Observations:

April 2017 – The high energy fourth round pick is leading the playoff charge for the dominant Saint John Sea Dogs of the QMJHL. With a relatively even goals:assists ratio and almost two points per game, he is proving that he will be able to fill the void left in the Syracuse Crunch roster when the Lightning pluck some of the riper prospects. With their heavily intimidating roster, the Sea Dogs will continue to challenge for a QMJHL title, and a Memorial Cup. Joseph should have lots of hockey left giving us the opportunity to determine if his dominance can remain consistent. Brayden Olafson

 

January 2017 – Mathieu Joseph is coming off a respectable showing at the 2017 World Junior Championship for Team Canada, his first showing on the international stage where he tallied one goal and five points in seven games.  Joseph earned his spot on the team because of his strong two-way game. While he's been excelling offensively for the Saint John Sea Dogs since the midway point last season, he's shown his ability to play in all situations. Joseph was mainly playing as a third line winger with Mathew Barzal and Taylor Raddysh. Just like playing with the Sea Dogs, Joseph wasn't afraid to mix things up physically. Joseph moves from a supportive role with Team Canada back to a veteran role with the Sea Dogs where he will have more ice-time and be relied upon to provide offense as well as defense. Joseph's offense may not translate in higher levels, but his ability to play in multiple roles gives him a better chance of filling a hole with the Tampa Bay Lightning.  Kathryn Jean

 

August 2016 – Mathieu Joseph will be trying to make the NHL squad this fall after a successful breakout season last year in Saint John. His overall skill has improved and his play indicates he has potential to become a scoring, bottom-six winger. In all likelihood, Joseph will be with the Saint John Sea Dogs again this season and will be focused on the more physical side of the game while trying to build his body for the professional level.

Fantasy Outlook: C+

Joseph hit a career high in goals and assists last year, but will need to put up consistent numbers in order to achieve serious fantasy consideration.
