Daniel Carcillo has decided to end his playing career.
Carcillo had 48 goals, 100 points, and 1,233 penalty minutes in 429 career games with the Chicago Blackhawks, Philadelphia Flyers, Phoenix Coyotes, Los Angeles Kings, and New York Rangers. Along the way he won the Stanley Cup with Chicago in 2013 and 2015. Carcillo is dedicating himself to his charity, Chapter 5, which is focused on helping athletes transition to life after their playing careers are over. As Carcillo put it, "My mission is to help guys who are dealing with anxiety, depression, and uncertainty about their future. Not down the line, not next week, but right now." The charity is named after Steve Montador, who wore number five and passed away in September. Sep 17 - 12:12 PM

Agitating forward Daniel Carcillo admits that he isn't sure if he'll play in the NHL again as a 30-year-old UFA.

"If I told you that I've already made a decision 100 percent to not play I'd be lying," Carcillo said to the Chicago Tribune. "But every year, especially the last couple, I've definitely thought about it. And then when you have a son it kind of changes things because being away that long with that travel schedule is just not conducive to being the father I want to be. I want to be here and I want to see things."

Dan Carcillo venerated his friend and late teammate Steve Montador after the Blackhawks captured the Stanley Cup on Monday night.

"Obviously the memory of Steve, and his spirit is still with me," Carcillo said. "I'm a big believer in signs and everything happens for a reason, and whatever reason he passed hopefully it's because of the foundation and because of how we're going to help a lot of guys and a lot of people in the future." Carcillo has been perhaps the most outspoken about the difficulties players face once they leave the game. "And that's the goal, and his death won't be for naught and hopefully make a lot of other guys' lives a little easier and less stressful and they won't have to worry about the same things that guys moving on have to worry about today." The 30 year old Carcillo will become an UFA on July 1st.

If the Hawks are going to win the Stanley Cup in front of the home crowd Monday night, Dan Carcillo, Joakim Nordstrom, Ville Pokka, Phillip Danault, Ryan Hartman, and Viktor Svedberg will all be watching from the press box.

Daniel Carcillo and Joakim Nordstrom will be healthy scratches in Sunday's game against Minnesota.

Apr 21 - 1:34 PM

Daniel Carcillo (upper body) didn't take part in Chicago's practice on Tuesday.

Dan Carcillo will be back in the Blackhawks lineup Wednesday night versus the Flyers.

Wednesday will be Carcillo's first game since March 8th versus the New York Rangers.

He will replace Bryan Bickell as the Blackhawks look to add some toughness as they take on the Flyers.
Mar 25 - 7:52 PM

Daniel Carcillo, Joakim Nordstrom, and David Rundblad will each be scratched against the NY Islanders on Tuesday night.

Mar 17 - 8:00 PM

Mar 8 - 6:24 PM

Daniel Carcillo will be a healthy scratch Monday night when the Blackhawks host the Hurricanes.

The fourth line veteran will sit out for a fourth consecutive game Monday night against Carolina. He has four goals and eight points in 37 games this season, but what usually drives his fantasy value is his ability to rack up penalty minutes, however, he’s only recorded 49 of them this season. With that being said, he no longer carries any fantasy value.
Mar 2 - 8:12 PM

Dan Carcillo and Michal Rozsival will be scratched again versus the Tampa Bay Lightning on Friday night.

Meanwhile this is Rozy's second straight game in the stands, and has just eight points and 81 hits through 49 games this season.
