Alfred Carr was known as "Red" throughout his playing career which spanned seventeen seasons. Carr, a tough, physical left winger spent eight seasons playing Senior hockey before he made his way to the National Hockey League in 1943.
"Red" joined the Toronto Maple Leafs that year for a five game trial and registered one assist and one minor penalty in that time. Though that would prove to be his only time in the National Hockey League, Carr still had a lot of hockey left in him.
Carr landed in the Pacific Coast Hockey League in 1945 and posted numbers that dwarfed his previous career-best when he scored 43 goals and 92 points. He continued to show a deft scoring touch in the playoffs that spring for the Portland Eagles when he added seven more goals and a league-leading 10 points in 8 playoff matches. After three years in the PCHL, he moved on to the International Hockey League. That season, the 1948-49 campaign, which was spent with the Milwaukee Clarks was Carr's last as a professional. He elected to return to Senior hockey to finish his career and spent his final three campaigns with the Nanaimo Clippers, an Ontario Senior club.
