Mathew Grouchy was once ranked by NHL central scouting, the 6’1″ right winger had the potential to be drafted. However, his performance in the second half of his junior season saw him left off the final list.

Grouchy joint the Charlottetown Islanders in the 2016-17 season, drafted in the second round, with thoughts that he would see limited ice time on the fourth line. However, he surprised the team and the league, contributing 28 point (11G/17A) in his rookie season. His performance continued in the 2017-18 season, contributing 11 goals & 13 assists in 33 games before being traded to the Quebec Ramparts where he added 6 more goals and 4 assists.

Grouch did flourish in the playoffs after the trade, leading the Remparts in scoring. He had a goal and nine assists in seven-game, first-round series loss against his old team, the Islanders.

In the 2018-19 season, Grouch saw his opening half of the season result in him being ranked by the NHL Central Scouting. The winger struggled in the second half of the season but he still managed to rack up 47 points (14G/33A) in 61 games.

With the 2019-20 season underway, Grouch finds himself with the Gatineau Olympiques and in his first 14 games, he’s just under a point a game, with 3 goals and 8 assists.
