Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Matt Calvert
Matthew Calvert was born on December 24, 1989 in Brandon, Manitoba. Calvert played his junior hockey for his hometown Brandon Wheat Kings of the WHL and served as the club's captain during the 2009-10 season. In his final year with the Wheat Kings, Calvert helped lead the club all the way to the Memorial Cup Final, where they were defeated by the Windsor Spitfires.

A draft pick of the Columbus Blue Jackets, Calvert joined the club's AHL affiliate, the Springfield Falcons, in 2010 and early in 2011 received his first taste of NHL action. In all, he would appear in 42 games for Columbus during the 2010-11 season, highlighted by a natural hat trick he scored against the Phoenix Coyotes on February 25, 2011.

Calvert would establish himself as a solid two-way player as a member of the Blue Jackets. In 2013-14, he recorded a career-high 24 points, while helping the Blue Jackets to their first playoff berth since 2009. He followed that up with a season of 23 points in 2014-15, which included 13 goals and then matched his career-high 24 points in 2015-16.
