Matt Carey was born on February 28, 1992 in Hamilton, Ontario. The undrafted left winger would play in the Ontario Junior Hockey League before taking his talents to the St. Lawrence University Skating Saints of the NCAA. In his only year with the Skating Saints, Carey would score 18 goals and 37 points, leading him to be selected to the 2014 All-ECAC rookie team.

After one year in the NCAA, Carey would sign a two year contract with the Chicago Blackhawks. Carey would make his NHL debut on March 28, 2015 in a 5-3 loss to the Ottawa Senators. He later would score his first NHL goal on April 12, 2014 in a 7-5 loss to the Nashville Predators.

In the 2014-15 season, Carey would play the entire season with the Blackhawks’ AHL affiliate, the Rockford Ice Hogs. After the season was completed, the Blackhawks elected not to give him a qualifying offer, making Carey an unrestricted free agent. On July 13, 2015, Carey would sign a one year contract with the Iowa Wild of the AHL.
