Hockey Card Trivia
Coffee Talk Name that player!
A regular with Vasteras Frolunda of the Swedish National League for three seasons, Carnback also played 45 games with the Fredericton Canadiens last year, registering 20 goals and 37 assists.
"Le Gros Bill" as Jean is called by his French Canadian fans is perhaps one of the most "natural" hockey players to come along in years. As a Junior, he was widely sought after and in a three-game NHL trial in the 1952-53 season, scored 5 goals in three games.
In two seasons Bill proved that he is headed for stardom in the NHL. He just missed Rookie-of-the-Year honors, finishing second in 1972-73. Bill has what the scouts call "hockey sense". The puck often seems to follow him around. He's a good skater and a very accurate shot. Nine of his goals last year came while the Flyers had a man advantage.
