WHALERS' CONNOR CARRICK LOOKS TO MAKE AN IMPACT: Matt Mackinder of Michigan Hockey Magazine profiles Carrick:

After Connor Carrick gave up a full ride to the University of Michigan to instead play in the Ontario Hockey League with the Plymouth Whalers, some wondered if his previous two years with the U.S. National Team Development Program would prepare him for the OHL grind.

In the simplest of answers – yes.

Carrick, an 18-year-old defenseman with the Whalers, said his early-season adjustment period went smoothly, and now he wants to elevate his game to a higher level. More importantly, he wants to see the Whalers start to elevate their overall game and pull away in what has become a crowded West Division.

“One thing I’ve learned about this league is that if you want to be considered a contender, you have to be a dominant team and be consistently dominant,” said Carrick, a Chicago-area native. “I think we have another level here. With the NTDP, I saw other (USHL) team’s best every night and some of those teams just plain didn’t like us for one reason or another. Here, you play a team like Windsor and you get hit more in the first five minutes than you would the whole game against most other teams.
