The Blackhawks traded Carrick and and Spencer Abbott to the Ducks in exchange for Kenton Helgesen and a 2019 seventh-round pick Wednesday. None of the players involved in this deal project to be strong contributors at the NHL level, so this move essentially boils down to an exchange of organizational depth and a late-round pick. Carrick has been a decent contributor in the minors this season, notching 28 points (11 goals, 17 assists) in 57 games with AHL Rockford. The 25-year-old forward will likely report to Anaheim's AHL affiliate and finish the 2016-17 season in the minors.
Carrick signed a one-year contract with the Blackhawks on Friday. Carrick spent the majority of the 2015-16 campaign with AHL Toronto, tallying 34 points (16 goals, 18 assists) over 52 games. The 24-year-old forward is purely a depth signing for the Blackhawks, and will once again spend most of the 2016-17 season in the minors.
Carrick was called up from AHL Toronto on an emergency basis Wednesday. Carrick gets the call with the Leafs rostering several injured forwards and buried waist deep in rebuild mode.
