History

2009-10: Trevor Carrick appeared in three Tier 2 junior games with the Upper Canada Patriots and skated for the Markham Majors Midget AAA team. He had 1 assist and 2 penalty minutes in his brief stint with the Patriots. He had 29 points in 49 games with the Majors. Carrick was selected by Mississauga St. Michael’s in the fifth round (85th overall) of the 2010 OHL Priority Draft.

2010-11: Carrick spent the season with the Stouffville Spirit in the Ontario Junior Hockey League. In 40 games he scored 6 goals with 13 assists and 44 penalty minutes. In the playoffs he was Stouffville’s third-leading scorer with 2 goals and 11 assists in 19 games. The Spirit reached the OJHL semifinals before falling to eventual champ Wellington.

2011-12: Carrick skated in 68 games for Mississauga St. Michael’s in his first OHL season. He scored 13 goals with 19 assists and was minus-five with 64 penalty minutes. After reaching the Memorial Cup in 2010-11, the Majors finished last in the Central Division and were eliminated by Barrie in a six-game first-round playoff series. Carrick scored 1 goal and was minus-one with 7 penalty minutes in the series. He was invited to the NHL Draft Combine and ranked 44th amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting’s final rankings prior to the 2012 NHL Draft.

2012-13: Carrick returned to Mississauga for a second season, skating for the newly-christened Steelheads. After struggling in the first half of the season, he showed progress in the second half – particularly when paired with Toronto prospect Stuart Percy. In 56 games Carrick scored 10 goals with 21 assists and was -1 with 56 penalty minutes. Mississauga made the playoffs despite finishing fifth in the Central Division. Carrick had 2 assists and was -5 with 11 penalty minutes in the six-game series with Belleville.

2013-14: Carrick returned to Mississauga for his third OHL season after attending training camp with Carolina and was obtained by the Sudbury Wolves in a trade deadline deal with the Steelheads in January. He scored 16 goals with 15 assists and was minus-8 with 65 penalty minutes in 41 games for Mississauga. Following the trade he scored 6 goals with 14 assists and was +2 with 52 penalty minutes in 29 games for Sudbury. The Wolves finished second in the Central Division and lost to Barrie in a first round playoff series. Carrick scored 1 goal, a power play goal, with 2 assists and was minus-1 with 10 penalty minutes in five playoff games. He signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Hurricanes in December 2013. 

Talent Analysis

A two-way defensemen with a knack for physicality, Carrick has some of the tools in place to become a standout defender. He displayed some offensive elements to his game in his final season of junior hockey but is expected to be more of a stay-at-home defender with a physical component to his game at the pro level.

Future

Carrick attended training camp with the Hurricanes and was assigned to AHL affiliate Charlotte to start his first pro season in 2014-15. Seeing steady ice time for the Checkers as a 20-year-old, he has been solid, if not outstanding, in the early part of the season and should develop his game in all three zones as he becomes more accustomed to pro hockey. While he is not expected to have the offensive upside of Ryan Murphy or the size and impact defensive game of Haydn Fleury, fellow Hurricanes' prospects, he projects to being a solid defender in the future and could fit in well in a second or third pair role in Carolina.

Since the days of Mats Naslund, the Montreal Canadiens have been on the forefront of European scouting. This is the organization that drafted Viacheslav Fetisov in 1978 and Vladislav Tretiak in 1983, anticipating the Russian invasion by over a decade. Even a cursory glance over their NHL roster confirms that the Habs have nurtured a fruitful European pipeline. The newest batch of European talent features crafty wingers like Artturi Lehkonen and Martin Reway, who are looking to follow in the steps of Naslund. Read more»

With the exception of Will Butcher, it still remains to be seen just where the Avalanche’s NCAA and European prospects fit into the team’s long-term plans.

Butcher is a big part of the University of Denver Pioneers blueline and has had international success with Team USA in junior tournaments. Ben Storm, however, has not seen much more than bottom pairing minutes with his respective NCAA team. Both get the chance to participate in the NCAA Tournament however.
