Matthieu Andre Jean Marc Luc Descoteaux (born September 23, 1977) is a former professional ice hockey defenceman. Selected in the first round of the 1996 NHL Entry Draft, 19th overall, by the Edmonton Oilers, Descoteaux played only five games at the NHL level, all with the Montreal Canadiens, and is widely viewed as a terrible first-round selection.
- March 9, 2000 – Descoteaux traded from Edmonton to Montreal with Christian Laflamme in exchange for Igor Ulanov and Alain Nasreddine.
