  • Golden Knights' William Carrier: Heading to Sin City

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/21/17) Carrier has been selected by the Vegas Golden Knights in the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.

    Buffalo is sending a sixth-round draft pick to Vegas as part of the deal. Carrier is a big body (6-foot-2, 215 pounds) with a nice set of mitts around the front of the net, but he's struggled to score and been injury prone throughout his career as a professional. He posted just five goals in 41 games for the Sabres last season. Like many players selected by Vegas on Wednesday, Carrier is a project.

    Sabres' William Carrier: Exposed for expansion

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/18/17) Carrier was not protected by the Sabres and they will risk losing him to the expansion draft.

    The Sabres had key decisions to make and opted not to protect the spark-plug forward, who took advantage of what limited opportunities he had and managed to appear in 41 games for the Sabres, registering eight points and 112 hits. Carrier has one year remaining on his entry-level contract, making him a cheap and effective option for a fourth-line role, but the Sabres chose to protect the oft-injured Tyler Ennis instead. While bottom-six grinders like Carrier aren't hard to find, it was believed that the Sabres would choose to protect their younger players instead as they continue building their team. However, with veterans Josh Gorges, Zach Bogosian and Matt Moulson also left unprotected, it certainly lessens the chances of Vegas taking Carrier.

    Sabres' William Carrier: Will be on bench Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/5/17) Carrier will be a healthy scratch against the Canadiens on Wednesday, The Buffalo News reports.

    Carrier went back-to-back games with a minus-1 rating, only to follow that up with a goose egg in the box score in a tough 4-2 home loss to the Maple Leafs on Monday. The rookie possesses strong two-way skills and projects well as a second-round pick from the 2013 draft; perhaps he'll pick up on some X's and O's that aren't as clear when he's on the ice.

    Sabres' William Carrier: Back in action Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/25/17) Carrier (knee) will play Saturday versus the visiting Maple Leafs.

    It's been a long-time coming for the second-round pick of the 2013 draft. He'd been away from game ice since Feb 2, but figures to give the Sabres a boost as a bottom-six forward who plays a well-rounded game. The rookie has tacked on six points (four goals, two assists) along with a plus-2 rating over 35 contests. He's also shown some grit with 96 hits over that span.

    Sabres' William Carrier: Nears return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/23/17) Carrier (knee) returned to practice Thursday and should be available Saturday against the Maple Leafs.

    Carrier, who last played Feb. 2, has logged just four goals and six assists in 34 games this season, relegating his fantasy utility to deeper formats. Justin Bailey was demoted to AHL Rochester on Wednesday, so Carrier will likely take his spot in the lineup.
