Carrick was designated for the taxi squad after clearing waivers Thursday.
After making his first appearance of the season, Carrick was rewarded by being demoted to the taxi squad. With Dmitry Kulikov and Sami Vatanen ready to play, Carrick figures to find himself on the outside looking in, though he could make the occasional appearance in the lineup down the stretch.
Carrick was waived by the Devils on Wednesday, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports.
Carrick made his season debut Tuesday against the Rangers after being removed from the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list, posting a minus-2 rating in 16:14 of ice time. He'll likely head to New Jersey's taxi squad if he passes through waivers unclaimed.
Carrick cleared the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Sunday, Corey Masisak of The Athletic reports.
The Devils have just five players remaining in the league's virus protocol. They're scheduled to return Tuesday against the Rangers. Carrick served as a healthy scratch in every game before his placement in protocol.
Carrick was placed on the NHL's COVID-19 protocol list Monday, Corey Masisak of The Athletic reports.
Carrick was removed from protocols over the weekend but found himself back on the list with just about every one of his Devils teammates. The NHL has postponed New Jersey's games through at least Feb. 15. The 5-foot-11 blueliner has yet to make his season debut.
Carrick was activated from the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Saturday, Corey Masisak of The Athletic reports.
The Devils have 16 players left in the league's virus protocol. It's uncertain when they'll return to action, and there's no guarantee Carrick will be in the lineup when that happens. After all, he was a healthy scratch in every game before being placed in protocol.

Carrick left the team for the birth of his first child, so he's quarantining as a precaution. The 26-year-old won't play in Sunday's road game against the Sabres; it's unclear how long he'll be out.
Carrick potted a goal on five shots in Friday's 4-2 win over the Blues.
Carrick's tally at 17:58 of the second period stood as the game-winner. The 25-year-old blueliner has two points in his last three games, and six points through 27 contests overall. He remains in a limited, third-pairing role which isn't likely to generate much fantasy interest.
Carrick notched a helper in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Ducks.
The 25-year-old blueliner picked up his fifth assist of the year, and his first in nine games. Carrick has added 35 blocked shots, 22 hits and a minus-4 rating through 25 contests -- he's a part-time player with minimal offense. Don't expect Carrick to make much of an impact from a fantasy standpoint.
Carrick blocked three shots and finished minus-1 in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Canadiens.
When Carrick enters the lineup, which isn't often, he's mainly a defensive contributor. The 25-year-old has started a whopping 64.7 percent of shifts in the defensive zone, and he's blocked 22 shots through 13 games.
Carrick (finger) has been activated off injured reserve, but he won't be in the lineup for Wednesday's game against Anaheim.
Now that he's recovered from his broken finger, Carrick will resume his duties as the Devils' seventh defenseman, which will involve sitting as a healthy scratch on a regular basis. The 25-year-old American can be ignored in all fantasy formats.
The Devils recalled Carrick (finger) from his conditioning assignment with AHL Binghamton on Thursday, but he'll remain on long-term injured reserve for the time being, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.
Carrick appeared in three AHL games with Binghamton but went pointless and was a minus-3. He'll join the Devils in Colorado ahead of the front end of the team's two-game road trip that starts Friday. Another update on the 25-year-old's status should surface once he's activated off IR.
New Jersey loaned Carrick (finger) to AHL Binghamton on a conditioning assignment Friday.
Carrick has been sidelined since Oct. 14 due to a broken finger, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him stay with Binghamton for the full two weeks the NHL allows for conditioning assignments. Once he's deemed fully fit, the 25-year-old will return to his role as the Devils' seventh defenseman.
Carrick (finger) practiced for the first time since suffering a broken finger Tuesday, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.
Carrick has been sidelined since undergoing surgery in late October, but he appears to be finally closing in on a return to game action. Once healthy, the 25-year-old American, who's picked up one assist in four games this campaign, will return to a rotational role as the Devils' seventh defenseman.
Carrick underwent surgery on his broken finger and will miss 4-6 weeks.
Carrick was already designated for injured reserve, but this may be longer than the team was originally hoping. The blueliner doesn't offer much in terms of offensive upside, he's cracked the 10-point mark just once in his career, but his absence from the lineup could increase the amount of rubber the Devils' netminders face. With Carrick on the shelf, Mirco Mueller and Will Butcher (upper body) could both see upticks in ice time.
Carrick was designated for injured reserve after sustaining an upper-body injury at practice Thursday.
Carrick served as a healthy scratch in four of the Devils' first eight games, so his spot on the blue line was tenuous at best. Matt Tennyson figures to remain in the lineup versus Arizona on Friday, while the team used the open spot on the 23-man roster to activate Will Butcher (upper body). Carrick will miss a minimum of two games due to his placement on IR.
Carrick was a healthy scratch for Thursday's game against the Rangers.
Carrick has dressed for four of New Jersey's first seven games and has one assist to show for his efforts. He suited up for 34 contests between the Devils and Stars last season, and Carrick should continue to rotate between the third defensive pairing and the press box.
Carrick agreed to terms on a two-year, $3 million contract with New Jersey on Tuesday.
Carrick was scheduled for an arbitration hearing, but the two sides were apparently able to come to an agreement. After being traded to New Jersey from Dallas last season, the Illinois native notched one goal, six assists and 26 shots in 20 appearances. The addition of P.K. Subban creates a bit of a logjam on the blue line, which could see Carrick struggle for ice time.
Carrick filed for arbitration Friday.
Carrick played 34 games for the Devils in 2018-19, finding the scoresheet 11 times along the way. Last year, the 25-year-old defenseman took in $1.3 million, and he should expect to sign a similar deal for the 2019-20 season.
Carrick was qualified by the Devils on Tuesday.
Carrick finished 2018-19 with a pair of goals to go along with nine assists and was a minus-13 in 34 appearances. Considering he dressed in New Jersey's final 20 games, one would assume the team has interest in bringing him back in 2019-20. Last year saw Carrick average the highest TOI of his career, playing an average of 16:48 per night.
Carrick went scoreless with a plus-2 rating in Saturday's season finale against Florida, finishing the season with two goals, 11 points and a minus-13 rating in 34 games between the Stars and Devils.
It's likely the Devils will opt to retain the restricted free agent after acquiring him at the trade deadline. Carrick has shown flashes of ability, but he hasn't been able to put it all together, recording no more than 12 points in a season while already dressing for four different NHL teams.
