Carrier scored a goal and doled out five hits in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Blackhawks in Game 1 of their first-round series. Carrier made the most of his 11:03 of ice time Tuesday, with his second-period tally holding up as the game-winner. The 25-year-old winger has two goals, 13 hits, 10 shots and a plus-2 rating in four playoff games. He'll likely be limited to a fourth-line role -- outside of physicality, he doesn't offer much to fantasy managers.
Carrier scored the game-winning goal and had a team-leading six shots with four hits in Monday's 5-3 round-robin win over Dallas. Carrier received a carom off the end boards and deftly went between his legs with his back to the net to put the Golden Knights up 4-3 with 5:13 left in the third period. It was the third of four straight Vegas goals in the final 10:14 of regulation and was the first career playoff tally for Carrier. The 25-year-old appeared in a career-high 71 games during the regular season, amassing seven goals and 12 assists.
Carrier supplied an assist in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Devils. Carrier had the primary helper on Ryan Reaves' third-period insurance tally. It was a bit of an odd game for Carrier -- he failed to record a hit for the first time Feb. 11 and just the fourth time all season. The 25-year-old winger now has 19 points, 205 hits, 97 shots on net and 39 PIM through 68 contests. He skated in his 200th game Tuesday -- Carrier has just 39 career points over parts of four seasons.
Carrier signed a four-year, $5.6 million contract extension with the Golden Knights on Thursday. Carrier has been a physical force for Vegas since joining the team via the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft, racking up 589 hits in 156 appearances despite averaging just 9:36 of ice time per contest. The 25-year-old winger will continue to provide the Golden Knights with a physical edge up front over the next four seasons, but he won't be a useful fantasy option in most formats due to his lack of offensive upside.
Carrier posted a goal on four shots, two hits and four PIM in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Panthers. Carrier scored the tying goal at 12:39 of the second period on a pass from Chandler Stephenson. Through 10 games in February, Carrier has two goals, two assists and 28 hits. He's at 18 points, 190 hits and 90 shots on goal in 63 contests this year.
