• Like most goalies he sucks at dodgeball.

• Hopes to trade one of his two last names for one of Josh Allen’s two first names.

• Never joined the NHL until he was 27 because he was busy playing Willie in Duck Dynasty.

• Carter is short for Cartography.

• Annoyed St. Louis locals by referring to its arch as the “Giant Toenail Clipping.”
