James 'Jim' Carey (born May 31, 1974 in Dorchester, Massachusetts), is a retired American ice hockey goaltender.

He was the highest drafted goalie in the 1992 NHL Entry Draft. He was taken in the 2nd round, 32nd overall by the Washington Capitals. Carey spent portions of his 5-year NHL career with the Capitals, Boston Bruins, and St. Louis Blues. He also spent time with the WCHA's University of Wisconsin-Madison Badgers, the AHL's Portland Pirates and Providence Bruins, and the IHL's Cincinnati Cyclones.

Playing careerEdit

Carey had a very short NHL career, but he skyrocketed to stardom with his brilliant play. He won the 1996 Vezina Trophy, which had previously been considered a lock for the dominant Dominik Hašek. As quickly as Carey gained his star status, though, it seemed to disappear, as he was traded in a blockbuster deal to the Boston Bruins in the 1996–97 season though he was never able to match his brilliant play as a Capital. His confidence on the decline, he played two seasons with the Bruins, then signed on with the St. Louis Blues, only to play in four games without any significant accomplishments. He played two games with the IHL Cincinnati Cyclones where he suffered an inner ear concussion and missed the remainder of the postseason. He never returned to professional hockey.

Before playing in the NHL, Carey won the Dudley "Red" Garrett Memorial Award as the top rookie in the American Hockey League, while playing for the Portland Pirates.

Because of Carey's name's similarity to that of actor Jim Carrey, his nicknames were the Net Detective, Ace and The Mask.
