Matthew John Fraser (born May 20, 1990) is a Canadian professional ice hockey left wing. He is currently playing for the Edmonton Oilers organization in the National Hockey League (NHL). He has previously played in the NHL for the Boston Bruins and Dallas Stars.
On November 17, 2010, the Dallas Stars signed Fraser as a free agent to a three-year entry level contract. Fraser started the 2011–12 season playing with the Stars' top American Hockey League affiliate, the Texas Stars, where he scored 21 goals in his first 40 games. Fraser was leading his AHL team in scoring when, on January 24, 2012, he was called up to the Dallas Stars to make his NHL debut. After one game he was returned to Texas and finished with a franchise high 37 goals, second in the league. On February 25, 2013, he scored his first career NHL goal against the Nashville Predators with Pekka Rinne in net.
On July 4, 2013, Fraser was included in a trade between the Stars and Boston Bruins which sent Loui Eriksson to Boston and Tyler Seguin to Dallas in a seven-player deal. Boston traded Seguin, Rich Peverley and Ryan Button to Dallas for Eriksson, Fraser, Joe Morrow and Reilly Smith.
On May 7, 2014, Fraser was recalled by Boston to make his NHL playoff debut the following day where he scored the overtime winner, giving the Bruins a 1-0 win over the Montreal Canadiens to even the Eastern Conference Semifinals series 2-2.
Fraser was claimed off waivers by Edmonton on December 29, 2014.
