Alex Carpenter of Boston College Takes After ‘Can’t Miss’ Bruins-Alum Father (Video)


Bobby Carpenter may not have quite lived up to the potential that landed him on the cover of Sports Illustrated in 1981, but he did put together a serviceable 21-year career that included four seasons with the Boston Bruins.

He also raised his daughter, Alex Carpenter, to be one heck of a hockey player, herself. Ranked as one of the top women’s hockey players in the country, the younger Carpenter currently toils for Boston College, once again leading the team in scoring. Unsurprisingly, she’s absolutely learned a thing or two about the game from her dad — though there are the occasional disagreements.

Check out a NESN Daily feature on the Carpenter family in the video above.
