NCAA standout Carey to make ‘Hawks debut tonight

Mar 28, 2014, 7:40 PM EDT


The Chicago Blackhawks will give former St. Lawrence University sniper Matt Carey his NHL debut tonight, inserting him into the lineup against the Senators in Ottawa.

Carey, 22, signed a two-year deal with the ‘Hawks as an undrafted free agent following his freshman campaign with St. Lawrence, in which he scored 37 points in 38 games. He shared the team lead in goals (18), while ranking second in points and power play goals (11).

Based on the morning skate, it looked as though Carey would debut on the third line with Brandon Saad and Peter Regin.

    The team pulled the classic prank: let the kid charge out first for warm-ups and let him skate around for a bit on his own.

      Could have been worse….make him skate out on his own then tell him he had been traded to the Leafs!

    Cody Ceci’s shot went off of him and into the net for Ottawa’s second goal of the game. Harsh introduction to the NHL, but it’s a game of bounces.
