Matt Fraser has a chance to crack the Bruins' roster out of training camp, but is in a tough competition trying to make a deep team that's built to win and has a few other prospects on the cusp.

Fraser's body is NHL ready at 6’2 and 202 pounds. The 24 year old also boasts a terrific shot can play tough, especially below the faceoff dots. But if the physically imposing winger can't catch on full-time with the Bruins, he'll likely receive top minutes in the AHL as well as an NHL call-up depending on injuries.

Matt Fraser suffered a broken foot during the playoffs.

Fraser played through the injury, scoring a goal and an assist in four games. He might require surgery. Assuming he's fine in time for training camp though, he'll be worth keeping an eye on as he competes for a spot on the team's opening game roster.

Matt Fraser followed up his memorable NHL playoffs debut with an assist in Boston's 4-2 victory on Saturday.

Matt Fraser, who scored the overtime winning goal Thursday night, has earned another start.

The 23-year-old winger, who spent most of the season in the AHL, will suit up Saturday night when the Bruins face off against the Canadiens at the TD Center. It will be tough for Fraser to top what he did in Game 4, though.

Coach Claude Julien was pleased with Matt Fraser's performance in Thursday's 1-0 overtime win against Montreal in Game 4.

"I liked his game. Not because he scored but his whole game," said Julien. "He seemed to be strong on the puck, making some good decisions, turning pucks over and seemed to be skating well. It was nice to see that happen, but the GM (Peter Chiarelli) probably deserves that credit. He's the one that called him up." Fraser was making his first career NHL playoff appearance and scored the game-winning goal in overtime.
May 9 - 7:13 AM

Matt Fraser's goal at 1:17 of overtime broke a 0-0 deadlock and gave the Bruins a 1-0 win over Montreal Thursday night.

Fraser's buried a loose puck in the crease that eluded the grasp of goaltender Carey Price to even the series at 2-2 as they head back to Boston for Game 5. Carl Soderberg and Johnny Boychuk drew assists on the tally.
May 8 - 10:49 PM

Matt Fraser scored for Boston in a 4-2 loss to Los Angeles on Thursday.

He has two goals in 14 appearances this season, while averaging just 9:39 of ice time.
Jan 10 - 7:40 AM

Matt Fraser has scored the most goals in the AHL over the last three seasons, so the 23-year-old winger knows what is expected of him during any stint at the NHL level.

But the goals haven’t fallen for Fraser quite yet after five games with the Bruins as a reinforcement amid frontline injuries, and he’s gone pointless with just six shots on net in the aforementioned five games. "I think I’ve played okay, but I’m not content. Obviously I’m looking for a little more production out of myself," said Fraser. "I think I’ve been doing the little things right. Chipping pucks in, and chipping pucks out. I’ve been making sure I’m in the right spots on the ice in both zones. But I’m a guy that knows what he needs to do to succeed, and knows what I can do out there. When I don’t get the results I’m looking for, I’m probably the hardest person on myself."

Matt Fraser picked up his first career NHL fight Thursday night against Buffalo.

He dropped the gloves with Marcus Foligno in the first period. "I'll never be mistaken for a fighter, but anything I can do to help stay in the lineup or help get the momentum our way, I'm definitely willing to do that," said Fraser. "I definitely don't want to be known as a one-dimensional player. Those top-six guys can do it all. You look at Looch and he can literally do it all. And (Jarome) Iginla can do it all. It's something you strive for." Fraser has skated in five games with Boston this season, where he has no points and six shots.

Matt Fraser has signed a one-year, two-way contract with Dallas.

Matt Fraser and Jordie Benn were healthy scratches for the Stars on Sunday.

While Fraser has only one assist in nine games after scoring 33 goals in the AHL this season but coach Glen Gulutzan has been quite impressed with the youngster. "I've watched Matty quite a bit, and he's not going to wow you with 100 different things," Gulutzan said. "He's a quick-strike guy, and he hasn't had a lot of opportunities to bury pucks. He has an incredible shot and incredible release, and he needs to find those areas in the NHL to get his shot away. That's part of the learning process." Fraser could be someone to look at in a couple of years in fantasy hockey as he knows how to score.
