Blues agree to terms with draft pick Carrier
The Blues agree to terms on a three-year contract with forward William Carrier, a second-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft.

The St. Louis Blues announced Monday they have agreed to terms on a three-year contract with forward William Carrier, a second-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft.

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.

Carrier, 18, helped Canada win the bronze medal at the 2012 Under-18 World Championship. In three seasons and 161 games with Cape Breton, the 6-foot-1, 196-pound left wing has 51 goals and 73 assists.

Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
