Playing career[edit]

Matheson started his junior career in the Quebec Midget AAA league playing with the Lac St. Louis Lions from 2009–2011.[1] Matheson then left to join the Dubuque Fighting Saints of the USHL where he led all defencemen in scoring in 2011–12. He then committed to play for Boston College of the NCAA starting in 2012–13. He cited his motivation for leaving his native Quebec was the ability to develop better as a player in the USHL and in the NCAA.[2] Following his freshman year at Boston College, Matheson was named to Hockey East's All-Rookie Team.[3] For his sophomore campaign, Matheson earned All-First Team honors in the Hockey East conference[4] as well as All-Second Team East Honors in the NCAA as determined by the AHCA.[5] He also decided on April 30 to remain at Boston College for the 2014–15 season amid rumors of him leaving school to sign with his drafted team, the Florida Panthers.[6] On May 8, he was named team captain for the 2014–15 season.
