Matthew Frattin (born January 3, 1988) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player. He currently plays with the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League (AHL). Frattin previously played for the Los Angeles Kings and Columbus Blue Jackets in the NHL. In his senior season of college hockey he was honored as the WCHA player of the year.
Frattin was born in Edmonton, Alberta. He played junior hockey for the Fort Saskatchewan Traders of the AJHL during the 2006–07 season. After playing junior hockey in Alberta he was selected by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the fourth round (99th overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. He then enrolled in the University of North Dakota in 2007.
Frattin scored a key goal in North Dakota's playoff victory over their rival Minnesota in the 2010 WCHA playoffs. At the beginning of the 2010 season Frattin won the team's fitness competition after working out extensively during the off season. In 2010 he also made headlines after the WCHA suspended him for one game due to a hit that he delivered against Minnesota.
In the 2010–11 season Frattin was very successful, leading the NCAA Mens Division I in goals scored. In his senior season Frattin scored more goals than he did in his first three seasons combined. His 36 total goals was the third highest single season goal total in Division I college hockey in the previous 10 years, and the most since Minnesota's Ryan Potulny had 38 in 2005-06. He also accomplished 8 game and 9 game goal scoring streaks during the season. He played a key role in North Dakota's success in the playoffs, scoring two game-winning goals in the WCHA playoffs en route to a Frozen Four appearance. He was the WCHA player of the year and was selected as a Hobey Baker Award finalist. On April 8, 2011, Frattin signed a two-year entry level contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs. He played in his first NHL game on April 9, 2011. His first NHL goal was scored on November 19, 2011 against Tomas Vokoun of the Washington Capitals.
On July 1, 2012 the Toronto Maple Leafs signed Frattin to a two-year contract.  On June 23, 2013, Frattin was traded to the Los Angeles Kings with Ben Scrivens and a conditional second-round draft pick in exchange for goaltender Jonathan Bernier. On March 5, 2014, Frattin was traded by the Kings to the Columbus Blue Jackets along with a second-round pick and a conditional third-round pick for All-Star Marian Gaborik.
Frattin was traded from the Blue Jackets back to the Toronto Maple Leafs on July 1st, 2014 for Jerry D'Amigo and 2015 conditional 7th round pick.  He was then immediately signed to a two-year contract by the Leafs.
