Bruins' Brandon Carlo: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlo (concussion) told reporters he would have already returned to action had the NHL season not gone on hiatus, per Joe McDonald of The Athletic.

Getting Carlo back in the lineup will bolster the Bruins' blue line once (if) the season resumes. The 22-year-old needs just one more point to reach the 20-point mark for the first time in his career but might miss that threshold if the league opts to go right into the postseason. The Colorado native is never going to be an elite scorer but could provide solid, low-cost fantasy value in both season-long and DFS formats.

Bruins' Brandon Carlo: Ruled out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlo (upper body) will miss Tuesday's road clash with the Flyers, Amalie Benjamin of reports.

Carlo still isn't right after taking an elbow to the head Thursday against Florida. He'll sit Tuesday, but the defenseman could be back Friday against Buffalo, aided by a few extra days off. John Moore figures to dress in Carlo's place.

Bruins' Brandon Carlo: No-go Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlo (upper body) won't play Saturday against Tampa Bay, Amalie Benjamin of reports.

Carlo exited Thursday's win over the Panthers with an upper-body injury after taking an elbow to the head from Florida's Evgenii Dadonov and will miss at least one more contest as a result. With Carlo on the mend, John Moore will draw into the lineup against the Lightning.

Bruins' Brandon Carlo: Done for night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlo sustained an upper-body injury and won't return to Thursday's game against Florida.

Carlo was on the wrong end of an Evgenii Dadonov elbow to the head in the second period, and he won't return after just 10:24 of ice time. It was a dangerous reverse hit to the head by Dadonov that was assessed just a two-minute elbowing penalty. Carlo will likely be evaluated on a day-to-day basis, and in his absence, the team will roll with five defensemen for the remainder of the contest.

Bruins' Brandon Carlo: Sets up game-winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlo recorded an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Friday's 4-3 win over the Flames.

Carlo's shot attempt early in the second period was tipped in for a goal by Brad Marchand. The defenseman snapped a six-game point drought with his helper. He's at a career-high 18 points in 61 games this year. Carlo has also added 120 hits, 100 shots and 71 blocks.

Bruins' Brandon Carlo: Back as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlo (personal) is back with the team and will be in the lineup for Sunday's clash with Detroit, Joe Haggerty of NBC Sports Boston reports.

Carlo missed Saturday's game against Arizona while tending to a personal matter, but his absence will be short-lived as expected. Carlo will be a nice boost to the lineup, as he's accumulated 17 points, 88 shots on net and 106 hits through 55 games this campaign. With the 23-year-old's return, John Moore will stay in the lineup, with Jeremy Lauzon the likely party to exit.

Bruins' Brandon Carlo: Unavailable against Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlo (personal) won't be available for Saturday's game against the Coyotes.

Although Carlo will miss Saturday's contest, he's fully expected to be back in the lineup for Sunday's matchup with Detroit, so his absence will be short-lived. John Moore is expected to take Carlo's spot in the lineup against Arizona.

Bruins' Brandon Carlo: Sets new career high
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlo picked up an assist in a 4-0 shutout of the Canucks on Tuesday.

With 17 points now on the season, Carlo has set a new career high for points, surpassing the 16 points he put up in his rookie season. Carlo struggled to contribute offensively during the past, but he has found his groove this year while paired with Torey Krug.

Bruins' Brandon Carlo: Ends in positives
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlo ended Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Penguins with an assist, four shots and a plus-3 rating.

Carlo was one of only three Bruins skaters to end the contest with a positive rating after the team blew an early 3-0 lead in the loss. In more positive news for Carlo, his assist brings him to 15 points on the season -- only one behind his career high.

Bruins' Brandon Carlo: Racks up hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlo threw five hits and collected two blocks in a 5-4 win over the Jets on Thursday.

Carlo's 82 total hits through 45 games put him at 28th in the league in hits by defensemen. He is on pace to pass the career-high 134 that he set last season, as well as set a new personal best in points. So far this season, Carlo has four goals and 13 points, only three behind the amount he set in his rookie season.

Bruins' Brandon Carlo: Pots empty-net goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlo iced the game with an empty-net goal in a 3-0 shutout of the Sabres on Friday.

Points keep adding up for Carlo, who is already only four behind the career high of 16 he set in 2016-17 -- his rookie season. With Torey Krug (upper body) out for at least the next couple of games and Charlie McAvoy (undisclosed) still considered day-to-day, Carlo will see an increased role in the short term. However, with power-play duties on the second unit being given to John Moore and Steven Kampfer, don't expect much of a jump in offense for Carlo.

Bruins' Brandon Carlo: Gets lucky bounce
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlo scored his third goal of the season in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Kings.

In another example of good things happening when you throw the puck on net, Carlo's shot from the half-boards took a deflection off of Kings defenseman Matt Roy and snuck into the back of the goal. It was the first goal in 23 games and the first point in eight for Carlo, who is still on pace to set a career high in points this season. He has 11 points in 35 games, only five behind the career high he set as a rookie in 2016-17.

Bruins' Brandon Carlo: Big birthday win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlo picked up an assist in Tuesday's 8-1 win over the Canadiens.

What a birthday gift for Carlo, who turned 23 the same day. Already up 5-1 in the game, Carlo threw a shot on goal from the blue line that David Pastrnak tipped in to cap off his three-goal night. Carlo seems to have found his offensive legs again with eight points in 24 games -- already halfway to the career-high of 16 points he put up in his rookie season.

Bruins' Brandon Carlo: Continues shut-down role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlo picked up two hits and two blocks in 20:48 of ice time in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Devils.

Carlo led the Bruins penalty kill unit, skating 2:23 and blanking the Devils on both attempts, with New Jersey only managing to get one shot off with the man advantage. Through 21 games Carlo has seven points with 30 hits and 16 blocked shots.

Bruins' Brandon Carlo: Goal flutters in
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlo continued his three-game point streak with a goal in a 5-1 win over the Sharks on Tuesday.

After scoring only two goals all last season, Carlo has scored two over the last three games. This one came off an off-balance shot from the blue line that just looped over the goalie. With five points total through 12 games, the 22-year-old is already halfway towards last season's total of 10 through 72 games. He's never been known as a point producer in the NHL, but he is on his way to topping the career high of 16 points he set in his rookie season.

Bruins' Brandon Carlo: Dishes two secondary assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlo registered two assists, three shots on net and two blocked shots in Sunday's 7-4 win over the Rangers.

Carlo registered 20:50 TOI in this contest, and he now has four points through 11 games. That puts him on pace to shatter last year's 10-point mark, and he's living up to his second-round pedigree. Carlo could be worth a stash in deep fantasy leagues and dynasty formats, as he's seemingly cemented onto the second pairing.

Bruins' Brandon Carlo: Shuts down Ducks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlo recorded one shot, three hits and a block in 20:56 of ice time during Monday's 4-2 win over Anaheim.

Carlo also skated 4:11 on the penalty kill, helping the Bruins hold the Ducks scoreless through four power-play opportunities. Six games into the season, Carlo has logged just one helper and a plus-2 rating. His defensive skills don't translate well to fantasy, but Carlo's shutdown play on that front is critical to the team's success.

Bruins' Brandon Carlo: Sets up GWG
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlo produced an assist and two hits in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Golden Knights.

Carlo's helper came on the eventual game-winning goal by Torey Krug at 2:27 of the second period. The 22-year-old blueliner has never topped 16 points in a season, with 33 points in 233 career games over three-plus seasons. He's not likely to attract fantasy attention outside of deep formats.

Bruins' Brandon Carlo: Signs two-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlo has signed a two-year deal with the Bruins at an annual cap hit of $2.85 million.

After the Bruins re-signed fellow RFA Charlie McAvoy, Carlo's contract became a priority, and the 22-year-old blueliner ended up signing a bridge deal that is pretty team-friendly, considering Boston's cap situation. The 6-foot-5, 212-pound Carlo isn't much of a fantasy factor, having logged just two goals and 10 points in 72 games last season, but he maintains plenty of value for the B's as a reliable shut-down defender.

September 12, 2019 11:12 AM
Bruins' Brandon Carlo: Absent from camp roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlo is not on the Bruins' training camp roster due to his lingering contract dispute.

Carlo is one of 16 restricted free agents, along with teammate Charlie McAvoy, who have yet to sign new deals as training camps begin. Columbus' Zach Werenski likely set the defensemen market with his three-year, $15 million contract. Carlo could be waiting to see what the club gives McAvoy before finalizing his terms, as he can be expected to take in less given his lower offensive output.
