12: Adam Carlson

The story of Edina’s Adam Carlson’s is one about tremendous perseverance. The goalie was cut from his high school hockey team two different times, but that didn’t slow him down.

He played on the Edina Junior Gold “A” team during his senior year in high school, then off to junior “A” before earning a D-1 opportunity at Mercyhurst University. Then, after just one season in college, he signed a pro contract with the Washington Capitols organization.
