Observations:

 

October 2014 – Corrente signed a one year, two-way deal with Tampa Bay back in July of this year. Once a somewhat highly touted prospect in New Jersey’s system, Corrente is very likely a career minor leaguer at this point. If he ever did play in the NHL, it would be as a spare defenseman and he wouldn’t add any value to your fantasy team, even in the deepest of leagues. Randall Buschmann

 

July 2013 – Corrente signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Carolina Hurricanes. The deal will likely have little or no effect on Corrente’s outlook. Rex Doty

 

April 2013 – Unfortunately for Matt Corrente, the former first round selection (2006) has battled injuries for most of his professional career, the latest being a recent shoulder injury that limited him to just 11 AHL games. His durability remains a legit concern considering his style of play is as a physical aggressive defenseman. Corrente doesn’t own much upside offensively but he could eventually serve as a contributor in the penalty minute category. Brendan Ross

 

February 2013 – Corrente’s season ended in early December as he injured his shoulder in a fight. He is running out of opportunities to become a regular NHL player. Jason Banks

 

November 2012 – Corrente was re-signed by the Devils and continues to play the tough minutes for Albany of the AHL. Jason Banks

 

May, 2012– Corrente is on the very cusp of the NHL, but will be in tough to crack the lineup in New Jersey. He is only 6 feet, yet he is a physical and stand up player. Last off-season as an RFA, the Devils did tender him a qualifying offer to keep his rights but this off-season keeping his rights is not a sure thing. Should he finally find a roster spot, he will be a versatile low pairing defenseman that can jump up to a fourth line as needed. At this point has been a ’miss’ as a first round pick.

 

Fantasy Outlook: F

Corrente shouldn’t be on your fantasy radar at any point.
