Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Ron Carter
With Sherbrooke, Carter scored 88 goals and 174 points in his final year, both league bests. This came on the heels of a 77-goal season. Montreal had drafted him into the NHL, but the Edmonton Oilers, then of the WHA, signed him to a contract and then obtained his NHL rights when the team joined the NHL in 1979.

Carter played just two meaningless games with Edmonton, but everywhere else he went he scored buckets. In the next six years he played in a variety of leagues, registering consecutive 50-goal seasons with Virginia in the ACHL.

In a total of 442 minor pro games, Carter scored an astounding 331 goals, but his two NHL games are followed by nothing but zeroes.
