Top Alexandre Carrier News

  • Predators' Alexandre Carrier: Good to go

    Carrier (upper body) practiced with Group B in Thursday's first on-ice practice session at Predators training camp, Nick Kieser of Nashville Hockey Now reports.

    Carrier missed most of the latter half of the campaign in 2022-23. He was limited to just nine points, 67 blocked shots and 57 hits over 43 contests, dropping from a top-pairing role in 2021-22 to a fringe role due to his injuries. He'll have to earn his spot back in 2023-24, especially following the addition of Luke Schenn in free agency.

  • Predators' Alexandre Carrier: Reaches one-year deal

    Carrier (upper body) signed a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Predators on Saturday, per PuckPedia.

    Carrier was a restricted free agent prior to the deal. The 26-year-old defenseman was limited to 43 games last season, recording two goals, seven assists, 67 blocked shots and 57 hits. He'll likely play a bottom-four role for the Predators in 2023-24 before potentially reaching unrestricted free agency next summer.

  • Predators' Alexandre Carrier: Out 4-6 weeks

    Carrier (upper body) is expected to miss 4-6 weeks, Alex Daugherty of AtoZ Sports Nashville reports.

    Carrier was injured in Thursday's 2-1 win over Florida following a shot block. He has supplied nine points, 48 shots on goal, 67 blocks and 57 hits in 43 contests this campaign. There is a chance that Carrier could return before the end of the season.

  • Predators' Alexandre Carrier: Suffers injury Thursday

    Carrier (undisclosed) didn't complete Thursday's game versus the Panthers, Emma Lingan of the Predators' official site reports.

    Carrier didn't feature in the final 40 minutes of the contest, though it's unclear what prompted his exit. This was his third game back from an upper-body injury, though it's not clear if his exit Thursday is related to the previous issue. The Predators' road trip continues Saturday in Chicago.

  • Predators' Alexandre Carrier: Draws helper in return

    Carrier notched an assist, two blocked shots, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Coyotes.

    Carrier ended up missing a month with an upper-body injury, right in line with his expected 4-to-6 week timeline. The 26-year-old worked on the second pairing and saw 19:36 of ice time in this contest. Carrier has nine points, 46 shots on net, 64 blocked shots, 55 hits, 27 PIM and a minus-1 rating through 41 appearances. He should stick in a top-four role the rest of the way, so he may have some appeal in deeper fantasy formats if he can get his offense on track.

    Carrier (upper body) is in Sunday's lineup against Arizona, Emma Lingan of the Predators' official site reports.

  • Predators' Alexandre Carrier: Facing extended absence

    Carrier is expected to be sidelined for 4-6 weeks with an upper-body injury.

    Given the expected length of Carrier's absence, it wouldn't be surprising to see him land on injured reserve in the coming days. Kevin Gravel, who was recalled Thursday, will likely be a regular in the Predators' lineup until Carrier, who's picked up eight points through 40 games this season, is ready to return.

  • Predators' Alexandre Carrier: Doesn't finish Tuesday's game

    Carrier didn't complete Tuesday's game versus the Jets, Emma Lingan of the Predators' official site reports.

    Carrier logged just 4:40 of ice time in the contest, as well as five PIM for fighting. The defenseman's status should be considered day-to-day ahead of Thursday's contest versus the Devils, though it's possible the Predators opt to hold him out since they have their bye week before the All-Star break.

  • Predators' Alexandre Carrier: Notches two assists Saturday

    Carrier registered two assists in a 5-3 win against Los Angeles on Saturday.

    Carrier has two goals and eight points in 39 games in 2022-23. This was his first multi-point game of the season. He also contributed an assist against St. Louis on Thursday, so perhaps he's heating up.

  • Predators' Alexandre Carrier: Good to go Monday

    Carrier (upper body) will suit up Monday against Calgary, Robby Stanley of 102.5 The Game reports.

  • Predators' Alexandre Carrier: Game-time call Monday

    Carrier (upper body) is a game-time decision for Monday's contest versus Calgary, per Emma Lingan of the Predators' official site.

    Carrier missed Saturday's 5-3 loss to Buffalo because of the injury. He has two goals and five points in 35 contests this season. If Carrier is able to return Monday, then Roland McKeown might be a healthy scratch.

    Carrier (undisclosed) will not play against Buffalo on Saturday, Emma Lingan of the Predators' official site reports.

  • Predators' Alexandre Carrier: Nets OT tally

    Carrier scored the overtime winner during Monday's 4-3 victory over the visiting Oilers.

    Carrier, who dressed for the first time since Dec. 10, converted his first game-winning tally in 125 career games. The 26-year-old defenseman received a 135-foot transition pass from Cody Glass and scored off a 2-on-1 breakaway, his second in 24 games this season. Carrier added two shots and a plus-1 rating against the Oilers.

  • Predators' Alexandre Carrier: Ready to rock

    Carrier (upper body) will return to the lineup Monday versus Edmonton, Emma Lingan of the Predators' official site reports.

  • Predators' Alexandre Carrier: Labeled week-to-week

    Carrier is considered week-to-week with an upper-body injury, Nashville announced Monday.

    Carrier could be a candidate for injured reserve given his recovery timeline, which would free up a roster spot for the Predators. Considering the 26-year-old blueliner has one point in 23 games this season, few fantasy players will be impacted by his absence. In his stead, the team called up Roland McKeown and Kevin Gravel from the minors, both of whom figure to play against St. Louis on Monday.

  • Predators' Alexandre Carrier: Injured Saturday

    Carrier was injured during Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Senators, reports Bryan Bastin of

    Carrier did not see any ice time past the 7:09 mark of the second period. After the game, coach John Hynes had no update on the injury or a possible timetable for Carrier's return, so consider him day-to-day for now.

  • Predators' Alexandre Carrier: Still searching for first point

    Carrier skated a season-high 19:39 in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Lightning, but his point drought reached 16 games.

    Following his tidy 30-point effort last season, Carrier has been unable to get anything going offensively so far this year. Even after serving as a healthy scratch for consecutive games earlier in November, Carrier has produced nothing but goose eggs in the five games since rejoining the lineup. He should be firmly on your fantasy bench, if rostered at all, until he can find a way to right the ship.

  • Predators' Alexandre Carrier: Can't crack scoresheet

    Carrier is pointless through seven games so far this season.

    Since the Preds acquired Ryan McDonagh in the offseason, Carrier has been demoted to the team's third defensive pairing. That's resulted in his average TOI declining from about 21 minutes last year to about 17 minutes currently, although he's still seeing close to two minutes per night on the power play. Carrier recorded an impressive 30 points in 77 games last season, but it's hard to envision him replicating that feat given his current situation.

  • Predators' Alexandre Carrier: Collects assist in Game 2 loss

    Carrier notched an assist, four hits, four blocked shots and two PIM in Thursday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Avalanche.

    Carrier helped out on Yakov Trenin's first-period tally. The assist was Carrier's second in his last four games, three of which have been against the Avalanche. The 25-year-old blueliner was productive with 30 points and 124 blocked shots in 77 regular-season contests, and he'll likely continue to play on the second pairing.

  • Predators' Alexandre Carrier: Generates helper Thursday

    Carrier logged an assist, four shots on goal, three blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 5-4 shootout win over the Avalanche.

    Carrier's offense has gone quiet in April -- he has just three points in 14 contests this month. The 25-year-old's defensive skill and physicality have kept him in a top-four role despite the scoring slump. He's at 30 points, 95 shots on net, 93 hits, 123 blocked shots and a plus-26 rating through 76 contests in his first full NHL campaign.
