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.

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.

The New Jersey Devils have assigned Stefan Matteau to the AHL.

The 21-year-old spent most of the season in the minors but he did get a seven-game stint late in the year. The former first round pick is still young and he has some intriguing upside going forward.
Apr 12 - 2:47 PM

Stefan Matteau will be scratched for Saturday's season finale against the Florida Panthers.

Matteau played just seven games with the Devils this season, registering a goal, four penalty minutes and 17 hits. Still just 21 years old, he's seen 24 NHL games thus far, posting two goals, four points, 10 PIMs, and 42 hits.

Devils GM and interim coach Lou Lamoriello loved Stefan Matteau's game on Sunday.

It wasn't that significant from a statistical perspective as Matteau had a minus-one rating, two shots on goal, and five hits in 14:27 minutes of ice time. However, Lamoriello thought it was an "outstanding game" for the 21-year-old rookie. "I thought he had one of his best games since he's been here," Lamoriello said. "I don't think we could have asked for more than what he gave tonight. He used his size. He used his hockey smarts. He fit very well on that line. He didn't look out of place." Matteau was playing alongside Mike Cammalleri and Travis Zajac.
Mar 30 - 9:29 AM

Devils GM Lou Lamiorello thinks that Stefan Matteau is benefiting from being up with the big club and not playing rather than being in the minors.

"Absolutely. Just the practices, the meetings, the individual instructions he's getting and getting used to certain things, there's a value," Lamoriello said. "He'll get in eventually." Matteau could play as early as Sunday as the Devils take on the Ducks.
Mar 29 - 9:14 AM

Stefan Matteau, Michael Ryder, Martin Havlat and Peter Harrold will all be healthy scratches in Thursday's game against Washington.

Matteau, 21, was New Jersey's first round pick in 2012. He has played in just one game this season. Havlat and Ryder have both spent a lot of time in the press box recently. Neither one of them has any fantasy value going forward.

Stefan Matteau will probably be a healthy scratch on Thursday.

Matteau practiced on the "fifth" line during Wednesday's practice, which is likely a good indication of what will happen Thursday. Matteau made his season debut on Monday and logged 9:46 minutes of ice time. Tuomo Ruutu is projected to take his place on the fourth line.
Mar 26 - 9:40 AM

The New Jersey Devils have called up Stefan Matteau.

Matteau was summoned before Saturday's game and spent it in the press box. He has nine goals and 23 points in 57 AHL contests in 2014-15.
Mar 22 - 10:01 AM

Stefan Matteau has been outstanding of late in the AHL.

Matteau was selected 29th overall in 2012 and the Devils rushed him up in his draft season as he made the team out of camp but was not ready. Matteau struggled earlier this season going 29 games without a goal but he has turned his season around of late despite having his six game scoring streak halted on Friday night. "For a guy like me, it’s not necessarily about scoring goals," Matteau said. "I’ve kind of found the back of the net lately, but it’s not about that for me. It’s about doing the little things, using my body well, moving my feet and it just all kind of meshes together when I do the right things." He could be a good one in the NHL.
Mar 14 - 8:01 AM

GM Lou Lamiorello thinks that he rushed the progress of Stefan Matteau a couple of years ago.

Matteau was selected 29th overall in the 2012 Draft but made the Devils roster and played 17 games in the 2012-13 season before the Devils sent him to the minors on March 17. "I think we probably, and I take responsibility, rushed him a little when he came up," Lamoriello said, referring to the 2012-13 season. "Right now his progress has been outstanding. He’s getting closer and closer. He’s going to be an NHLer. He’s going to be a size and strength forward. He’s been playing extremely well. That’s why we brought him up. There was a chance for him (to play this week) and couple of our players were okay. He’s young. We bring them up too soon these days. All of them."
Jan 3 - 8:45 AM

Stefan Matteau has been returned to the minors.

Matteau didn't end up playing during his latest NHL stint. He has a goal and nine points in 26 AHL contests in 2014-15.
Jan 2 - 11:33 AM

Stefan Matteau has been called up by the New Jersey Devils.

There's no guarantee that Matteau will play on Monday, but if he does, it will likely be on the fourth line. The Devils needed to make an adjustment as Jacob Josefson is dealing with an illness.

Stefan Matteau has a goal and three assists in four games with Albany of the AHL.

The forward missed some time with an upper body injury but returned to action recently. The former first round pick, 29th overall in the 2012 Draft could get an audition at some point this season with the Devils.
