Carrier, chosen with the 57th pick last month, played 34 games for Cape Breton of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League last season, scoring 16 goals and 26 assists.

Quote of the Day

For us it's a little bit different. I've never been in front of this much media. This is more than we've ever had to deal with in Tampa. I guess we're on a little bit bigger stage now. It's nice, you have to enjoy it. This doesn't happen too often.
