Matthew Vincent D'Agostini (born October 23, 1986) is a Canadian professional ice hockey right winger who is currently playing for HC Ambrì-Piotta of the National League (NL). He was drafted in the sixth round, 190th overall, by the Montreal Canadiens at the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.
D'Agostini began his Midget age career with the Root River Rangers, a midget AA team from Sault Ste. Marie. After one season with the Rangers, he played one year Midget AAA for the Soo North Stars. The following year he was selected as a walk-on player by the Guelph Storm.
On April 2, 2008, Montreal recalled D'Agostini from the Hamilton Bulldogs of the American Hockey League (AHL). He played his first NHL game on April 3, 2008 against the Buffalo Sabres. He scored his first career goal on December 2, 2008 against the Atlanta Thrashers. On December 4, D'Agostini recorded his first NHL assist against the New York Rangers.
On August 14, 2009, the Canadiens signed D'Agostini to a one-year contract extension. During the 2010–11 season, on March 2, 2010, Montreal traded D'Agostini to the St. Louis Blues for Aaron Palushaj.
As free agency approached, on July 1, 2011, the Blues re-signed D'Agostini to a two-year contract.
As a result of the NHL lockout at the start of the 2012-13 season, D'Agostini signed a two-month contract with SC Riessersee, from the resort town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, playing in the German 2nd Bundesliga, on October 10, 2102. After 10 games with Riessersee, D'Agostini returned to the Blues in order for the start of the shortened NHL season.
A frequent healthy scratch, appearing in only 16 games with the Blues, D'Agostini was traded to the New Jersey Devils along with a conditional 7th round pick in exchange for a conditional 4th or 5th Round pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft on March 22, 2013.
Released by the Sabres, with no NHL clubs interested in acquiring him, D'Agostini signed a one-year contract on July 18, 2014, to play for Genève-Servette HC of the National League (NL). He played 40 games (14 goals, 23 assists) in the 2014-15 regular season followed by twelve postseason contests with seven goals and three assists. He was then signed to a two-year contract, making him an Eagle through the end of the 2016/17 season. In the 2015-16 season, D'Agostini tallied 20 goals and 20 assists in 46 regular season games. He chipped in with three goals and two assists in the playoffs (seven appearances).
On May 31, 2016, he was shipped to HC Ambrì-Piotta of the NL, despite one year remaining on his contract with Geneva. On July 27, 2017, D'Agostini signed a one-year contract extension with the Biancoblu.
