As a 16-year-old, Carriere produced at nearly a point a game pace scoring 18 goals and 14 assists totaling 32 points in 34 games.
“We are certainly excited to welcome Tye to the Eagles organization,” said Eagles Assistant Coach Evan McFeeters. “Tye is a player that has created offense at every level he has played. He has great vision with the puck, and when combining his high-end puck skills with how well Tye skates it makes for a very dangerous player. When bringing players into the Eagles organization we want players that possess character, who are intelligent and have above average skating and puck skills. Tye checks those boxes and will develop into a very good junior A player in an Eagles sweater.”
Carriere will make his first appearance in an Eagles sweater when Training Camp opens on August 28th.
