    Carter scored a pair of goals -- one on the power play and the other into an empty net -- in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Rangers in Game 3.

    Carter had been held off the scoresheet in the first two games of the series. He put the Penguins ahead 2-1 with a deflection on his first-period tally before adding insurance with an empty-netter in the third.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Slides assist in easy win

    Carter registered an assist in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Red Wings.

    The assist is great and all, but Carter has looked a bit sluggish in the attacking zone as the regular season winds down. He's recorded only one shot over his last three games, and it's been nearly a month since the veteran has strung together a multi-point outing. That said, there's still deep-league value in the 37-year-old's season total of 18 goals and 25 assists through 73 contests.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Good to go

    Carter (lower body) will play Saturday against the Red Wings, Seth Rorabaugh of reports.

    Carter exited Thursday's win over Boston with a lower-body issue, but whatever forced him from that contest clearly wasn't overly serious. The 37-year-old vet has collected three points through his last four games.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Leaves game with LBI

    Carter is being evaluated for a lower-body injury after leaving Thursday's game versus the Bruins, Mike DeFabo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Carter twice retreated to the locker room in the third period, and the second time was for the remainder of the contest. He picked up an assist prior to his exit, giving him five points through nine games in April. More information on Carter should be available before Saturday's game versus the Red Wings. The Penguins should be fine for their second-line center even if Carter misses time, as Evgeni Malkin is set to return from a suspension Saturday.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Earns assist in loss

    Carter picked up a helper in Tuesday's 6-4 defeat to the Avalanche.

    Carter remains stuck in a four-game goal drought but could be shifted back to his preferred center position if Jason Zucker (lower body) is cleared to play against the Rangers on Thursday.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Two points in Friday's win

    Carter scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 5-2 win over the Golden Knights.

    It's the first multi-point performance for the 37-year-old center since Jan. 20, and Carter managed only two goals and six points through 19 games in between. His numbers this season are about the same as last, and while Carter's third-line placement and spot on the second power-play unit still give him some value in deeper fantasy formats, his inconsistency can be tough to swallow.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Snaps five-game point drought

    Carter scored the game-winning goal Thursday in a 2-0 victory over Ottawa.

    Carter one-timed a pass from Kris Letang shelf over Matt Murray's blocker in the second period. The snipe snapped a five-game point drought that dated back to Jan. 25, the day before he inked his two-year contract extension. At 37, Carter is on pace to record at least 50 points, including as many as 25 goals, which would be his best single-season production since 2016-17.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Inks two-year extension

    Carter agreed to terms on a two-year, $6.25 million contract extension with Pittsburgh on Wednesday, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports.

    Carter joined the Penguins from the Kings back in April of 2021 with a year and a half remaining on the 11-year, $58 million deal he signed with the Flyers back in November of 2020. With 21 goals and 16 helpers in just 50 games for Pittsburgh, it seems the veteran is eager to stick around the Steel City for a little longer. When everybody is healthy, Carter figures to anchor the Pens' third line, though he has been called upon to play further up the depth chart from time to time.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Notches two helpers in win

    Carter notched a pair of assists, including one on the power play, in Monday's 5-3 win over the Golden Knights.

    Carter set up Jason Zucker's goal to spark the Penguins' comeback in the second period, and he also found Sidney Crosby on the empty-netter to finish off the win. The 37-year-old Carter added six shots and three hits in the win. The veteran center moved back to his natural position after a couple of games on the wing, filling a third-line role with power-play duties Monday. He's up to 22 points (four on the power play), 106 shots on net, 40 hits and a minus-3 rating through 32 contests. While Carter's been solid, moving down the lineup is likely to slow his scoring pace going forward.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Nets two goals in win

    Carter scored twice, logged two hits and added two PIM in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Ducks.

    Carter moved to left wing with Evgeni Malkin (knee) back in the lineup, though the former took 12 faceoffs and won nine of them. The 37-year-old Carter had the opening tally just 1:05 into the game and added an empty-netter in the third period. Carter's up to 11 tallies, 20 points, 92 shots on net, 35 hits, 22 PIM and a minus-1 rating through 29 contests. He'll continue to be a solid depth option in fantasy as long as he's in the top six.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Returns to lineup Saturday

    Carter (not injury related) will play Saturday in Dallas.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Still sidelined Thursday

    Carter (not injury related) will remain unavailable versus the Flyers on Thursday, Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

    Carter was rolling prior to his stint in the COVID-19 protocols, as he racked up five goals and three assists in his previous 10 outings. Looking ahead, the Penguins should be able to get the 37-year-old center on the ice for a practice session Friday, which should clear the way for him to play in Saturday's clash with Dallas.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Won't play Wednesday

    Carter (not injury related) will not be in the lineup against the Blues on Wednesday, Seth Rorabaugh of reports.

    Carter had just returned to practice for Wednesday's game-day skate, so it shouldn't come as a complete surprise to see him still being held out. Without the 37-year-old veteran, the Penguins will have to utilize either Teddy Blueger or Brian Boyle in a second-line center role. Even once cleared to return, Carter may have to settle for a spot in the bottom six if Evgeni Malkin (knee) is back in action as well.
