When I was young, I loved to play hockey, but I never thought I’d make it to the NHL. When I was 15-years-old, I was barely five feet tall and weighed 115 pounds. I scored one goal. I was a three-year Triple A midget player. When I was 18, I hadn’t played a game in the WHL. There was no chance for me.

When I told my buddies I was going to be an NHL player, they just laughed and gave me the gears. They said, ‘C’mon Matty, you’re 17 and you’ve never played in the Dub. Forget it.’ But I wasn’t going to quit. I had this dream and I was going to do what I needed to do to see my dream through.

My dad and I were talking about what I was going to do. I thought that at best, I’d be a CIS player and that’s kind of what I was planning on doing. And then at Christmas, in my first year with the Wheat Kings, I was ranked. My dad and I were shocked, but there it was. Suddenly, I thought here was a chance I might get drafted.
