Born in Bracebridge, Ontario, Carson was from quite the hockey family. Like his brothers Bill and Gerry, "Frosty" was a heck of an amateur player. This sturdy winger was a "lion-hearted" hockey sensation in Stratford, playing junior with the Midgets and senior with the Indians.
Carson retired from hockey in 1934 and worked for Industrial Acceptance Corporation in the Chatham/Windsor region. In 1950 he settled in Crumlin, Ontario (near London) where he operated a grocery/hardware store. He died of a heart attack in 1957, just 55 years old.
In 2004 the Bobby Orr Hall of Fame in Parry Sound inducted this local legend, saying he was "a determined competitor and a consummate team player. He was a smooth and graceful skater and possessed great puck handling skills. He never took or invited too many penalties. He was somewhat of a philosopher and looked upon hockey as a lot of fun and a good trade. He was always held in very high regard for his integrity and perseverance from all those who had contact with him."
