Carter lit the lamp 13 times and pitched in nine assists during the 27 games he played during 2017-18, while also firing off 96 shots. Despite dealing with an ankle injury that kept him sidelined for four months, Carter didn't miss a beat when he returned, going on a tear that saw him score six goals in nine games, and even had a hat trick March 29 against Arizona. The sniper still isn't showing any signs of slowing down and he would've been on pace for a fourth straight 60-point season barring the injury, though he did have the benefit of a 15.3 shooting percentage. Nine of Carter's points also came on the man advantage as he remained lethal on the power play, and he'll return to Los Angeles in 2018-19 and likely reprise his role on the top six and first line of the man advantage.
Carter had a hat trick and fired five shots on goal in Thursday's win over the Coyotes. Carter has now scored in three straight games to help the Kings stay in playoff contention. The sniper is up to 20 points in 23 games on the season and remains an elite fantasy option. Carter has scored six of his 13 goals with the man advantage and is an automatic roll whenever the Kings are in action.
Carter scored his ninth goal of the season and had an assist in Saturday's loss to the Oilers. Carter has now scored five times in his last seven games and has been solid since returning from an ankle injury. The second-line center is playing on the first power-play unit and has compiled 62 shots on goal in just 21 contests. Given the Kings' desperation for points in the playoff race and Carter's goal-scoring ability, the veteran sniper should be in your lineup whenever he's in action.
Carter scored a power-play goal in regulation and bagged the winner in overtime in a 4-3 win over Minnesota on Monday. Carter's now up to eight goals in just 18 games with five assists to go with them. Clearly, he's showing no rust after the ankle injury, and without the toll of a full season on the rest of his body, there's a good chance he keeps this up as the Kings make their playoff push.
Carter scored twice -- including once on the power play -- in Tuesday's shootout loss to the Coyotes. Carter has looked great since returning from an ankle injury, notching six goals and eight points in nine games. He logged 20:48 of ice time against Arizona and is back to being a fixture in the top-six and on the power play. Look for Carter to continue being a prime source of offensive production as the Kings try to secure a playoff berth.
