Linked: Older Brothers, Matthew, David Inspire Alex Carle (Pucks & Rec)

Alex Carle vs. Union 11/28/15

Merrimack defenseman Alex Carle, a rising junior, was featured on in a story about his family, in particular how his two older brothers have inspired him throughout his hockey career.

Carle’s brother, Matt, is a former Denver defenseman who won the 2006 Hobey Baker Award. David Carle was about to follow in Matt’s steps at Denver, but a heart condition ended his playing career before he could take the ice for the Pioneers. He still attended Denver, and was a volunteer student assistant for four seasons. Now, he’s a full-time assistant for the Pioneers and was just part of Denver’s 2017 national championship-winning team.
