I'm in a very deep 18 team league and picked him up. Anyone think he stays on the roster or will he get sent back down to junior?
Given what many would "assume" to be the Devils way of operating, it seems as if he's here for the 5 games and that's it. But by the same token, he's playing enough of a role so far to say it may not be that simple to assume he's gone after his 5 games are up. The team is still waiting on Henrique to come back, and is still sitting with a surplus of D-men and a need for a top-6 (or maybe top-9) forward. There is still going to be some change in their lineup, so it remains to be seen what can be expected of Matteau's chances of sticking. I would lean towards him being sent back (as I feel the majority would, even if its not much of a majority), but the short of it is that it is still too early to tell.
