Observations:

October 2016 - Carr looks to officially have a third line left-wing role locked down entering the 2016-17 season. His beautful goal in exhibition play against the Boston Bruins only solidified his potential full-time job with the Habs, as the soon to be 25-year-old has had an impressive training camp to date. Carr looks quicker, and stronger on his skates than he did a year ago, so as I've said before: Don't be surprised if a 20-goal campaign is on the horizon. Mike Barrett

July 2016 - Carr, the club`s best goal scorer for the month of December (four) inked a two-year, one-way contract (725k AAV) on the opening day of free agency with the Canadiens. The former NCAA free agent is now officially an NHLer after displaying his scoring touch around the net in his limited time with the club before suffering a knee injury. He may not be the fastest skater or have ideal size, but he goes to the dirty areas and has a knack for making plays. A 20-goal season isn't out of the question for the top-nine winger. Mike Barrett

January 2016 - Another two points for Carr in a Montreal uniform has put the exclamation mark on his second pro season. After 17 points in 21 games for Hamilton (AHL), he earned a call-up to the big club and hasn't looked out of place. Even when Brendan Gallagher returned from injury the Habs couldn't send Carr back down. For now, he's playing with Alex Galchenyuk and Lars Eller. You can follow the details of his NHL season here.

March 2015 - After a slow start to the campaign while adjusting to the pro game, Carr has really turned the corner. In 30 games since the last update, he has 20 points and now ranks fifts on the Bulldogs with 32 points. Even more impressive is that he leads the club with 20 goals and a plus-16 rating. With that said, he still projects as a bottom-six forward with limited fantasy appeal. Eric Daoust 

 

December 2014 - Carr has established himself as a depth wingerwith the Hamilton Bulldogs. With just 12 points through 30 games, any slim hope of him turning into a potential scoring line winger after finishing his college career on such a high note are probably doomed. Eric Daoust

 

April 2014 – Carr ended his college career with a bang as he led Union College with 50 points in 39 games while winning the nationalchampionship. The 22-year-old followed up by signing with the Canadiens, which will provide him with a good opportunity to make the jump to the NHL before long. Carr offensive upside at the pro level may be limited, but his overall effectiveness in all three zones will help him latch on in the bottom-six within the next year or two. In fantasy leagues he is low-risk but his usefulness will likely be limited to leagues that count peripheral categories such as hits and blocked shots. Eric Daoust

 

Fantasy Outlook: B-

Decent offensive upside and his star-caliber college game is translating to the pros nicely.
