William Carrier

Darren Walker

Carrier is a big power winger who is not afraid to use his size and strength to his advantage. His skating is currently a deficiency but it is improving as his foot speed and acceleration are both getting better. He has a heavy stick when he needs to especially when he spins off the cycle from the wall and drives to the net. He’s hard to knock off the puck, aggressive and strong in battles along the wall, a real beast on the forecheck aggressively finishing his checks on defenders. He handles the puck well and has a few one-on-one moves to beat defenders with. Can be a bull in a china shop if he wants to be. His heavy shot with a quick release is dangerous in close to the net where he can get a backhand or forehand up quickly. He’s willing to throw his weight around and drop the gloves with anyone getting in his way. Defensively, he comes back but plays in a passive way and will need to be coaches up in that regard. Spent much of the season in the press box as an ankle injury caused him to miss half his teams games. (May 2013)
