The 6-0, 203-pound native of King City, Ontario has appeared in 333 regular season NHL games during his career, posting 87 points (40-47=87) and 1,079 penalty minutes. Carcillo led the NHL in penalty minutes in 2007-08 (324 PIM) and 2008-09 (254), while ranking fourth in 2009-10 (207). In 37 career playoff games he has 12 points (5-7=12) and 75 penalty minutes.
