Jonathan Matsumoto (born October 13, 1986) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player who is currently plays for the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League.

Playing careerEdit

Matsumoto began playing collegiate hockey for the Bowling Green State University Falcons during the 2004-05 season. He became just the third freshman in Falcons' history to lead the team in scoring. After two successful seasons, he was drafted by the Philadelphia Flyers in the third round, 79th overall, of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.

Following his junior season, he began working out with the Flyers' AHL affiliate, the Philadelphia Phantoms. Flyers' management liked what they saw, and on March 14, 2007, Matsumoto decided to forgo his senior season and signed an entry level contract with the Flyers.[1] He was assigned to the Phantoms and made his professional debut on March 16, 2007.

On June 26, 2010, Philadelphia traded Matsumoto to the Carolina Hurricanes for a 2010 seventh-round draft pick.[2] Four months later Matsumoto made his NHL debut on November 1 against the Flyers. Matsumoto scored his first NHL goal on November 3, 2010 against Rick DiPietro of the New York Islanders.[3] The game was also his first multi-goal game in the NHL, as he added a second goal in the third period.[3]
