Joe Carveth
Joe Carveth
Right Wing
Number: 17
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 180
Shoots: Right
Born: Mar 21, 1918
Birthplace: Regina, SK, Canada
Acquired: 1. Signed as a free agent by Detroit on October 5, 1939; 2. Traded to Detroit by Montreal for Calum MacKay on November 11, 1949.
Carveth came up through the junior ranks but no sooner had he made the team in 1940-41 than he broke his leg, and missed the rest of the season. The next year was one of recovery, and the year after his career was back on track as he scored 18 goals and was a key element in Detroit's winning the 1943 Stanley Cup.

He registered consecutive 20-goal seasons after that win, but this made him a popular commodity in the league and Jack Adams trraded him to Boston for Roy Conacher in August 1946. Strangely, another 20-goal year only resulted in another trade, this time to the Canadiens for Jimmy Peters and John Quilty.

Midway through 1949-50, he was sent back to the Red Wings, and his value increased early in the playoffs when Gordie Howe was lost with a serious injury. Carveth helped fill the breach and the Wings won their first Cup since he was last victorious in 1943, perhaps merely a coincidence, but he might disagree.

Carveth was demoted the following year, and although crushed he soldiered on in the minors before retiring in 1954.
