William Carrier's Player Profile

Carrier had an impressive season despite the mitigating factors of Cape Breton's struggles as a team and a midseason ankle injury, which kept him out for the second half of the campaign. His best skill is his truly plus skating. He has explosiveness with his feet, and he can easily pick up speed and push the pace in transition. He couples speed with offensive ability, as he can be a quality playmaker, with a hard shot. His puck skills, however, are fairly average, and while he has the creativity to make some moves, I would not describe him as an overly fluid or coordinated puck handler. When Carrier is on, he has the physical ability to own the puck and do well along the boards. Consistency is his area of concern. A few sources praise his work ethic and believe it to be plus, while others say he shows a fluctuating willingness to play the body.

Has the frame and style of play to play a power forward role at the NHL level… Possesses a heavy shot with adept playmaking ability… Foot speed is an area that needs to improve next year as a late birthdate… Rough around the edges but has some intriguing upside.
