Daniel Carcillo (born January 28, 1985) is a Canadian professional ice hockey left winger for the New York Rangers of the National Hockey League (NHL). His on-ice reputation has led to him being nicknamed Carbomb.[1][2]

Playing career[edit]

Drafted 73rd overall in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft by the Pittsburgh Penguins, Carcillo was traded to the Phoenix Coyotes for Georges Laraque on February 27, 2007. During the 2007–08 regular season he had a league high 324 penalty minutes. He scored his first career hat trick on April 4, 2008. He was traded to the Philadelphia Flyers on March 4, 2009 for Scottie Upshall and a 2011 2nd round draft pick. Carcillo's first goal as a Flyer came in game 4 of the first round of the 2009 Stanley Cup playoffs against Pittsburgh.

Carcillo, along with Shawn Thornton of the Boston Bruins, was a part of the first fight in an outdoor NHL game,[citation needed] in the Bridgestone 2010 NHL Winter Classic. On the NBC broadcast a day earlier, Carcillo told Mike Emrick and Eddie Olczyk that he would be a part of the first Winter Classic fight. On April 18, 2010, Carcillo scored the game-winning goal in overtime against the New Jersey Devils, giving the Flyers a 2 games to 1 lead in the first round of the playoffs. He would also score two nights later in game 4, giving him 2 playoff goals, a new career high. He would finish the playoffs with only the previously mentioned 2 goals and 4 assists, tripling his point total from the previous playoff year, when he had one goal (game 4) and one assist (on Arron Asham's game 6 game-winning goal).

Carcillo signed a one-year contract with the Chicago Blackhawks on July 1, 2011.[3] Carcillo's 2011–12 season came to an early end on January 2, 2012, in a game between the Blackhawks and the Edmonton Oilers.[4] In that game, Carcillo was assessed a 5-minute major penalty and a game misconduct for boarding and attempting to injure Oilers defenceman Tom Gilbert.[5] Both Carcillo and Gilbert were injured on the play, and Carcillo was suspended for 7 games. Carcillo, however, also suffered a torn left ACL, and was announced as out for the season on January 13 once his suspension ended, having surgery 4 days later.[6][7] On March 12, 2012, Carcillo signed a two-year contract extension with the Blackhawks to play through the 2013-14 NHL season.[8]

On June 24, 2013, Carcillo won his first Stanley Cup with the Blackhawks beating the Boston Bruins 3-2.

Carcillo was traded to the Los Angeles Kings on July 16, 2013 for a conditional sixth-round draft pick.[9]

Carcillo was traded to the New York Rangers on January 4, 2014 for a conditional seventh-round draft pick in the 2014 NHL Draft.[10]

On May 23, 2014, Carcillo was automatically suspended 10 games during the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs for using physical force against a linesman while being escorted to the penalty box.[11]

On June 3, 2014, Carcillo's suspension was reduced from 10 games to 6 games by NHL commissioner Gary Bettman.[12]

Radio career[edit]

Carcillo was the host of a music-focused 2011 radio program entitled The Bomb Shelter on WGN Radio 720 in Chicago.[13]
