RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Connor Carrick.
A surprise selection for the Capitalsí opening night roster for the 2013-2014 season, the 20-year-old Carrick had an interesting rookie season in the professional ranks. His puck-moving skills earned him 34 games with the Capitals in 2013-2014, where he recorded a goal and five assists. Carrick also joined fellow Caps prospect Riley Barber on Team USA for the IIHF Under-20 World Junior Championships in Sweden. Carrick possesses some top-6 upside in the NHL ranks, but is likely to spend the balance of 2014-2015 in Hershey of the AHL, but may see some games as an injury call-up.
Carrick is a dark horse to make the NHL roster in 2013-2014 but as the preseason ends, all signs indicate he will be in Washington to start the season. The 19-year old from Michigan is just 5' 10", weighing a mere 197 pounds but he has impressed during training camp. His fantasy value is marginal at best to start the season.
