It's the same feeling that we have in this room, that we can always come back, we can always win a game as long as we have time on the clock. I don't really want to go back four years and compare.

Daniel Carcillo happy with appeals process | 06/03/2014 7:00 PM
NewsDaniel Carcillo praised NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and the league for their handling of his suspension appeals process.
ImpactCarcillo got his 10-game suspension reduced to six games, which means he's eligible to return form Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final. He's being punished for physically abusing an official. The league justified reducing his suspension because they felt his actions fell into a less severe category than it was initially listed in. Unlike many other league rules, the suspensions for abusing an official come with mandatory minimums and changing which category his offense fell under brought the suspension from a mandatory minimum of 10 games to three contests. "I'm just really encouraged, and like I said, hopefully they don't need me, but it's nice to be able to be around the guys again," Carcillo said of his suspension being reduced.
Daniel Carcillo's suspension cut to six games | 06/03/2014 12:21 PM
NewsDaniel Carcillo's 10-game suspension has been reduced to six games following an appeal.
ImpactCarcillo got an automatic suspension as a result of his abusing an official. The NHL's justification for lessening his punishment was that they ultimately felt he actually violated Rule 40.4 rather than 40.3 with the difference being that Rule 40.4 carries a minimum punishment of only three games. Rule 40.4 punishes players for using force against an official solely for the purposes of breaking free of them. Carcillo is now eligible to play in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final.

Vigneault questions Scott Driscoll's actions | 05/25/2014 9:53 AM
NewsRangers coach Alain Vigneault questioned linesman Scott Driscoll's role in Daniel Carcillo's 10-game suspension.
The Bergen Record
ImpactCarcillo earned the automatic suspension for using physical force against an official. He is exercising his right to appeal the suspension. "I still don't understand why Scott grabbed him in that fashion," Vigneault said. "All Scott had to do was tell him he had a penalty. Obviously, it's inexcusable what Dan did but those situations, put one after the other, leads to a gentleman's career [that], moving forward, might be very tough here." It's always nice to see someone offer up an excuse, followed by the line, "obviously, it's inexcusable." There can't be circumstances where it's okay for a player to use physical force against an official. If there are, then it becomes impossible for the officials to do their job.

ImpactRangers coach Alain Vigneault suggested that Carcillo getting suspended was a matter of "common sense." Carcillo might end up with a 10 or 20-game suspension depending on whether or not it's felt Carcillo's actions "could reasonably be expected to cause injury." There's also a lesser, automatic three-game suspension when physical force is used for the sole purpose of trying to break free from an official.

Pro Hockey Talk
ImpactSuch an act comes with serious automatic suspensions. The difference between a 10 and 20-game suspension would be Carcillo's intent. If it's determined that he "applied physical force" against an official without an intent to injure, then he would be handed a suspension of at least 10 games. If his actions "could reasonably be expected to cause injury," then he'll get a suspension of at least 20 games. However, there is a lesser three-game automatic suspension for using force for the sole purpose of trying to break free of an official, so there's a chance he might end up with that punishment instead.

"I don't know if he changed or it was overblown, but when he came in, he was real quiet, very professional," Richards said of Carcillo. "He's in the gym every day, takes care of body, practices hard, works hard. So from what I heard - and that was a long time ago - he was a lot different. Professionalism and all that."

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 '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.

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

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. "

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.

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.

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.
