Bobby And Alex Carpenter: Building A Hockey Legacy

Bobby Carpenter had quite the year in 1985. In March "The Can't Miss Kid" became the first American born player to score 50 goals in the National Hockey League.

Then in November, he decided to fight Mario Lemieux. Bad move, Bobby.


The Sports Illustrated hero enjoyed a NHL career that lasted 1200 games and highlighted by a Stanley Cup win in 1995.  In retirement, Carpenter has had a lot of fun helping his kids learn the game.

His son Bob is doing well at a Boston area prep school.

His daughter Alex is quite the hockey star at Boston College. She may be the top up-and-coming player in the USA women's hockey scene.
