No, I don't believe he is locked in.

I agree as I doubt he sticks this year if that is how they plan on using him. I could very well be wrong, and they just want to bring him along slowly knowing that he makes the team better as a crasher and banger on a limited role...but I think he would be better suited in the Q finishing strong, scoring goals, and playing more than 7-9 minutes a night.

I dont think Matteau will be available to the US next year as I would imagine he sticks full time with the Devils and they wont let him come play. Not a gigantic loss, but I expected Matteau to play a top 9 role for this team like Biggs did and it will thin out our overall depth losing him, Galchenyuk, and possibly Jones and Trouba as well.

Interesting that if there is no NHL lockout we might have been without Matteau (who didn't make the team anyway I realize), Galchenyuk and now JT Miller was just called up.
