SCOUTING REPORT
"Carrier has been inconsistent in his play when healthy, and with injuries late in the year he was not able to finish strong. We feel that Carrier's game does not translate as well at (the) next level; he plays (a) power forward type game, however his skating is just average and he doesn't engage enough. He displays excellent offensive instincts, directs everything at the net, and is not afraid to drive net hard, but it's difficult to project him in an offensive role at the next level without improved skating." -- ISS 2013 Draft Guide
