Matia Marcantuoni (born February 22, 1994) is a Canadian ice hockey player. He is currently playing for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins in the American Hockey League (AHL) as a prospect of the Pittsburgh Penguins of the National Hockey League (NHL).
Marcantuoni was the captain of Team Ontario when it won the gold medal at the 2011 World U-17 Hockey Challenge, and he was also a member of the Canadian Under-18 team which won the 2011 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament.
A shoulder injury in his draft year hurt Marcantuoni's stock and he was taken in the fourth round (92nd overall) by the Pittsburgh Penguins.
