Golden Knights' William Carrier: Gathers assist in 200th game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carrier supplied an assist in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Devils.

Carrier had the primary helper on Ryan Reaves' third-period insurance tally. It was a bit of an odd game for Carrier -- he failed to record a hit for the first time Feb. 11 and just the fourth time all season. The 25-year-old winger now has 19 points, 205 hits, 97 shots on net and 39 PIM through 68 contests. He skated in his 200th game Tuesday -- Carrier has just 39 career points over parts of four seasons.

Golden Knights' William Carrier: Inks four-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carrier signed a four-year, $5.6 million contract extension with the Golden Knights on Thursday.

Carrier has been a physical force for Vegas since joining the team via the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft, racking up 589 hits in 156 appearances despite averaging just 9:36 of ice time per contest. The 25-year-old winger will continue to provide the Golden Knights with a physical edge up front over the next four seasons, but he won't be a useful fantasy option in most formats due to his lack of offensive upside.

Golden Knights' William Carrier: Nets seventh goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carrier posted a goal on four shots, two hits and four PIM in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Panthers.

Carrier scored the tying goal at 12:39 of the second period on a pass from Chandler Stephenson. Through 10 games in February, Carrier has two goals, two assists and 28 hits. He's at 18 points, 190 hits and 90 shots on goal in 63 contests this year.

Golden Knights' William Carrier: Bags helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carrier delivered an assist, three shots on goal, three hits and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Hurricanes.

The physical winger extended his career-high output to 16 points in 57 games. Carrier has added 171 hits, 81 shots and 33 PIM this season. His strong play has earned him a spot on the third line, although he'll likely go back to a more suitable fourth-line role when Cody Glass (lower body) and William Karlsson (upper body) return to the lineup.

Golden Knights' William Carrier: Nets first goal since Christmas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carrier scored a goal on his only shot and dished out three hits Tuesday in a 4-2 loss to the Lightning.

Carrier got the Golden Knights on the board with his sixth goal of the year late in the first period. The goal was his first since Dec. 23 and busted a 14-game goal skid. The 25-year-old has a career-high 15 points in 55 games but doesn't provide much fantasy production outside of hits leagues.

Golden Knights' William Carrier: Manages assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carrier notched an assist, five hits, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Flyers.

Carrier had the lone helper on Cody Glass's second-period tally, which would stand as the game-winner. Carrier continues to enjoy career-best production with 12 points, 70 shots on goal and 129 hits through 44 outings. While he doesn't score enough to be reliable in season-long fantasy, he can make an impact in DFS formats that reward physicality.

Golden Knights' William Carrier: Tries to spark comeback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carrier scored a goal, dished five hits and went plus-2 in Monday's 7-3 loss to the Avalanche.

Carrier's third-period goal cut the Avalanche's lead to 5-3, but the Golden Knights didn't strike again. The 25-year-old is playing the best hockey of his four-year career, with 11 points, 113 hits, 62 shots on goal and 25 PIM through 40 contests.

Golden Knights' William Carrier: Sets career high in points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carrier notched an assist and tossed four hits in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Wild.

Carrier set up Tomas Nosek's goal in the third period, which would stand as the game-winner. With the helper, Carrier set a career high for points with 10 (four goals, six assists). He's up to 102 hits and 55 shots on goal in 37 games this year. While it's not exactly a breakout, the somewhat consistent offense could make the physical winger worth a look in deep fantasy formats.

Golden Knights' William Carrier: Pots goal in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carrier lit the lamp on three shots in Thursday's 4-2 loss to St. Louis.

Carrier secured points in back-to-back games for the first time this season, and saw 10:29 of ice time, up from his season average of 9:09. The 24-year-old is still tough to trust in the long run from a fantasy perspective, as he's up to nine points, 50 shots on goal and 91 hits in 34 games.

Golden Knights' William Carrier: Slings helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carrier provided an assist and two hits in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Blackhawks.

Carrier had the secondary assist on fellow hard-hitting winger Ryan Reaves' third-period tally. The helper snapped a six-game point drought for Carrier, who is up to eight points, 90 hits and 47 shots on goal in 33 contests this year.

Golden Knights' William Carrier: Sneaky production continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carrier earned a primary assist Monday in a 4-2 loss to the Stars.

The fourth-line grinder has three goals and a career-high four assists through 26 games. He's averaging just 9:04 of ice time per contest, albeit doing enough to keep him appealing as a cash-saving flier in DFS contests.

Golden Knights' William Carrier: Registers assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carrier picked up an assist, four shots on goal and six hits in Thursday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Sharks.

Carrier set up Brayden McNabb for the tally in the third period. He has a respectable six points and an impressive 71 hits in 23 contests this year. Carrier had nine points and 277 hits in 54 contests last season -- the 24-year-old has a chance to top both marks if he stays healthy, but his heavy playing style could make that difficult.

Golden Knights' William Carrier: Opens scoring in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carrier scored a goal on three shots and added three hits in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Blackhawks.

Carrier opened the scoring at 2:58 of the first period, but his contribution to the offense wouldn't hold up well. It's his third goal and fifth point of the year in addition to 59 hits and 27 shots on goal in 20 contests.

Golden Knights' William Carrier: Making most of opportunties
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carrier set up Ryan Reaves' goal in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Ducks.

Carrier outmuscled Carter Rowney from the slot and on a delayed penalty, with the fourth-line winger feeding Reaves while falling to the ice. It's tough for Carrier to be a consistent offensive producer given his limited role, but he's still on pace for 25 points, which would smash his previous personal best of nine that he provided for Vegas last year.

Golden Knights' William Carrier: First career multi-point game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carrier scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Flames.

The Golden Knights' fourth line contributed an unexpected four points, with Carrier's pair leading the way. The winger also went plus-3 with six hits in the contest. Carrier has produced three points and 20 hits in the first five games of the year. The physicality will almost always be there for the 24-year-old, but his scoring shouldn't be expected to continue at this pace for long.

Golden Knights' William Carrier: Pots opening goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carrier scored a goal on two shots and added two hits in Friday's 5-1 win over the Sharks.

Not bad for 10:28 of ice time in the lopsided contest. Carrier is better known for his physical contributions -- he had 277 hits and only nine points in 54 games last season, so he's not a player fantasy owners will pay much attention.

Golden Knights' William Carrier: Physical in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Golden Knights' William Carrier: Ready to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Golden Knights' William Carrier: On brink of return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Golden Knights' William Carrier: Out another week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
