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).

Playing career[edit]

Marcantuoni was the captain of Team Ontario when it won the gold medal at the 2011 World U-17 Hockey Challenge,[1] 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.[2] During his final junior season in 2013–14 with the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League, he was signed to a three-year entry level contract with the Penguins on October 19, 2013.[3]
