Carter is pretty much on the 2nd PP unit and 2nd PK unit. So Ovie is bound to shoot more because he's not good enough to use in defensive situations which allows him more time on offence.
Also, Carter and other snipers shoot high and wide because almost every goalie plays in the butterfly position so the top corners are exposed. That's playing the percentages.
Yeah, this can't be said enough... it be far more irritating if Carter was chest sniping every glorious chance.
