Devils Draft Name With History: Matteau

    The New Jersey Devils used their 2012 first round entry draft pick (29th overall) to select (LW/C) Stefan Matteau.

    Stefan is the son of Stephane - yes, the Matteau with a once horrible connotation for Devils fans (1994).   The Devils team history since that terrible time is something Rangers fans could only wish for.   However, there are sure to be some fans still bitter.

    Remember: "THEY SCORE! HENRIQUE!! IT'S OVER!!!"; Stanley Cups in 1995, 2000, and 2003; great playoff runs to make the Cup Final in 2001 and 2012 (when they crushed the Rangers in the Eastern Conference Finals to advance).

    The negative memory of the Matteau name is long gone.   Some Rangers fans are delusional, but Stefan will bring only positive feelings for his last name to Devils fans.
