Carrier (illness) did not make the trip to Winnipeg ahead of Tuesday's game versus the Jets, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports. The 24-year has sat out his team's last four contests and will miss his fifth game Tuesday when the Golden Knights take on Winnipeg. The team expects Carrier to miss an extended stretch, so even with three days off between games, the chances of him suiting up Saturday versus Pittsburgh appear to be slim at this point. Another update on his status should come in the next day or so.
Carrier (illness) has been placed on injured reserve, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports. Carrier's illness is apparently going to keep him out of the lineup for an extended stretch. Even utilizing a retroactive designation, the winger figures to miss the Knights' next two games. In order to fill out the lineup, Brandon Pirri was recalled from AHL Chicago -- who could challenge for a top-six spot in the lineup with Carrier out of action.
Carrier (illness) is not in Sunday's lineup against New Jersey, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports. Carrier was scratched Sunday, but it was assumed that he was a healthy scratch, sitting in favor of Oscar Lindberg. The 24-year-old shouldn't miss too much time with his ailment. Vegas plays the Rangers on Tuesday, so another update on his status should pop up before then.
Carrier potted a goal in Sunday's win over New York. Carrier has already set a new career high in goals (seven) and needs just one more point to break his total from 2016-17 when he notched eight points in 41 games for the Sabres. The winger's ceiling is likely in the 20-25 point range, assuming he can hold onto his spot in the lineup with consistency.
Carrier agreed to terms on two-year contract with Vegas on Monday. Following the departures of James Neal and David Perron, Carrier should be in line to see an expanded role next season. The winger logged 37 games for the Knights in 2017-18, but averaged a mere 8:50 of ice time. With a bigger role should come increased productivity, although the Quebec native's ceiling likely falls in the 20-30 point range.
