Observations:

September 2017 - Carcone was a standout at last summer’s prospect camp and is doing the same thing this year. His play throughout the Young Stars’ tournament is in part thanks to his age (21) but is promising nonetheless. With strong vision and a quick and heavy release, Carcone is a dark horse to steal some headlines in Utica this season despite some more prestigious names joining the fold this fall. Cam Robinson

September 2017 – Carcone took an indirect route towards the NHL. He didn’t step into the CHL until his 18-year-old season, but was productive through two campaigns with Drummonville. He recorded 47 markers and 89 points in 66 contests in 2015-16 - good enough to earn himself a contract with the Canucks that June. Carcone had a solid rookie campaign in the AHL last season which displayed improvements in his two-way game and positioning. The transition into the professional game takes time and while he struggled to produce for the first half of the season, his production rose steadily in the back portion. The 21-year-old winger is looking to push up the lineup this year for the Comets and see his point totals rise along with his stock in the organization.  Cam Robinson

Fantasy Outlook: C

Undersized winger with good offensive tools and a willingness to engage.  Potential middle-six contributor.
