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.
Carrier is considered week-to-week due to an upper-body injury, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.
There are some concerns that Carrier suffered a concussion, though the team wouldn't go beyond an upper-body designation. Based on his announced timeline, the winger will miss at least the next two games and could be a candidate for injured reserve in order to free up an extra roster spot.
Carrier dished out eight hits versus Columbus on Saturday.
Carrier was making his first appearance in the lineup since Jan. 4 due to an undisclosed injury, but clearly was feeling 100 percent, as he was willing to take on contact. The winger logged just 10:36 of ice time and figures to continue seeing limiting minutes in a bottom-six role the rest of the way.
Carrier (undisclosed) is back in the lineup for Saturday's matchup with Columbus.
Carrier will return in a fourth-line role, as confirmed by the emoji-filled tweet from the Golden Knights' official Twitter account. His return to the lineup was expected after Carrier was taken off injured reserve earlier in the day, and now it's official.
Carrier (undisclosed) has been officially activated off of injured reserve, per the NHL media site.
Carrier is considered a game-time decision for Saturday's contest, but his activation from injured reserve likely puts the winger on a path to play. He slotted in as the left wing on the third line during morning skate, so that's likely where he will draw in if he dresses. Carrier has, surprisingly, provided eight goals and nine points this season, but his lack of ice time -- 9:55 per game on average -- and omission from the power play leaves the 24-year-old off the fantasy radar in most formats.
Carrier (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's matchup with Columbus, Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Carrier's impending return to the lineup will bolster the Golden Knights' bottom six, but it will likely go unnoticed by most fantasy owners, as he's only notched nine points in 44 contests this campaign. Another update on the 2013 second-round pick's status should surface once Vegas takes the ice for pregame warmups.
Carrier (undisclosed) isn't traveling with the Golden Knights on their current four-game road trip, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.
Carrier has already missed Vegas' last eight games due to an undisclosed injury, and he'll almost certainly be on the shelf for at least four more. Either way, fantasy owners shouldn't need to keep tabs on the 24-year-old winger's status, as he's only notched one goal and nine points in 44 appearances this season.
Carrier is not dealing with an illness, but he continues to miss time due to an injury, per Golden Knights GM George McPhee, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
Carrier has missed seven straight games and remains without a timetable for his return. The winger's penchant for hits -- he ranks first in that category through 44 games -- invites injuries, but it's that very style that amps up the home crowd. Look for Oscar Lindberg and Tomas Nosek to continue holding down the fort in the bottom six with Carrier unavailable.
Carrier (illness) is slated to be sidelined versus Minnesota on Monday, Danny Webster of NHL.com reports.
Carrier figures to miss his seventh consecutive contest due to illness. The team has not provided an update on the winger, so it's unclear what is bothering him. At this point, fantasy owners probably shouldn't expect him to come off injured reserve until after the All-Star break.
Carrier (illness) remains out of the lineup Saturday against the Penguins.
Carrier's next opportunity to return comes Monday against the Wild. Expect another update on his status prior to that one -- the forward has now missed a half-dozen games.
Carrier (illness) did not make the trip to Winnipeg ahead of Tuesday's game versus the Jets, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.
The 24-year has sat out his team's last four contests and will miss his fifth game Tuesday when the Golden Knights take on Winnipeg. The team expects Carrier to miss an extended stretch, so even with three days off between games, the chances of him suiting up Saturday versus Pittsburgh appear to be slim at this point. Another update on his status should come in the next day or so.
Carrier (illness) has been placed on injured reserve, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.
Carrier's illness is apparently going to keep him out of the lineup for an extended stretch. Even utilizing a retroactive designation, the winger figures to miss the Knights' next two games. In order to fill out the lineup, Brandon Pirri was recalled from AHL Chicago -- who could challenge for a top-six spot in the lineup with Carrier out of action.
Carrier (illness) is not in Sunday's lineup against New Jersey, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
Carrier was scratched Sunday, but it was assumed that he was a healthy scratch, sitting in favor of Oscar Lindberg. The 24-year-old shouldn't miss too much time with his ailment. Vegas plays the Rangers on Tuesday, so another update on his status should pop up before then.
Carrier potted a goal in Sunday's win over New York.
Carrier has already set a new career high in goals (seven) and needs just one more point to break his total from 2016-17 when he notched eight points in 41 games for the Sabres. The winger's ceiling is likely in the 20-25 point range, assuming he can hold onto his spot in the lineup with consistency.
Carrier scored a goal among three shots in Saturday's 3-0 win over Carolina.
Carrier lit the lamp for the first time this year, helping Vegas pick up the victory. Carrier is not a great fantasy option, as he's registered only two points through 14 games this season.
Carrier has yet to record a point this season, though he does have 23 hits through five games.
Any attacking-zone contributions from Carrier should be considered a bonus. Incredibly, he had 21 hits through the first two games of the conference quarterfinals against the Kings in April, but an undisclosed issue caused him to miss 10 playoff games. By the time Carrier was healthy enough to return, the Stanley Cup was already in the building for the Capitals' enjoyment. With a scant role and just 11 points in 83 career games, the Quebec native is best reserved for deep roto leagues that include hits as a category.
