Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Billy Carter
A little-known entity in NHL circles but well respected elsewhere, particularly as a scorer, Carter played for the better part of two decades before retiring in 1969.

He began in the Montreal organization and then moved on to the Ottawa-Hull Canaines, winning a Memorial Cup in 1958 and earning a one-game callup to the Habs at the Forum. However, the Canadiens weren't impressed with his development and sold him to Boston in 1960, despite his scoring 42 goals and 102 points with Ottawa-Hull in 1959-60.

A year later the Habs re-acquired him in a straight cash transaction after eight games with Boston. Again, though, he couldn't establish himself with Montreal and he was back with the minor pro Canadiens. Over the next seven years, Carter continued o play, though his NHL days were clearly behind him. He was never claimed after the 1967 expansion and retired in 1969.
