Playing career

Carle was drafted 47th overall in the 2nd round of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, by the San Jose Sharks. An all-American star player at the University of Denver, Carle won the Hobey Baker Award in 2006 emblematic of America's top college hockey player as the only junior defenseman in history to win the award.

In order to get Carle to forfeit his senior year at University of Denver, as well as acknowledge Carle's numerous successes, the San Jose Sharks signed Carle to a three-year-deal worth approximately $4.1 million, the maximum an entry-level contract can be worth according to the NHL CBA. The contract, which is a two-way deal, includes US$942,000 in annual salary as well as a US $1.25 million signing bonus.

During his first full season with the Sharks in 2006–07, Carle scored 11 goals and 31 assists in 77 games and was named to the NHL All-Rookie Team. In November, 2007, Carle signed a four year contract extension with San Jose worth $13.75 million.

On July 4, 2008, Carle was traded, along with Ty Wishart and a first in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft and a fourth round pick in 2010, to the Tampa Bay Lightning for Dan Boyle and Brad Lukowich.

On November 7, 2008, only 12 games into Tampa Bay's season, Carle was traded to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for Steve Eminger and Steve Downie.
