Observations

June 2018 – At 27 years old, Carpenter is on the verge of no longer being considered a prospect. It’s been a long journey after spending three years in the NCAA and signing as a free agent with the San Jose Sharks. After spending three-and-a-half years in their system and bouncing between the minors and the NHL, Carpenter was placed on waivers and quickly snapped up by the Vegas Golden Knights in December 2017. He was a solid addition and remained with Vegas increasing his production by tripling his career point totals in half a year with the Golden Knights. He accumulated 14 points, including nine goals, in 36 regular season games. The consistency that he brought translated into over 14 minutes of ice-time per game in the 17 games he suited up for Vegas in their surprising Stanley Cup run. He has a fairly low ceiling from a fantasy perspective but adds a physical dimension in a faced tempo game to help provide depth scoring. Mason Black

 

July 2017 – With the turnover on the San Jose Sharks’ forward lines, Carpenter should be expected to be in the mix for a roster spot with the big club. He played 11 games for the Sharks last season and did not look out of place at all with two goals and two assists. With the AHL’s Barracuda, Carpenter was a leader on the ice, in the locker room and with the media. He is a character player who plays a 200-foot game and it’s hard to point to any deficiencies in his game; he simply does everything well. The attention to detail in Carpenter’s game has not gone unnoticed, and if he is not on the Sharks’ roster in a bottom-six role to start the season, he will be on the short list for a callup should injuries strike, especially down the middle. Zachary DeVine
