Jack Carlson

  1. David Hanson, Slap Shot, 1976. However, Jack was called up by the Edmonton Oilers shortly before shooting started.  He was substituted by one of the Johnstown Jets, David Hanson, originally booked for Dave “Killer” Carlson. (Muddling these names). Universal offered the three Carlsons their own spin-off movie. No, they preferred hockey. Then again…25 years later (!), Jeff and Steve foolishly made Slap Shot 2: Breaking the Ice (ho! ho!). in 2001,  breaking the mould of any possible franchise, despite one more try… Slap Shot 3: The Junior League. 2008.   Very junior. Both trickled out on video.
