Carter was a good hockey player in the small town of Sexsmith, Alberta; everybody knew it and that recognition helped develop his self-confidence. Just ask his former Hot Dog coach Dale Collins or teammate and life long friend Dennis Rix, Grande Prairie Storm assistant coach and business manager. And so the question is: just how did Carter come from the absolute middle of nowhere, make it to the NHL, and earn a Stanley cup ring with Pittsburg Penguins?
