June 2022 – Matier was the backbone of the 67’s blueline this season. Named an alternate captain, Head Coach Dave Cameron relied on him to be a difference-maker, and that he was. His expected time on ice per game was close to 23 minutes, the most by far on Ottawa. Although his offensive upside remains limited, he is a reliable player on the back end and will be a long-term project for the Predators’ development team. Curtis Rines

October 2021 – The Predators have announced that Matier has been signed to a three-year, entry level contract. Curtis Rines

August 2021 – In the fourth round Nashville selected Matier who is a defensive defenseman through and through. As he returns to the OHL this year with the Ottawa 67’s after a canceled season, he will look to prove that he has the ability to contribute offensively as well. Curtis Rines
