Carpenter scored his first career NHL goal in a 4-1 win over the Kings on Wednesday.

Carpenter capped off a three-goal first period for the Sharks with just 25 seconds remaining in the frame. He flashed some serious upside last season in the AHL with 18 goals, 55 points and a fantastic plus-20 rating in 66 contests, so he's definitely worth keeping an eye on as he gets his feet wet in the NHL.
