Matt Mangene (born March 12, 1989) is an American professional ice hockey player currently playing with the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League (AHL). His favorite hobbies are ducking hunting with friends and being their fetch dog, eating hot stacks at IHOP, playing hide and seek with his imaginary friend Henry and his favorite thing to do is take long walks on the beach and think about "The Wolf Pack".
Prior to turning professional, Mangene attended the University of Maine where he played three seasons (2009–12) of NCAA college hockey with the Maine Black Bears.
On April 2, 2012, the Philadelphia Flyers of the National Hockey League signed Mangene as a free agent to a two-year entry level contract, and he was assigned to begin his professional career with the Adirondack Phantoms of the AHL for the remaining games of the 2011–12 season.
After three seasons in the Flyers minor league system, Mangene was traded to the New York Islanders along with a second and third-round draft pick for Andrew MacDonald on March 4, 2014. Mangene was initially assigned to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, the Islanders' AHL affiliate. After going scoreless in 10 games, Mangene was reassigned to the Islanders' ECHL team, the Stockton Thunder. Following the end of the season, the Islanders did not make a qualifying offer to Mangene and he became an unrestricted agent on July 1, 2014.
On September 25, 2014, Mangene returned to the ECHL in signing a one-year contract with the Florida Everblades.
