Carrick signed a two-year contract with San Jose on Monday after being acquired from Carolina in exchange for Miles Wood. Carrick saw action in just one NHL game last season with the Hurricanes, instead spending the year in the minors with AHL Charlotte, for which he notched nine goals and 38 helpers in 71 contests. The 25-year-old will get a chance to secure regular minutes during training camp, though will likely still have to spend time with the Barracuda.
Carrick received a qualifying offer from the Hurricanes on Tuesday, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports. Carrick suited up in just one NHL game last season and four in his career, so he'll have a tough time cracking Carolina's lineup out of camp and is more likely to wind up as organizational depth in the AHL.
Carrick was assigned to AHL Charlotte on Sunday, Sara Civian of The Athletic reports. Carrick geared up for just one game in his NHL stint, but he let his presence be known by dropping the gloves with the Islanders' Ross Johnston. Expect the 24-year-old to be called up again when the Canes need a physical touch.
Carrick was recalled from AHL Charlotte on Friday. The Hurricanes just put Brett Pesce (lower body) on injured reserve, opening up the roster spot for Carrick. Since being drafted in 2012, the 24-year-old has only played in three games for Carolina, so even though he's been recalled, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Carrick as a healthy scratch until Pesce returns.
Carrick signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Hurricanes on Tuesday, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports. Since entering the league in 2014, Carrick has suited up for just three NHL games and recorded zero points. Instead, the 23-year-old blueliner has spent four seasons with AHL Charlotte. Carrick thrived in the minors during 2017-18, drumming up 11 goals and 33 assists through 73 games to rank as top defenseman on the squad and sixth in the AHL. With Klas Dahlbeck headed to the KHL, Carrick will have a shot at a roster spot on the bottom pairing next campaign.
