AmericaJR’s Jason Rzucidlo was LIVE at Total Hockey in Novi for a special appearance by former Detroit Red Wing Jimmy Carson. He met his fans and signed autographs on Saturday from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. Jimmy Carson was drafted by the Los Angeles Kings in the 1986 NHL Entry Draft as the 2nd overall pick. He scored 37 goals as an 18-year-old rookie in the 1986–87 NHL season. Jimmy Carson was traded to his home town of Detroit along with Kevin McClelland and a fifth round draft pick for Adam Graves, Petr Klíma and Joe Murphy. He played with Gretzky and the Kings for parts of two seasons, but never regained the scoring touch he had early in his career.
