Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Ed Carpenter
Although born on American soil, Carpenter led a life that was Canadian through and through, beginning with a childhood in Lachute, Quebec. He played senior hockey at 17 in the Ottawa valley and turned pro with Moncton of the Maritime League.

In 1916-17 he played for Seattle as the Mets won the Stanley Cup, and after two years in the military during the First World War saw his only NHL action, with Quebec and then Hamilton. He was later traded to Toronto but never played with the St. Pats.

Carpenter retired in 1921 and moved to Port Arthur where he began a successful coaching career, leading the senior team of that city to Allan Cup victory in both 1925 and 1926 and being elected Alderman of Port Arthur in 1941. He moved to Winnipeg two years later and became a railroad engineer, a job he held until retiring in 1953. He died a decade later of cancer of the liver.
