Observations:

June 2018 – In his first season with the Golden Knights Carrier spent the entire year in the NHL, for the first time in his career. Unfortunately it was derailed multiple times with extensive injuries, and he was only able to suit up for 37 games – posting one goal and two assists. He is a power forward that isn’t afraid to throw his body around, but outside of bangers and mash type leagues, he doesn’t hold much fantasy value. That being said, he had one of the worst IPPs in the entire NHL, which is a stat that typically regresses back to league averages. So, one can expect that if he’s able to stay healthy and maintain in the Vegas lineup he should be able to produce at a higher pace by contributing more on the offensive side compared to what he did this past year.

December 2016 – William Carrier has impressed many with his offensive zone awareness, elusiveness, and contribution in his own end this year with the Sabres as well as the Amerks. Carrier received a recall November 4th and has stuck with the club, discounting some assignments during off-days, through the remainder of the month. Carrier notched his first NHL goal on a tip-in past former Cape Breton Screaming Eagle, Marc-André Fleury. Carrier has been put on the Sabres top line and counted on as being the gritty playmaker for Ryan O’Reilly and Kyle Okposo. Max
