The Montreal Canadiens have waived Stefan Matteau.
With just 56 games of NHL action, only 12 of which with Montreal, since being drafted in the first round by New Jersey in 2012, one would reasonably suspect that Matteau does not offer any fantasy value. Mon, Oct 3, 2016 03:25:00 PM

The 22-year-old has one goal and two points in 32 games this season. He has a minus-13 rating in 2015-16. His overall game still needs a lot of work.

Stefan Matteau has been traded to the Montreal Canadiens from the New Jersey Devils for Devante Smith-Pelly.

Matteau was just called up after a conditioning stint as he suffered a facial fracture two weeks ago in practice. Matteau has only one goal this season so he is not a great fantasy player by any means and won't be in the future, but he could slot into a bottom-six role with the Canadiens.

Stefan Matteau is back with the New Jersey Devils.

He recently completed a one-game conditioning loan after recovering from a facial fracture. Matteau has one goal in 20 games this season with New Jersey.

Stefan Matteau (facial fracture) is on the injured reserve list.

Stefan Matteau (facial fracture) should be able to skate on Tuesday.

Matteau hasn't been on the ice since he was struck by the puck during Friday's practice. It's not clear if he'll be in the Devils' lineup on Tuesday, but he has been given medical clearance to play as long as he wears a full shield.

Stefan Matteau is out of action after suffering a facial fracture in practice Friday.

The injury will not require surgery but it may take a big of time for Matteau to feel comfortable enough to play. This news shouldn't affect your fantasy team as Matteau has only one goal in 20 games so if he is on your roster, perhaps hockey is not your sport of preference.

Stefan Matteau will be scratched from Saturday's match with Carolina.

We're up against the turn of the calendar and Matteau, who has been with the Devils all season, has seen just 13 games so far. Suffice it to say, he does not appear to have much of a role with the team at this time.

Stefan Matteau dressed for warmups but will be a healthy scratch on Friday against Detroit.

Matteau has only one goal in 12 games and has no fantasy value at this time. The former first round pick could have fantasy value down the line in a year or two.
