The Junior Warriors own Bob Carpenter will take his place alongside hockey’s greatest talents next month when he is inducted into the United States Hockey Hall of Fame. Carpenter, who has served as the Junior Warriors program development director since 2006, enjoyed a celebrated professional playing and coaching career. A St. John’s Preparatory School standout from Peabody, Carpenter was the first U.S. Citizen to be drafted into the NHL directly out of high school. As an NHL rookie, Carpenter scored 32 goals and then set a record for American-born players when he scored 53 in his fourth year.

Carpenter, along with former NHL players John Vanbiesbrouck and Aaron Broten and college coach John MacInnes, will be formally inducted on October 12 at the Betty Engelstad Sioux Center in Grand Forks, North Dakota.
"The members of the Class of 2007 represent the highest standard of excellence and accomplishment," USA Hockey president Ron DeGregorio said. "It is my great pleasure to congratulate and welcome them into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame."

Carptenter’s storied professional playing career includes stints with the Washington Capitals, New York Rangers, Los Angeles Kings, New Jersey Devils and the Boston Bruins. In his NHL career that spanned 18 years, Carpenter played 1,318 games, scoring 341 goals and 446 assists for 787 points. He also captured three Stanley Cups (1995, ’00, ’03) while playing for New Jersey.

Following his playing career, Carpenter served as assistant coach of the New Jersey Devils and head coach of the AHL Albany River Rats. After a successful professional coaching career, Carpenter made the decision to return home to Massachusetts where he was raised.

Soon thereafter, he became a part of the Junior Warriors staff where he works directly with head coach Andy Heinze to help develop some of the best junior hockey players in the country.
