Ryan Carpenter grew up in Orlando, Florida where he attended Timber Creek High School. In his youth hockey playing career he played for the Central Florida Hockey Club. He started his junior career with the Sioux City Musketeers in the USHL. He played two seasons with Sioux City before moving on to Bowling Green State University. Carpenter won BGSU Rookie of the Year, and was only one of four Falcons to play all 44 games during his rookie campaign.
On March 26, 2014, he signed with the San Jose Sharks as an undrafted free agent, and joined their minor league club, the Worcester Sharks. In his first full professional season in 2014–15, he scored 12 goals, 22 assists and had 34 points.
During his second season with the-now San Jose Barracuda in 2015–16, Carpenter led the Barracuda in points and assists through 20 AHL games, and was called up by the San Jose Sharks on December 11, 2015. He made his NHL debut on the Sharks fourth line, in a 2-0 defeat to the Minnesota Wild the following day. With the Barracuda, Carpenter finished the season leading the team on points, and also won the Yanick Dupre Memorial Award for community service. Helped by the AHL team falling in the first round of the 2016 playoffs, Carpenter remained on the Sharks roster as a possible back-up, seeing the franchise reach the 2016 Stanley Cup Finals.
The Sharks signed Carpenter to a two-year, $1.3 million contract extension on June 17, 2017. After appearing in 16 games with the Sharks during the 2017–18 season, Carpenter was placed on waivers on December 12. Carpenter was claimed the next day by the Vegas Golden Knights.
After playing for the Golden Knights in the franchise's first two seasons, Carpenter left as a free agent to sign a three-year, $3 million contract with the Chicago Blackhawks on July 1, 2019. He would score his first goal as a Blackhawk in a 4–3 win over the Boston Bruins.
