Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
By the time the Devils got Carpenter, he was established as a checking line center and served the Devils well when he
played for them. This coming after entering training camp in 1993 on a tryout basis.

However, back in the day, he was a scoring machine, best known for his 53 goal season with the Caps in 84-85. He
joined the Caps immediately after he was drafted... right out of high school. That was unheard of at the time.

He stayed with the Devils after retirement, being part of the River Rats' coaching staff for a few years before joining the
Devils coaching staff for the 02-03 Cup run.

It all garnered an induction into the US Hockey Hall of Fame for him in 2007.

He was the Director of Program Development for the EJHL's Valley Jr. Warriors at one time. He had also worked
as a player development coach for the Toronto Maple Leafs for a few years.
Entry Draft: 1981 First Round Pick (3rd overall) by the
Washington Capitals
