JUly 2013 - Corrente has 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: D-

Corrente will never be a valuable offensive asset but will block shots and earn penalty minutes via fighting majors if he can find a regular spot in the lineup.



Matt Corrente throws a solid hit on Brandon Dubinsky, something he does very often.

... I've always liked Matt, but as you said... he's been passed by a few guys, Urbom being the one that fills Matt's role the most... He needs outta Jersey where he can be a regular #6.

... The problem with Corrente is that he's been passed over by Urbom and Taormina while there's also Gelinas and Merrill on the way, not to mention Larsson on the big club. I don't like his chances in NJ and he's injured too often to really make his mark. He'd be lucky to have a career similar to Jim Vandermeer, which would actually be decent in roto formats.
