Matier makes quick, smart, simple decisions with the puck on his stick. He is a decent skater who is able to pick up speed through his crossovers, though one thing he could improve on is getting lower to the ice. He is good at stepping up at the blueline to deny zone entries. Sticks to his opponents to try and knock them off the puck. He has good gap control and consistently keeps opposing players to the outside, limiting their chance of getting a good shot off. Will step up in the neutral zone to intercept passes or disrupt opposing rushes before they become too dangerous, displaying a nice amount of range. He battles hard in the corners and is pretty good at winning puck battles. He is also good at clearing the front of his net of any threats and boxing out opponents from getting to the dangerous areas in the slot. In transition he does a good job at recognizing the play as it unfolds and is able to hit teammates with accurate passes in stride. In the offensive zone he has a hard, accurate shot that he is able to get on net with ease. He is also able to find teammates in the slot for scoring chances, though that likely won’t ever be a major selling point of his game. Sits back and watches the play a little more than you’d like at times, and doesn’t push the pace of play very much up ice. For such a big defender he’s not overly nasty or hard to play against. Can have trouble handling the puck in tight traffic. Overall, Matier is a solid defenseman who does a good job at limiting the other team’s scoring chances. He still has to round out his overall game, and he likely won’t ever be much of an offensive contributor, but he could eventually turn out to be valuable pick for a team in the later rounds of the draft.
