Hockey Superstar 2009-10: Jeff Carter

Current Team: Philadelphia Flyers
First NHL Team: Philadelphia Flyers
Position: Center
Birthdate: Jan. 1, 1985
Birthplace: London, Ontario


One person who can say a lot about the power of positive thinking is Jeff Carter. He always believed he’d be a big scorer in the NHL. All he needed was a chance to play in hockey’s big league.


He got that chance in 2005, when he was drafted to the Philadelphia Flyers. Ever since then his shot has been considered his deadliest weapon – it’s as hard as they come in hockey. He’s also got a very quick release, making it harder for a goalie to judge where the puck is going.

Today Jeff ranks as one of the top goal-scorers in the NHL - just like he always knew he’d be.


Hockey Highlights

Jeff had hockey on the head long before he played in the NHL. He was part of two gold medals with Canada at the World Junior Championships.


Olympic No-Show

When Team Canada coach Steve Yzerman was building his team to represent Canada in the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, Jeff was left off the roster. Steve was looking for tough players, and Jeff is known more for his finesse than his muscle. Though fans everywhere were shocked, it's really hard to pick a team of 20 players out of a whole league full of hundreds of great hockey players.
