3. Anson Carter (Barbados)
Teams Played For: Almost all of them

The most visibly “Caribbean” player in NHL history, Carter’s long dreadlocks were instantly-recognizable amid the sea of mullets on ice. He’s best known for scoring the winning goal for Canada in the 2003 World Championships, but his 12-year career took him throughout the NHL, suiting up for the Boston Bruins, Washington Capitals, Edmonton Oilers, New York Rangers, Los Angeles Kings, Carolina Hurricanes, Vancouver Canucks, Columbus Blue Jackets. Carter later moved to Altanta and started a rap label, Big Up Entertainment.
