      Wild's Ryan Carter: Comes down with illness

      Carter is dealing with an illness, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. No information has been revealed concerning Carter's availability for Thursday's game in Boston, but he can be considered day-to-day until more is reported. Of course, when healthy, his offensive upside is limited as a depth forward only averaging 11:23 TOI this season.

      Wild's Ryan Carter: Gets first goal of season

      Carter scored his first goal of the season, a short-handed goal, in Saturday's win over Anaheim. While Carter scored on the penalty kill, he was also a plus-one and had two shots. Head coach Mike Yeo had been contemplating changes on the fourth line after the Wild called up Kurtis Gabriel, but Yeo said the line (with Erik Haula and Chris Porter) performed well Saturday.

    • Could begin season at center

      News: Ryan Carter centered a line with Chris Porter and Jordan Schroeder in Sunday's practice, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. He may be pressed into duty at center for the first few games if Erik Haula (groin) is out.
      Analysis: Ryan Carter played center earlier in his career, so it likely won't be a huge adjustment. Carter sounds healthy after he was banged up late in the preseason.
    • Wild Re-Sign Carter For One Year

      News: Ryan Carter re-signed Wednesday with the Wild on a one-year, $625,000 contract, Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada reports.
      Analysis: Ryan Carter assumed a fourth-line role for the Wild last season, generating 13 points, 77 hits, and 55 PIM across 53 games. With the team parting ways with Matt Cooke earlier this summer, Carter should have an inside track to reclaim a regular spot on the checking line, but it's unlikely to result in a noticeable growth or decline in his production.
    • Wild's Carter Returns Saturday

      News: Ryan Carter (shoulder) will return to the lineup Saturday against the Kings, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
      Analysis: Ryan Carter had sat out the Wild's previous 24 games, though the last two came while he was a healthy scratch. Now far enough removed from the shoulder injury he suffered in early February, Carter will step back into the lineup for Sean Bergenheim on the Wild's fourth line. Carter has three goals and 13 points in 48 games this season.
    • Wild's Carter Out Friday

      News: Ryan Carter (shoulder) won't play Friday against the Flames.
      Analysis: Coach Mike Yeo didn't want to change the lineup he used Tuesday against the Islanders, so Ryan Carter's return will have to wait. The Wild will play the second half of a back-to-back set Saturday versus the Kings, which could provide an opportunity for Carter to substitute in for another player.
    • Wild Activate Carter From IR

      News: Ryan Carter (shoulder) was activated from injured reserve Tuesday.
      Analysis: Ryan Carter was cleared to play a day ago, but he won't suit up for either of the Wild's back-to-back games to kick off the week. The team plans to make him a scratch Tuesday against the Islanders, as coach Mike Yeo appears content to roll with Jordan Schroeder and Sean Bergenheim as his fourth-line wingers. Carter could get back into the lineup Friday versus the Flames.
    • Wild's Carter Nears Return

      News: Ryan Carter (shoulder) has been cleared to return to action, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
      Analysis: That said, the Wild plan to see how Monday's game against the Maple Leafs goes before deciding if Ryan Carter -- who last played on Feb. 9 -- will return to the team's lineup Tuesday against the Islanders.
