List Manager Stephen Silvagni knew what Carlton was getting when he threw Matthew Wright a lifeline, for the 94-game former Adelaide midfielder/forward has truly delivered with his football smarts, adept shots on goal and well-earned reputation as a quality clubman. One of seven to feature in all 22 senior appearances through 2017, Wright is closing in on 50 quality games in dark navy, with many more to come.

Draft history: 2010 Rookie Draft selection (Adelaide) No.33; 2011 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (Adelaide) selection No.82; 2015 delisted free agent (Carlton).
