Carpenter signed a three-year, $3 million contract with the Blackhawks on Monday, Chris Kuc of The Athletic reports. Carpenter appeared in 68 games with the Golden Knights in 2018-19, tallying five goals and 18 points over that span. The 28-year-old will likely center the Blackhawks' fourth line while also contributing as a penalty killer in 2019-20, but he won't produce enough offense to be worth consideration in most fantasy formats.
Carpenter registered an assist and three hits in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Oilers. Carpenter has assists in consecutive games after a mini-slump of three straight pointless outings. The 28-year-old forward is up to five goals and 12 helpers in 58 games this season, and his three hits Sunday gave him 100 for the year. For the majority of fantasy owners, he can be left on the free agent list.
Carpenter found twine in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Canucks. Carpenter corraled a Pierre-Edouard Bellemare shot that goalie Jacob Markstrom had initially sent back, ultimately securing his fifth goal of the season. The versatile fourth-liner now has a career-high 15 points through 53 games, though that can primarily be attributed to the fact that he's playing more than ever in his second year with the Golden Knights.
Carpenter skated 12:54 and registered two shots and two hits in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Stars. Carpenter returned on the third line in this contest. He has 13 points in 50 games this season, with 87 hits to his credit. He will remain only minimally valuable in deep formats.
Carpenter (undisclosed) will return to the lineup for Tuesday's game against Dallas, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports. Carpenter's return will bolster the Golden Knights' bottom six, but it won't impact many fantasy lineups, as he's only notched 13 points in 49 appearances this campaign. The 28-year-old American will skate with Cody Eakin and Alex Tuch on Vegas' third line against the Stars.
