There is another article about him at Stromgren's Blog, including quotes of him and his coach:

Quote:
Im very proud of Matt and how patient he was through this whole signing process, Bemidji State head coach Tom Serratore said. He led us into the first season in the WCHA and the first season in the Sanford Center. He accomplished a lot of things at BSU and now its great to see he is fortunate enough to sign with one of the most successful, most visible franchises in the National Hockey League.

[...]

He will be just fine in the NHL, Serratore said. Even though its a big jump, he has the maturity, talent and is an extremely competitive player. His game is going to transfer nice and he will be able to pick things up quickly. He has the intangibles other players dont have.
