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.

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.
Carrick appears to be a defensive defenseman with some potential to add an offensive component to his game. But his main stock in trade is defense, and he certainly has the hockey sense to be an effective defender at the NHL level. Carrick will need to add some muscle to his frame to handle the bigger bodies he'll face more consistently in the NHL.
Carrick likely has at least a couple more seasons of junior hockey before he turns pro.
