Mike Carter retired as a St. Paul police officer after 30 years in 2010. Mike loved watching Ryan play hockey. But Ryan didn't get the hockey bug from dad. He got it from friends with whom he grew up and the White Bear Lake Hockey Association. Mike Carter was a linebacker at St. Agnes, coached Ryan as a kid and hoped his son, a quarterback, would follow in his footsteps. But Ryan Carter's heart was in hockey. In his sophomore year, Ryan's football coach pressured him to pick one sport or the other. "He said, 'I don't want you skating during football season.' He said, 'Stop, or you won't be playing football.' So I said, 'Then, I won't be playing football," Listen as Ryan tells us about getting bullied, dealing with injuries and playing in the Stanley Cup Finals.
