Carpenter, 31, joined the Blackhawks as a free agent signing on July 1, 2019. Primarily in a bottom-six role, Carpenter played 168 games with Chicago while netting 10 goals with 21 assists and an average ice time of 13:17 during his three seasons with the Blackhawks. This season, Carpenter appeared in 59 games with three goals and eight assists while ranking third on the team with 123 hits. His faceoff percentage was at 52.3 percent, which was third among Blackhawks players who’d been in at least 100 faceoffs (Jonathan Toews first at 57.6, Jujhar Khaira second at 52.5).
A veteran of seven NHL seasons that included stints with the San Jose Sharks and Vegas Golden Knights, Carpenter has played in 300 NHL games with 26 goals and 42 assists. But he should soon add to his career total of 26 postseason games.
Ryan Carpenter, traded to CGY, is a decent 4th line defensive forward and PK specialist who struggles mightily to put the puck in the net. #Flames pic.twitter.com/1RDxqkAI1Q— JFresh (@JFreshHockey) March 21, 2022
