Carter (hand) will return to Minnesota's lineup Tuesday against the Islanders, NHL.com's David Satriano reports. Carter has missed the Wild's last seven games with a hand injury, but was apparently able to fully recover from the ailment during the recent NHL All-Star break. The 32-year-old winger will likely slot into a bottom-six role Tuesday against New York.
Coach Mike Yeo indicated Tuesday that Carter (hand) will likely sit out through the All-Star break, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports. Carter was placed on the injured reserve Monday as well, with Tyson Strachan taking over his spot on the roster. Given Yeo's statements Tuesday, Carter won't be expected back on the ice until Feb. 2 against the Islanders at the earliest.
Carter (hand) has been placed on injured reserve, Michael Russo of the Star-Tribune reports. Carter is having trouble with a nagging hand injury that he aggravated in a tussle Jan. 10 against New Jersey. Taking his roster spot is Tyson Strachan, a 31-year-old who has bounced between the organizational ranks for most of his career.
Coach Mike Yeo indicated Thursday that Carter (hand) will be held out through the weekend. Carter injured his hand twice, the second time during a fight in the game Jan. 10 against the Devils. It appears the issue is serious enough to hold him out through the weekend, making his next chance to return next Wednesday against the Ducks.
Carter (hand) won't play Tuesday against the Sabres. Carter missed Minnesota's matchup with the Blue Jackets on Jan. 5 with a hand injury, but reportedly suffered a different hand ailment during his fight in Sunday's game against New Jersey. The 32-year-old winger's latest hand issue will force him to miss Tuesday's tilt against the Sabres, and could hold him out of Friday's matchup with Winnipeg as well. Expect an update on Carter's status ahead of Friday's contest.
