The Bruins have extended a qualifying offer to Carlo, Matt Porter of the Boston Globe reports.
The same applies to fellow impending restricted free agents Charlie McAvoy and Danton Heinen, with retaining the trio an offseason priority for the Bruins. Carlo -- who logged two goals and 10 points in 72 games this past season -- isn't much of a fantasy factor, but the 6-foot-5, 212-pounder has developed into a reliable shut-down defender for the Bruins. He's obviously someone the team would like to keep around, with the clock ticking on the NHL career of 42-year-old Zdeno Chara.
Carlo potted a goal -- which stood as the game-winner -- in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Blues in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals.
It was only the second playoff goal for the defenseman, who has added two helpers, 31 hits, 31 shots and 30 blocked shots in 23 games. Carlo's first goal came in Game 4 of the Cup finals in a loss.
Carlo suited up in Monday's practice after resting for the final game of the regular season.
Carlo -- who was held out of the regular-season finale -- was back at it Monday alongside Torey Krug on the second pairing. His readiness for the postseason likely won't have a big impact from a fantasy perspective, however, as the 22-year-old produced just 10 points in 72 games in 2018-19.
Carlo will not play in Saturday's regular-season finale against the Lightning
Carlo will take a breather with the playoffs on tap, finishing out his regular season with 10 points -- two goals and eight assists -- and a plus-22 rating over 72 contests. Although he's not an offensive juggernaut, his sound play defensively gave him some value in leagues that include rating as a stat. However, the majority of postseason contests don't take that into account, leaving Carlo largely off the fantasy radar.
Carlo had a helper and three blocked shots in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Red Wings.
In 70 games this season, Carlo has posted two goals and seven helpers, as well as 133 hits, 86 blocks and 112 shots on goal. He owns a plus-18 rating as well, but without much point production, fantasy relevance will continue to elude the 22-year-old.
Carlo led all Bruins with 22:19 of ice time during Thursday's 5-1 win over the Devils.
In only his third professional season, Carlo has shown himself to be one of the steadiest defensemen on the Boston blue line. Although his offensive numbers are low, he leads all Bruins defenders in games played (65) and plus-minus (plus-17). Carlo ended Thursday's contest a plus-3 and tacked on a hit.
Carlo (undisclosed) was at practice Friday.
Carlo was forced out of Thursday's 4-1 win over the Lightning late in the third period due to an unspecified issue, but he appears fine as Saturday's game against New Jersey approaches. With just one goal and six points in 55 games to date, Carlo's fantasy impact has been modest, but the 22-year-old's plus-12 rating is indicative of his strong shutdown work on the Boston blue line.
Carlo exited Thursday's 4-1 win over the Lightning late in the third period due to an undisclosed injury, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports.
According to coach Bruce Cassidy, Carlo "looked okay" in the locker room following Thursday's win, but he'll still be reevaluated Friday. Another update on the 22-year-old blueliner's condition will likely be released prior to Saturday's game against the Devils.
Carlo was credited with an assist on Brad Marchand's shorthanded goal that capped off a 4-1 victory over the Sharks on Tuesday.
Carlo has now matched last season's point total of six in 22 fewer games. While the offense leaves a lot to be desired, the 22-year-old defender is already on his third full season in the NHL and continues to skate an average of 20 minutes per game on the second pairing.
Carlo picked up an assist in Friday's 3-0 win over the Ducks.
Carlo's last point came over two months ago, in a 5-3 loss to the Penguins. He now has a goal and three assists in 49 games, while recording 96 hits and 58 blocks this season. The defender can safely be avoided for fantasy purposes, but he is trusted by coach Bruce Cassidy and will continue to log over 20 minutes per game.
Carlo went pointless with a minus-1 rating and two hits in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Capitals.
After putting up respectable offensive numbers in his rookie season -- 16 points in 82 games -- Carlo has not been able to tap into that offensive ability in his two seasons since. This year he has only three points in 35 games.
Carlo scored a goal against the Penguins on Tuesday, en route to a 5-3 loss.
The goal was Carlo's seventh of his career and first since March 4, 2017. The 22-year-old has only three points through 23 games this season but is already halfway to the total of six points he put up last season.
Carlo (shoulder) has been activated from injured reserve ahead for Saturday's game against the Red Wings, per the Bruins' official site.
This is a mere formality after Joe Haggerty of NBC Sports Boston announced earlier in the morning that Carlo would return after missing nine games with his shoulder injury.
Carlo (shoulder) will play Saturday against the Red Wings, Joe Haggerty of NBC Sports Boston reports.
Carlo technically remains on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site, but all signs point to the stay-at-home defenseman being in action against the Red Wings. We'll follow up again when he's officially activated.
Carlo (shoulder) is considered probable for Saturday's game against the Red Wings.
Carlo has missed Boston's last nine games due to a shoulder injury, but it appears as though he's finally back to 100 percent, and should be ready to return to a middle-pairing role against Detroit. The 22-year-old is a solid shutdown defenseman, but his lack of offensive upside prevents him from being a viable option in all but the deepest fantasy formats.
Carlo (shoulder/collarbone) won't play Thursday against the Islanders.
On the plus side, coach Bruce Cassidy relayed Thursday that Carlo is getting close to a return to action and hopefully Saturday (against Detroit) is the day." In 16 games to date, the 22-year-old has logged just two assists and 10 PIM, numbers that don't attract much fantasy attention. That said, the 6-foot-5, 212-pounder brings good size and valuable shut-down ability to the Bruins' blue line.
Carlo, who has been out with a shoulder/collarbone injury since Nov. 10, relayed Wednesday that he expects to return to action within the Bruins' next two games, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports.
With that in mind, Carlo could return to action as soon as Thursday against the Islanders or if not then, Saturday against the Red Wings. Carlo skated with Steven Kampfer at practice Wednesday, with his looming availability arriving at a perfect time, considering that fellow blueliner Kevan Miller will be out for at least five weeks due to a larynx injury.
Carlo (upper body) will not play against the Canadiens on Saturday, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports.
Carlo remains on injured reserve and there's no clear timetable for his return. The Bruins reportedly will welcome John Moore (lower body) back for Friday's home game against the Penguins, but there are still four Boston blueliners toiling on injured reserve.
Carlo (upper body) has been placed on injured reserve, per the NHL's media site.
The Bruins' blueliner missed Sunday's game against the Golden Knights and has just two assists on the season, both of which came back on Oct. 13. Even when healthy, Carlo offers little to fantasy owners. However, it appears he'll now miss an extended period with an upper-body injury.
Carlo (upper body) will not play Wednesday against the Avalanche.
Carlo didn't travel for the beginning of a four-game road trip, but so far, the Bruins have been reluctant to rule him out for any of the three subsequent contests against the Stars, Coyotes or Red Wings. Jakub Zboril has been called up from AHL Providence as a reinforcement option with Carlo out of commission.
