Carrick (upper body) will rejoin the lineup Monday against the Bruins, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. Carrick has been sidelined since Feb. 21 due to the issue, but the Maple Leafs will finally get back a consistent piece of their lineup in what could prove to be a pivotal game in their season. His return likely won't have the same impact in most fantasy leagues, as the 22-year-old blueliner has only collected seven points (two goals, five assists) over 55 contests this season. He does fire the puck on net at a decent rate, however, notching 78 shots on goal over that span.
Carrick (upper body) practiced for the third straight day Sunday and could be on the ice for Monday's game against Boston, David Alter of The Athletic reports. His status will be more clearly outlined Monday after morning skate. He hasn't played since getting injured on Feb. 21, so it could take him a couple games to get back up to NHL speed.
Carrick is still "a ways away" from returning according to head coach Mike Babcock, Mark Masters of TSN reports. While not the most definite timetable, it seems clear that the blueliner won't be on the ice for at least the next couple games this week. His seven points in 55 games mean he isn't much of a fantasy threat even when healthy.
Carrick (upper body) was placed on injured reserve by the Maple Leafs on Monday, Terry Koshan of the Toronto Sun reports. The move effectively rules the blueliner out for Tuesday's game against the Sharks, but he will be eligible to return as soon as Thursday against the Kings. Expect the club to make an announcement when he's ready to return to action, but his absence shouldn't be felt in the vast majority of fantasy leagues given his seven points through 55 games this season.
Carrick will not return to Tuesday's contest against the Jets after sustaining an upper-body injury. It's not immediately clear how Carrick sustained the injury. The 22-year-old saw the ice for 3:38 and recorded just one shot on goal before leaving for the night. He's notched just one assist in his last 19 appearances, so he's not likely to be missed by most fantasy owners if he has to miss extended time.
