Career Highlights:

It's little surprise that Carpenter wound up a hockey Olympian given her genes. She is the daughter of NHL veteran Bobby Carpenter, who played for five teams between 1981 and '99. The elder Carpenter was the first American-born player to be drafted in the league's first round, as well as the first U.S.-born player to score 50 goals in a season when he recorded 53 for the Washington Capitals in 1984-85. Later in his career, he won a Stanley Cup with the New Jersey Devils in 1995. Alex has a way to go to match those credentials, but, at just 19 years old, she is already making a name for herself. The forward will be making her Olympic debut after recording a goal and two assists in five games while helping Team USA win gold at the 2013 world championships. Carpenter has played two seasons of collegiate hockey at Boston College. As a sophomore, she scored 25 goals and added 23 assists in 21 games to set the Hockey East conference scoring record en route to winning conference player of the year honors.
