|Assets:||Has plenty of shift-disturbing qualities and the ability to drive opponents crazy. Can also drop the gloves. Is a solid hitter, as well as a versatile winger. Can play a regular shift when he's on his game.|
|Flaws:||Must reduce his side-show tactics and stick to playing hockey most of the time. Tends to take bad penalties. Lacks consistency. Since he's always targeted, and not overly big, injuries are often a factor.|
|Career Potential:||Agitating winger.|

Daniel Carillo has seven hits on Saturday | 05/19/2013 6:37 AM
NewsDaniel Carcillo led the Chicago Blackhawks in hits Saturday with seven.
ImpactCarcillo had only one hit in his first three playoff games this season so he took his game to another level Saturday. He is a bottom-six player at this stage of his career and should be taken in only deep, deep fantasy pools as such.
Carcillo gets his first point of '13 playoffs | 05/16/2013 8:53 AM
NewsDaniel Carcillo had his first point of the playoffs on Wednesday.
ImpactCarcillo assisted on Marcus Kruger's goal in Chicago's 4-1 win over Detroit. Carcillo started this season as a potential top-six forward, but he's been relegated to a supporting role. He's not expected to even play in every game, but his blend of physical play and limited offensive capabilities should help the Blackhawks in their playoff run.
Daniel Carcillo appears to be likely for Gm 4 | 05/07/2013 9:25 PM
NewsDaniel Carcillo is likely to play Tuesday in Game 4 versus Minnesota.
Chris Kuc on Twitter
ImpactIt looks like he'll suit up and Brandon Bollig will sit as a healthy scratch after playing in Chicago's previous postseason contests.
Daniel Carcillo 'could play' on Tuesday night | 05/07/2013 2:20 PM
NewsBlackhawks coach Joel Quenneville says Daniel Carcillo "could play" in Tuesday's Game 4.
Michael Russo on Twitter
ImpactCarcillo has been a healthy scratch for the first three games of the series but the Blackhawks could be looking to add more of an edge to their lineup for Game 4. With Quenneville, "could play" usually means "will play," but we likely won't have confirmation until pregame warmups.
Daniel Carcillo scores in 3-1 loss | 04/23/2013 2:02 AM
NewsDaniel Carcillo scored his second goal of the season in the Blackhawks 3-1 loss to the Vancouver Canucks.
ImpactCarcillo has dealt with a multitude of injuries over the past few seasons, and maybe this is the reason why the PIM's have dropped siginificantly. Or maybe he has made a concious effort to tone it down and focus on playing hockey instead. Either way, he has killed his greatest attribute, his PIM's, by his change of style. He's not a point producer either so if he isn't collecting PIM's, he has no fantasy value.
Daniel Carcillo fighting to stay in lineup | 04/11/2013 9:43 AM
NewsDaniel Carcillo has dealt with consistency issues since returning from a knee injury.
ImpactCarcillo has two points in 19 games while averaging 8:58 minutes per contests. That's quite a reversal of fortunes for a player that started the season on Chicago's top line. "I'm just trying to gear up for the stretch run and hopefully earn a spot in the lineup for the playoffs," Carcillo said. "Every day is kind of a new challenge. I just have to play every game almost perfect to stay in this lineup." Carcillo's physical play will probably be an asset for the Blackhawks during the postseason, but we don't expect him to battle back into a top-six position in what's left of the regular season or the playoffs.
Daniel Carcillo will suit up vs. Ducks Weds. | 03/20/2013 3:58 PM
NewsDaniel Carcillo will get back into Chicago's lineup Wednesday.
Chris Kuc on Twitter
ImpactHe has been a healthy scratch for the team's past three games. Carcillo has appeared in just 11 games this season, mostly because of injury, where he has collected two points, seven penalty minutes and 20 hits.
Daniel Carcillo a healthy scratch again | 03/19/2013 7:15 AM
NewsDaniel Carcillo was a healthy scratch for the fourth straight time Monday.
ImpactCarcillo was joined in the press box by Jamal Mayers and Sheldon Brookbank. Carcillo has not fully recovered from a knee injury suffered on opening night. His value is in penalty minutes so look elsewhere at this time.
Carcillo adjusting after lengthy injuries | 03/07/2013 9:36 AM
NewsAlthough Daniel Carcillo is healthy, he's still adjusting after barely playing over the last year.
ImpactInjuries have limited Carcillo to just 10 games since the start of 2012. "I still don't feel 100 percent out there. Body-wise I am, but mentally getting back into the game after missing almost 14 months, it's hard," Carcillo said. "I'm still getting back into the swing of things. It's nice to get rewarded, because it's been a long, hard road, that's for sure." Carcillo is referring to the fact that he netted the game-winner with 50 seconds remaining in regulation time in Chicago's 3-2 victory on Wednesday. That has to help his confidence.
Carcillo's late goal extends Hawks' streak | 03/06/2013 10:35 PM
NewsDaniel Carcillo's goal kept the Blackhawks' points streak alive with a 3-2 win over the Avalanche on Wednesday night.
ImpactWith Marian Hossa out with an upper-body injury, Carcillo received an increased role and it paid off big time. The agitator picked a good time to score his first goal of the season, potting it with 50 seconds left in the game. Jonathan Toews and Andrew Shaw had the other markers. This is an especially impressive win considering Chicago was down entering the third and Shaw and Patrick Sharp also left with injuries later in the tilt. The Hawks are now 21-0-3 with 11 wins in a row.
Daniel Carcillo doesn't mind his reputation | 02/27/2013 9:27 AM
NewsDaniel Carcillo doesn't necessarily mind the reputation he's built through nine suspensions and fines.
Impact"I definitely don't have much room out there, that's for sure," Carcillo said. "But I'm not going to look at it negatively. I kind of like the unpredictability that I have established. Because if (opponents) are worrying about me running around, they're not worrying about the other two guys on (my line). It's an advantage for us." He has 13 hits in three games since returning from a knee injury.
Daniel Carcillo plays 8:20 minutes in return | 02/23/2013 10:57 AM
NewsDaniel Carcillo played 8:20 minutes in his return from a knee injury.
ImpactCarcillo missed a month due to his knee problem. He started the season as a top-six forward, but he lost that spot during his time on the sidelines. That hurts his offensive potential, but he should still get plenty of PIM either way.
Chicago will get Daniel Carcillo back Friday | 02/22/2013 3:10 PM
NewsDaniel Carcillo (knee) will play on the fourth line Friday.
Chris Kuc on Twitter
ImpactWhen Carcillo sustained the injury, it looked like he'd get top-six minutes this season. Carcillo might have lost that opportunity for now, but he'll still be a good source of penalty minutes.
Daniel Carcillo ready, but won't play Tuesday | 02/19/2013 2:04 PM
NewsDaniel Carcillo (knee) says he's ready to return but won't play Tuesday night.
Chris Kuc on Twitter
ImpactCarcillo has played in only one game this season after being limited to 28 games last season. He has some fantasy value thanks to a decent scoring touch and heavy amounts of penalty minutes, but he's not worth stashing in most formats. Leave him on the waiver wire and monitor his progress.
Daniel Carcillo won't return Friday, is close | 02/15/2013 1:37 PM
NewsDaniel Carcillo (knee) will miss Friday's game.
Brian Hedger on Twitter
ImpactCarcillo did skate Friday and he's getting close to returning. He was limited to just 28 games last season and has played in only one contest in 2013.
Daniel Carcillo (knee) returns to practice | 02/14/2013 3:49 PM
NewsDaniel Carcillo (knee) practiced with his teammates for the first time since suffering a spained right knee Jan. 19.
Impact"Everything's going well," Carcillo said. "Rehab went well and I feel strong on the ice. It's just a matter of time when they'll make the decision and I'll get the call to go in. I feel strong. It's encouraging." He was hurt in the first game of the season after missing most of the 2011-12 campaign due to an injury to his other knee.
Where will Carcillo play when he's healthy? | 02/13/2013 9:46 AM
NewsDaniel Carcillo (knee) is getting close to returning, but the big question is where he'll play when he's healthy.
ImpactCarcillo started the season on the Blackhawks' first line, but Brandon Saad has looked good in that position in Carcillo's absence. "We love those kinds of decisions," Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said. "We welcome tough ones and depth is something we went into the start of the season -- you know you're going to get tested and challenged. Today we look relatively healthy. But we'll see. "
Daniel Carcillo joins Hawks at morning skate | 02/12/2013 2:15 PM
NewsDaniel Carcillo (lower body) skated with the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday morning.
Tracey Myers on Twitter
ImpactSteve Montador (concussion) also joined this morning's skate, although he remains sidelined indefinitely. Carcillo is expected to miss at least another week with the injury and should get top-six minutes upon his return. Carcillo has missed all but one game this season with the injury but did register an assist in his lone appearance.
Carcillo should resume skating this week | 02/06/2013 10:36 AM
NewsDaniel Carcillo (lower body) is expected to start skating this week, according to Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman.
ImpactCarcillo will probably be out for at least two more weeks. When he returns, he might end up getting top-six minutes with Chicago.
Carcillo still needs at least 2 more weeks | 02/05/2013 9:56 AM
NewsDaniel Carcillo (lower body) is expected to miss at least two more weeks.
ImpactBlackhawks coach Joel Quenneville isn't sure if Carcillo's resumed skating as Carcillo has been rehabbing in Chicago during the Blackhawks' road trip. Carcillo was hurt in Chicago's season opener.
Carcillo 'progressing;' not close to return | 01/30/2013 10:15 PM
NewsDaniel Carcillo is "progressing" in his return from a right knee sprain, according to Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville.
ImpactThe coach won't put a timetable on his return just yet, but it's unlikely he'll return before the Hawks return from their six-game road trip on Feb. 12. The feisty winger was hurt in the season opener Jan. 19. "He's progressing (and) he seems happy with where he's at (but) I don't want to put a timeline on it yet," Quenneville said. "His workouts are getting a little more intense than they were the first . four or five days of probably not doing much at all."
Daniel Carcillo expected to miss one month | 01/20/2013 5:04 PM
NewsIt appears that Daniel Carcillo's issue is a knee injury, which is expected to sideline him for about one month.
ImpactThere are some bright sides, though. It's his right knee, not a recently surgically repaired left one. Also, he isn't expected to go under the knife. Carcillo isn't a big-time contributor, although the possibility of landing with high-end teammates makes him occasional watch list material, if nothing else.
D. Carcillo will miss time with leg injury | 01/19/2013 9:53 PM
NewsDaniel Carcillo is out with what's believed to be a leg injury.
ImpactCarcillo sustained the injury in the third period of Saturday's contest. "Danny is going to miss some time here," coach Joel Quenneville said. "We'll know more exactly about the time frame by (Sunday)." Carcillo was playing in his first game since Jan. 2, 2011. He underwent knee surgery to repair his ACL last year.
Carcillo gets a shot on Blackhawks' top line | 01/18/2013 10:20 AM
NewsDaniel Carcillo has been skating alongside Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa.
Impact"Cars is an energy player," Hossa said. "Basically, he can go hard to the net and get extra room for the chances, so it's going to work out great for us. He gets his feet going and he's really a huge key in our line because he makes room for us." Carcillo figures to get a ton of penalty minutes, but he might also break the 20-point mark if he can stay on a scoring line this season.
Carcillo feels good, but need conditioning | 01/09/2013 11:09 AM
NewsDaniel Carcillo got plenty of extra time to recover form a torn ACL in his right knee due to the lockout.
ImpactCarcillo underwent surgery in January 2012. "Everything feels good," he said. "It's been a long year and I'm definitely excited to get started. Getting back into game shape now is my big concern -- the stops, the starts, coming off the turns and that sort of thing." Carcillo, like all players, will only get a week of training camp with no exhibition games before the season starts. Consequently, he's likely to be one of the many players that's rusty at the start of the season.
