Carrier returned from an upper-body injury Thursday night against the Blues, but he went minus-2 and recorded only 6:54 of ice time in the 2-1 road loss. Not much has been expected of Carrier, as he's only averaging 8:35 of ice time through 21 contests with the nascent club, but it was still disappointing to see him out on the ice for both goals allowed. We wouldn't trust the fourth-liner as he hasn't had much of a hand in the Golden Knights' incredible start at 27-10-2 within a competitive Pacific Division.
Carrier (upper body) has been activated from injured reserve and will draw into Thursday's lineup against the Blues. Carrier has been sidelined since late November because of the upper-body issue, but he will finally rejoin the team in action Thursday, serving on the fourth line. It's unlikely he will gain fantasy relevance in the majority of leagues anytime soon, however, averaging just 8:40 of ice time and totaling two points (one goal, one assist) in the 20 games prior to his injury.
Carrier (upper body) remains unavailable to suit up for the Golden Knights against the Kings on Thursday, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. Carrier was a game-time decision heading into Saturday's pre-break clash with Washington, so it seemed like he was trending in the right direction; however, it appears nothing has changed in his status as he remains on injured reserve. The winger was stuck in a rut with an 11-game pointless streak prior to getting hurt, which makes it uncertain he will even slot back into the lineup once given the green light to return.
Carrier (upper body) will remain on the sidelines Saturday against the Capitals. The Golden Knights have a good thing going right now after beating the league's top team, Tampa Bay, on Tuesday, so head coach Gerard Gallant said he wouldn't change anything Saturday. That means Carrier will miss his 12th consecutive game. He should benefit from a long break, though, as his next chance to crack the lineup will be Dec. 27 in Anaheim.
Carrier (upper body) is considered a game-time decision for Saturday's contest against the Capitals, Danny Webster of NHL.com reports. Carrier has been sidelined since Nov. 25 against the Coyotes because of the upper-body injury, but appears to be on the cusp of rejoining the lineup. Official word on that front should be released closer to the opening faceoff, but his return likely won't mean much from a fantasy standpoint given his two points (one goal, one assist) through 20 tilts this season.
