CAMROSE, AB: (June 28, 2023) Kodiaks Head Coach & GM announced today the signing of defencemen Carter Matthews. Matthews joins the Kodiaks from the Calgary Buffaloes organization where he was a stalwart on the back end for two seasons.
Martin believes that the addition of Matthews completes a backend that will provide at both ends of the ice this season, “Carter is a player we have had our eye on for a long time. He is poised with the puck and has shown the ability to dictate the pace of the game when he is on the ice. He is a player that checks all the boxes when you talk about his character, skill, leadership and big game experience. When you look at the make-up of our D Core, we have a strong mix of older, experienced players and with the addition of Cash Ganske and now Carter we think we have secured our back end as a strength for years to come. I am excited to get on the ice with Carter and get to work.”
Secure your season seats today and see Matthews and the Kodiaks in action at the September 16th home opener vs the Olds Grizzlys.
