Stefan Matteau will tag in for Jiri Tlusty against Vancouver on Sunday.

This will be Matteau's eighth game of the season, and it's nearly American Thanksgiving. He has no points and little else to show for his efforts. He'll skate to the left of Stephen Gionta and Jordin Tootoo on the team's fourth line.

Stefan Matteau (flu) is feeling better after missing Saturday's contest.

"I'm still a little weak, but much better," Matteau said. "The first night I couldn't sleep at all and then I was in bed for the last couple days. I've been sick before, not really moving." Matteau described his chances of playing on Tuesday as "a possibility," so we'll have to wait and see. He has no points in seven contests.
Nov 17 - 9:18 AM

Stefan Matteau (illness) won't play in Saturday's game against Pittsburgh.

Matteau is considered day-to-day at this point. He has no points and a minus-3 rating in seven games.
Nov 14 - 6:58 PM

Stefan Matteau will be scratched against the Islanders on Tuesday.

Matteau has seen just six games so far this season and has yet to accumulate any noteworthy stats. Until he does, he should remain off your radar.
Nov 3 - 6:47 PM

Coach Hynes has elected not to make any lineup changes for Saturday's matinee against the Islanders.

Which means that Stefan Matteau and Bobby Farnham won't be playing. Neither have given much cause for interest, fantasy or otherwise.

Stefan Matteau will not play in the Devils' season opener on Friday.

Matteau was already projected to be a healthy scratch, but now we have confirmation of that. We wouldn't count on him having much, if any, fantasy value in 2015-16.
Oct 9 - 11:59 AM

Stefan Matteau will likely be a healthy scratch in the Devils' season opener on Friday.

Although Matteau made the team, we don't think he'll end up playing a big role with the Devils in 2014-15. He had 12 goals and 27 points in 61 AHL contests last season.
Oct 8 - 10:18 AM

Stefan Matteau opened the preseason by giving up the puck in what led to a goal by the New York Rangers' Brian Gibbons.

"Even if it is preseason, I don't want to be that player known for those kind of plays," Matteau said. "I just tried to bounce back and if you dwell on it for too long, next thing you know the game is over and nothing happened. The older guys there said, 'Don't worry about it, stuff happens and just keep working and work through it.'" It's particularly problematic because his roster spot is far from secure. The news isn't all bad for him though. Devils coach John Hynes liked how Matteau responded to his mistake and praised him for bring his compete level up.
Sep 22 - 5:34 AM

Stefan Matteau has inked a two-year, $1,225,000 contract with the New Jersey Devils.

Matteau had a goal in seven contests with the Devils in 2014-15. Taken with the 29th overall pick in 2012, he's not likely to ever be a major offensive threat, but he might eventually establish himself into a hard working third or second-line forward that gets some attention in fantasy leagues for contributing a mix of points and penalty minutes.
Jul 17 - 11:30 AM

Stefan Matteau could get a shot to crack the Devils lineup this season.

The Devils first round pick in the 2012 Draft, Matteau has had a few cups of coffee in the NHL as he has played 24 games thus far in his young career. He made the American World Championship team this past spring but suffered a broken finger and could not finish the tournament. Matteau finally turned it on at the AHL level late in the 2014-15 season and should have a good chance to make the Devils in 2015-16. We do not recommend him in fantasy hockey at this time.
Jul 4 - 6:50 AM

The New Jersey Devils have sent Stefan Matteau a qualifying offer.

Still just 21-years-old, Matteau would've become an UFA had the offer not been made. He hasn't quite been the scoring threat he was expected to be when taken 29th overall in 2012. Matteau has just four points in 24 sporadic NHL games, and 25 goals and 53 points for AHL Albany over the last two seasons.
Jun 25 - 8:50 PM

The injury that caused Stefan Matteau to withdraw from the 2015 World Championships in a fractured index finger.

Matteau won't need surgery. Although obviously it would be better if he was healthy, the silver lining for Devils fans is that this probably won't significantly impact his ability to be ready for the 2015-16 campaign.
May 1 - 2:54 PM

Stefan Matteau sustained an undisclosed injury while playing in the 2015 World Championships.

The nature or severity of Matteau's injury aren't clear yet, but whatever it is, it's serious enough to warrant him flying back to the United States. He had a goal in seven contests with the Devils in 2014-15.
May 1 - 11:21 AM

Stefan Matteau will join Team USA in the 2015 World Championships.

Matteau had 12 goals and 27 points in 61 AHL games in 2014-15. He also played in seven games with New Jersey and scored one goal over that span. This is a great opportunity for him to get some additional experience playing with some of the best players in the world.
