Observations:

March 2018 – Scoring 19 points in 20 AHL games, Daniel Carr was recalled by the Canadiens in December and though he has been a healthy scratch on many nights, he has appeared in the lineup far more often recently as part of a regular fourth line rotation with Logan Shaw, Nic Deslauriers, Byron Froese and Jacob De La Rose. Carr brings the same level of energy and effort every night and pretty consistently from shift-to-shift. He is small but regularly out-works people for the puck and always brings the puck to the dirty areas. Carr also possesses good quickness and a soft set of hands and is a compliment to any type of player he is lined up with. His 13 points and plus-3 rating are very good considering his ice-time and team, and at 26-years-old is coming into his prime. Keep an eye on what happens with Carr this summer and whether or not he will be a part of this Habs team going forward as his contract expires and he hits RFA status. A greater opportunity to showcase his talents may be what is best for both camps at this point. Mike Barrett

December 2017 – After making a good first impression as a rookie, Carr never nailed down an NHL roster spot due to a few things including injuries and changes in the Canadiens organization. Starting this season in the AHL, Carr quietly put up 19 points (11 goals) in 20 games for the less than star-studded Laval Rocket and has followed that up with nine points in eight games since being recalled by Montreal. Carr plays on the fourth line but does receive power-play opportunities and is a consistent threat in the O-zone. While his more than point-per-game pace won't continue, Carr is an offensive player who finds ways to produce and could be a good long-term, low-cost investment. Mike Barrett

October 2016 – Carr looks to officially have a third line left-wing role locked down entering the 2016-17 season.
