Carrier racked up 11 hits over 11:10 of ice time in Saturday's 2-3 loss to the Red Wings. Carrier set a new season high in hits Saturday -- the highest before then was 10 against Ottawa on Oct 28. The physicality was encouraging to see from someone who had just missed 14 games to an upper-body injury. The Quebec native now has a career-best 258 hits through 49 games this season.
Carrier (upper body) will be in action against the Red Wings on Saturday, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. Carrier will reprise his role as a gritty fourth-line contributor in charge of keeping the Wings off-balance. Still, he's only averaging 9:50 of ice time, so fantasy owners should look elsewhere for help at forward.
Carrier (upper body) won't be in action against the Jets on Thursday, but he's "extremely close" to a return, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports. This report makes it sound like Carrier will be available against the Red Wings on Saturday. Assuming he does suit up for that game, the Golden Knights will have an extra layer of physicality against a team that's focused on next season.
Carrier (upper body) is still at least a week away from returning to the lineup, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports. Carrier has resumed skating, which is certainly a step in the right direction. The winger has played in just four of the Devils' previous 26 contests due to injury. Once he is cleared to go, the Quebec native figures to slot into a fourth-line role, though he could find himself serving as a healthy scratch from time to time.
Coach Gerard Gallant expects Carrier (upper body) to resume skating soon and believes he could be ready to return in "a couple" of weeks, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports. Carrier's eventual return will bolster the Golden Knights' bottom six, but it won't impact any fantasy lineups, as he's only notched nine points in 48 appearances this season. Another update on the 24-year-old winger's status should surface once he's cleared to return to practice with his teammates.
