Chris Terry, LW

Shoots: L

Height: 5-10

Weight: 194

Born: 1989-04-07

Hometown: Brampton, Ont

Drafted: 2007 by Carolina, 132nd overall









October 2013- Chris Terry has had a successful start to the season. Terry leads The Charlotte Checkers with five goals and eight points in seven games. Terry has had a couple successful AHL seasons but has yet to get a real chance in the NHL. Terry still struggles on the defensive side of the puck and this could be a contributing factor to his lack of NHL appearances. Although he did see three games at the end of last season, the Hurricanes already struggle defensively with the forwards they have. Andrew Ward


June 2013 – Once again, Terry showed his value by leading the Canes’ affiliate in scoring which was expected, but this year with a positive -1 rating, most of which can be attributed to the quality of goaltending Charlotte received, but also the overall growth of Carolina prospects as a group. He was recalled late in the season for a three game audition and scored in his debut. It would not be surprising if he finds a place with the big club early next season. Jason Banks



July 2012 – Terry has recently signed a second contract with the Canes, it is a two year, two way pact. Chris will start in the AHL but should get a call up at some point through season. Chris needs to improve his numbers from last season. Despite being a top scorer for Charlotte, his minus 15 also led the team (it was actually a four way tie for worst). Jason Banks



December, 2011 – A fixture in DobberHockey’s prospect and mid-season guides since being a fifth round selection in 2007, 5’10 winger Chris Terry seen plenty of other teammates promoted- and plenty of forwards acquired for bottom-six duty- without himself earning a chance at NHL ice-time. Once again among the leading scorers for the Baby Canes, that waiver claim Andreas Nodl was deemed a better option for action than Terry indicates his time as a prospect in the Carolina organization may be winding up.


Fantasy Outlook: B-

Some upside, but likely targeted for the third line.

Fantasy Prospects Report Notes (Any FPR's released in the last 18 months will not be listed)

From the 2009 DobberHockey Fantasy Prospects Report:

The 2007 132nd overall draft pick is really looking like a steal now, as Terry actually made his 101-points season of a year ago look like child’s play. He had 40 points in his last 17 OHL contests for Plymouth. Just two years ago, Carolina didn’t have any offensive prospects in the pipeline, but with Bowman, Boychuk and Terry they have a promising threesome (not to mention Dalpe). Don’t be surprised if in two seasons, these three make up an actual NHL line. Terry is also responsible in his own zone and if he can translate his success to the AHL level next season we could see him in a Carolina uniform in 2010-11. His winning OHL’s Captain of the Year only helps his odds of getting to the NHL.
Upside: Top-six forward, (35-40-75, 120 PIM)
Certainty (NHLer; Upside): 80%, 35% on the pts, 50% on the PIMs



From the 2008 Fantasy Prospects Report:

Detroit has Europe. Anaheim as the NCAA. Carolina has... the Plymouth Whalers? It's no coincidence Plymouth's OHL team sports the name of the team that ultimately becomes the Canes. Owned by the Karmanos family, the Whalers have been a source of no fewer than eight draft picks over the past thirteen years, with two coming in 2007 alone. This might explain how the squad was able to find Chris Terry. A 5'10 winger who scored a shade under a PPG in both the regular season and playoffs in 2006-07, teams avoided the feisty winger as most projected him to be no more than an undersized agitator at the NHL level. So much for projections. Terry set career-highs in every category en route to a 44-goal, 101-point season during the 2007-08 season, and added seven in four playoff games. But the biggest change came in the OHL Coach's Poll. Terry came in the top three in Smartest Player, Hardest Shot and Best Playmaker, among others. Look for him in two years – the ‘Canes need depth up front.

Upside: Top-six forward, (30-40-70+, 130+ PIM)

Certainty (NHLer; Upside): 65%, 30% on the pts, 50% on the PIMs
