Vegas Golden Knights
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Having been left exposed by the Sabres for the expansion draft, Carrier was selected by the Golden Knights prior to their inaugural season. The 23-year-old appeared in 37 games for Vegas where he managed three points (one goal) and 19 PIM. Carrier was a great goal-scorer in junior, but it's yet to translate to the NHL level. Even if he managed to earn himself a bottom-six role in training camp, Carrier hasn't shown anything that would make him worth targeting in 2018-19 fantasy leagues. Read Past Outlooks

Carrier dished out eight hits versus Columbus on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Carrier was making his first appearance in the lineup since Jan. 4 due to an undisclosed injury, but clearly was feeling 100 percent, as he was willing to take on contact. The winger logged just 10:36 of ice time and figures to continue seeing limiting minutes in a bottom-six role the rest of the way.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2015
Plucked from the Sabres by Vegas in the expansion draft, Carrier is a speedy, tenacious checking winger who has plied his trade in the AHL for two seasons and is ready for a regular NHL role. He scored just eight points in 43 games with the Sabres last year, but his playing time was limited and he’s seemingly just scratching the surface of his ability. The 2013 second-round pick will play a bottom-six role to begin with, perhaps with some time on the penalty kill, but he'll have opportunities to move up the Golden Knights’ thin depth chart as he continues to develop.
The former second-round pick acclimated himself well in his rookie season at AHL Rochester, appearing in 63 games and scoring seven goals and 21 points. A slew of injuries stalled his development, but the two-way scoring winger seems to be back on track. It's unlikely he’ll see action with Buffalo at all this season, instead serving as a second or third-line winger with Rochester.
