Player Biography and Trivia

Drafted 1974, 7 #103 overall by Minnesota Fighting Saints in the WHA Amateur Draft

- Carlson missed the whole 1979/80 season due to a back injury.

Jack missed his big acting break in 1974-75. While playing for Johnstown, the movie Slap Shot was being made. Jack's two brothers, Jeff and Steve, were stars of the flick, and Jack was supposed to be the third brother, all of whom were terrorizing the league with their hits and fights. But when he was recalled by the Minnesota Fighting Saints just prior to filming, his part had to be given to Dave Hanson. (External Link)
