The Nashville Predators have recalled defenseman Alex Carrier from the Milwaukee Admirals. It is his first career NHL call up and Carrier becomes the first member of the Predators’ 2015 NHL Draft Class to make it to the NHL.
This season is Carrier’s first as a pro but you really wouldn’t be able to tell that from watching the 20-year old play. He has been the Admirals best all-around defenseman this season and recently earned a selection to the 2017 AHL All-Star Classic. Carrier is tied for third among rookie defenseman in the AHL this season in scoring with 22 points (4 goals, 18 assists) in 35 games.
Carrier’s call up comes prior tonight’s Predators home game against the Boston Bruins. Should he play tonight he would follow Frédérick Gaudreau, Mike Liambas, and Vladislav Kamenev as NHL debutants from the Admirals this season. Should he debut he would wear his #55 that Admirals fans are accustomed to seeing him wear as it is his rookie number for the Predators.
