I saw Carrier a few weeks back in Val D'or, where he impressed me very much. Played very well in the two games I saw, picking up 5 points and working hard at both ends of the ice. Scored a goal on a terrific slapshot that would have been the envy of any pro player.
Since then he had a poor spell however where he tried to do too much and ended up turning the puck over far too often and being responsible for several goals against. Unfortunately there were lots of scouts in Cape Breton to see him last Friday night where he was subpar at home.
He does not have a lot to play with, and it can lead to him trying to do too much. He is going to have to play with more consistency to be a first rounder, but I think the talent is there. Has a great shot, and since losing 15 pounds in the summer, his skating has improved to the point where it's no longer a red flag for scouts.
