Mississauga Steelheads give ‘C’ to Orléans native

Cole Carter’s rise through the Ontario Hockey League ranks has reached a new level with the recent announcement that he would be wearing the “C” for the Mississauga Steelheads this season.

Carter joined the Steelheads last season in a trade deadline deal with the Kitchener Rangers. He was immediately put on the team’s top line with Michael McLeod and Albert Michnac. He ended up scoring 15 goals and eight assists in 28 regular season games, along with five points in six playoff games.

With the departure of several of last year’s team leaders to the professional ranks, Carter seemed an obvious pick to assume the captaincy, still he was extremely grateful for the distinction.

“We’ve got a lot of good leaders here and to be named captain is extremely flattering,” the fourth-year player told the Missisauga Times. “It’s such an amazing league and to be named leader of a team, I’m speechless.”

Steelheads coach and general manager, James Richmond, says Carter was given the “C” in recognition of his tremendous leadership skills. “He does it the right way on the ice and off the ice,” Richmond told the News. “He works tremendously hard during the game and in practice, he always wants to get better. That’s what we want our young guys to see.”

Carter’s development as a hockey player began in the Cumberland Minor Hockey Association. In 2010-2011, he led the Cumberland Jr. Grads Major Peewee team in goals (21) and points (37). The following year, he played on the Eastern Ontario Cobras AAA Minor Bantam squad where he scored 15 goals and 12 assists in 27 games.

In 2013-2014 he joined the Ottawa Jr. 67s midget team and registered an impres-sive 51 points in just 30 games, including 16 goals.

Carter’s minor league hockey career suffered a minor setback in 2014-2015 when he was unable to crack the Gloucester Rangers Jr. A starting roster.

Instead, he was a major force on the Stittsville Rams in the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League where he racked up 27 goals and 36 assists in 36 games.

Despite playing in the EOJHL, Carter’s play caught the attention of several OHL teams including the Windsor Spitfires who picked him in the 4th round (72nd overall) of the OHL Priority Selection draft.

In his rookie season with the Spitfires, Carter scored just six goals to go along with 28 assists in 68 games. Midway through the 2016-17 season, the Spitfires traded Carter to the Rangers where he would be named as one of the team’s assistant captains.

In his first three seasons in the OHL, Carter has scored 44 goals and 67 assists in 192 games. So far this season, he’s managed to score four goals and three assists in the Steelheads first five games.
