Carter (personal) was able to play Tuesday night against the Coyotes. He went minus-2 in the 3-2 home loss. Carter's personal matter cut his practice short Monday, but he had 17:11 TOI on Tuesday, which was close to his season average of 18:38. Fret not, as the productive forward is healthy and simply had an off night in his latest contest.
Carter departed Monday's practice after just 25 minutes, but his early exit was not injury related, LA Kings Insider Jon Rosen reports. After a slow start to the season, Carter has put up seven goals and 13 points in his last nine games, bringing his season totals to seven goals and 15 points through 14 games. There is no word on Carter's status for Tuesday's game against Arizona, but it would be a huge loss for the Kings and Carter's fantasy owners if he is to miss out on the contest.
Carter extended his goal streak to three games with seventh of the season in Saturday's win over the Panthers. He also added an assist and has 15 points in 14 games. He's been white hot in his last nine, recording all seven of his goals and six of his seven assists. Carter's best season came back in 2008-09 with Philly (46 goals, 38 assists), but he's on pace to eclipse that this year.
Carter tallied two assists in Tuesday's 4-1 win against the Jets. Carter and Tyler Toffoli have been able to find their game playing alongside newcomer Milan Lucic and the Kings have taken off. The veteran center now has nine points in nine games this season, seven of those points coming over Los Angeles' current five-game winning streak. Carter is always a player you should ride while he's hot in DFS contests.
Jeff Carter didn't take part in Thursday's practice, but the veteran forward was reportedly just taking a maintenance day, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
