[Signing] Stefan Matteau 3 Year ELC With NJD

12 posts in this topic

The New Jersey Devils announced Tuesday they've signed forward Stefan Matteau, the club’s first choice (No. 29) in the 2012 NHL Draft, to an entry-level contract.

The Record reports the three-year deal pays an NHL salary of $842,500 per season for a total of $2,527,500.

"Stefan Matteau is a size and strength power forward who we consider to be one of our top prospects," Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello said.

Matteau, 18, joins the Devils' organization after spending the past two seasons with the United States Development Program. Earlier this month, he attended USA Hockey's Under-20 Junior Evaluation Camp in Lake Placid, N.Y.

The 6-2, 215-pound forward skated in 46 games for the Under-18 squad in 2011-12, tallying 15 goals, 17 assists and a team-leading 166 penalty minutes. He played for Team USA's Under-17 team in 2010-11, notching seven goals, 11 assists and 65 penalty minutes.

Matteau was a member of the United States' championship squad at the 2011 Under-18 Vlad Dzurilla tournament in Slovakia, and of the silver medal-winning team at the 2011 Under-17 World Hockey Challenge.

He played for the 2009-10 Canadian National Champion Notre Dame Hounds (Sask.) and won a gold medal with Team USA at the 2010 Four Nations Cup.

Matteau is the son of former NHL wing Stéphane Matteau.

I find it immensly ironic that the Devils drafted the son of the player who eliminated them in New Jersey in 1994 in Game 7 overtime :P

I will laugh so hard if NJD wins the draft lottery next year due to the lock out (assuming a couple of things)!

You guys know New Jersey doesn't have to forfeit their next 1st rounder, right? They have/had the choice between 2012, '13, '14, and '15. They aren't likely to pick lower than 29th again but they definitely don't have to lose next year's pick.
