Devils F Matteau Out To Make Most Of Second Chance

Matteau briefly made the jump from junior hockey to the big league last season, earning a spot on the roster coming out of training camp. The run lasted 17 games and resulted in one goal before the-then 18-year-old was sent back to his junior team.
The Devils hoped that Matteau could somehow take up some of the goal-scoring slack after the loss of Zach Parise to free agency. But it never panned out.
But heading into this season, he has a second chance. After all, New Jersey’s need for scorers is greater with star forward Ilya Kovalchuk’s decision to return to Russia.
This time, Matteau believes he is ready.
