Anton Carlyle was drafted originally by , according to the 2014 SHL Draft, but Team X wished to acquire a center as they noticed Team Daiku needed a goalie due to Gemel and Jeremy's retirement. Igius Gonzalez was later given to X for Carlyle, and Carlyle became the head goaltender for Team Daiku, alongside Wes Pickard, who Daiku acquired from the lower leagues. He was friends with Michael Torio in the lower leagues, and like Torio, he states that versing his former ally in the SHL will be interesting.
