Matt Carkner has put in the time and paid his dues. The past summer of 2009 brought an offer for Carkner to play in Russia. After talking it over with his family, Carkner declines the offer in exchange for one last kick at the NHL can. The cards were dealt and lo and behold at the ripe age of 28 Matt Carkner makes the Ottawa Senators. It gets better. During Carkner's first home game in Ottawa the defenceman scores the opening goal. Top it off he was rewarded for his excellent play with the games 1st star. Sound too good? Well it's not, get used to it. Carkner has earned the respect to play for the Senators.

Carkner hails from the Ottawa region (Winchester) and was originally drafted by the Montreal Canadiens but played for various farm teams with very few callups.
