may have suffered a concussion and that's a shame as he was playing the best hockey of his career. Coming into the game, Matthias had four goals and six points in his last five games. Stay tuned for an update.
Dec 7 - 10:03 AM

Shawn Matthias has four goals and six points in his last five games.

That is a hot streak for anyone but for a bottom-six forward, that is white-hot. He only had five points in his first 21 games so if you put him in your lineup over the last two weeks then you deserve kudos.
Dec 6 - 9:55 AM

Shawn Matthias is on a three-game goal scoring streak.

Matthias also had an assist in Sunday's 5-3 loss to Detroit. He now has five goals and nine points in 24 contests in 2014-15.
Dec 1 - 9:26 AM

Shawn Matthias found the back of the net in a 4-3 overtime win versus Ottawa.

Matthias now has two goals and four points in 17 games this season. That's pretty much what we expected of him going into 2014-15, so naturally we don't expect him to have any fantasy value in standard leagues.
Nov 12 - 9:54 AM

Shawn Matthias scored a goal in Vancouver's 5-2 win over Colorado.

It was Matthias' first marker in 13 games in 2014-15. He has three points in 13 games this season, which means he's more or less living up to expectations.
Nov 5 - 11:08 AM

Shawn Matthias will move up to Vancouver's third line for Tuesday's game in Dallas.

He had been playing center on the fourth line, but now he'll be a left winger. Matthias, who has no points and three shots in four games, will play with Brad Richardson and Zack Kassian.
Oct 20 - 6:27 PM

Shawn Matthias centered Daniel Sedin and Nicklas Jensen on the second line Saturday.

What's amazing is that Matthias was the fourth line center on Florida, the second worst team in the NHL while on a playoff contender, he is now seeing second line minutes. Matthias has two goals and five points in 12 games since his trade from Florida. He has little fantasy value at this time.
Mar 30 - 8:14 AM

Shawn Matthias scored his first goal since his trade to the Canucks.

However, the Canucks' comeback effort against the Capitals fell short. Matthias had five shots on goal as well in 18:32 and continues to be an engaged Canuck, despite not getting the good fortune on the scoresheet.
Mar 15 - 10:47 AM

Shawn Matthias will play an increased role in the Canucks' offense going forward now that Ryan Kesler has been ruled out for a couple weeks.

Matthias, acquired earlier this month in the Roberto Luongo deal, started off playing more of a checking role on the third line. But due to Kesler's injury, the Canucks will count on Matthias to spur some offense playing a top-six role with Chris Higgins and Jannick Hansen. This is a good a chance as any for Matthias to emerge on the fantasy radar this season.
Mar 14 - 7:25 PM

Vancouver coach John Tortorella liked what he saw from newcomer Shawn Matthias in the team's embarrassing 6-1 loss to Dallas.

Acquired with Jacob Markstrom in the trade that sent goalie Roberto Luongo to the Florida Panthers on Tuesday, Matthias recorded seven shots and played 16:43 ice time. He saw some time on the wing and at center, while getting some work on the penalty kill. He also won nine of 14 draws. "I thought he played well," said Tortorella. "He was probably our best forward. He did some good things and wasn’t afraid to make a play and made some good plays. I'm really happy with his play."
Mar 8 - 11:23 AM

The Florida Panthers have traded Shawn Matthias to Vancouver.

Matthias has nine goals and 16 points in 59 games in 2013-14. This move will not alter his status as a bottom-six forward.
Mar 4 - 5:13 PM

Shawn Matthias generated two goals and one assist in Sunday's 5-3 win over the New York Islanders to cap off a successful showing this past weekend.

He compiled three goals and five points in two games after producing just two goals in his previous 20 outings. Matthias was red hot for the Panthers last year during March as well, where he racked up 11 of his 14 goals. He has nine markers and 16 points in 59 games this season.
Mar 3 - 10:39 AM

Shawn Matthias had a goal and an assist in Saturday's contest.

Matthias now has seven goals and 13 points in 58 games this season. He's been serving primarily as a fourth-line center in 2013-14.
