  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: First goal of season wins game

    Carter scored a goal Thursday in a 4-2 win over Tampa Bay.

    It was Carter's first goal of the season. He put the Penguins up 3-2 in the third period with a shot from the slot off a quick feed from Matt Nieto. Carter has two points (one goal, one assist) in his last three games, but those are the only points he's put up this season. Over the last month, his ice time has mostly hovered in the seven to nine minute range, so there hasn't been much opportunity for him to contribute for fantasy managers.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: First point of season

    Carter picked up an assist Saturday in a 3-2 win over Toronto.

    It was his first point of the season in his 14th game. Carter is nearing the sunset of his career, and he's toiling on the Pens' fourth line. He was averaging 17:40 of ice time per contest just two seasons ago, but that has dropped to 9:46 of playing time per game in 2023-24. Carter is no longer a fantasy factor, and it's hard to watch him slide into obscurity.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Suiting up Sunday

    Carter (lower body) will be in Sunday's lineup against the Golden Knights.

    Carter hasn't dressed since Nov. 9, missing the last four contests. The veteran forward has yet to score a point through 10 appearances this season. He'll suit up in a fourth-line role Sunday.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Won't play Saturday

    Carter (lower body) isn't in the lineup for Saturday's contest against Carolina.

    This will be the Penguins' fourth straight game without Carter. He has no points, two PIM and seven shots in 10 outings this year. When Carter's healthy, he might be used on the fourth line.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Unavailable vs. Devils

    Carter (lower body) will miss Thursday's game against New Jersey.

    Carter also missed Pittsburgh's previous two contests. He has no points in 10 games this year. When Carter's ready to return, he might take a spot on the Penguins' fourth line.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Full practice participant

    Carter (lower body) practiced without limitations ahead of Thursday's matchup with New Jersey, Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com reports.

    Carter could be an option against the Devils if his injury concerns are behind him. Even if Carter is available, he is far from a lock for a spot in the lineup, especially considering he has zero points in 10 outings. If Carter does play, Vinnie HInstroza is the most likely candidate to be dropped from the lineup.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Not playing Tuesday

    Carter (lower body) won't play Tuesday versus the Blue Jackets.

    Carter missed practice Monday, but the Penguins' quick recall and reassignment of Johnny Gruden earlier Tuesday casts doubt on whether Carter is sitting out injured or as a healthy scratch. The 38-year-old Carter has been out of the lineup for three of the previous four games after starting the season scoreless in 10 outings.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Absent from practice Monday

    Carter was not at Monday's practice session due to a lower-body injury, Pens Inside Scoop reports.

    Carter has been scratched in three of the Penguins' last four contests as he continues to find himself on the outside looking in. In fact, Carter's lone appearance during that stretch was when Pittsburgh was playing Carter's former club, the Kings. Even if cleared to play against Columbus on Tuesday, Carter may once again be a healthy scratch in favor of Vinnie Hinostroza.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Draws back into lineup

    Carter, who was a healthy scratch for Pittsburgh's previous two games, will draw into the lineup Thursday versus LA, Penguins play-by-play announcer Josh Getzoff reports.

    Carter has been held off the scoresheet through nine appearances this season, though he has recorded seven shots, four hits and three blocks. He's likely to serve in a fourth-line role while also getting work on the second power-play unit Thursday. Vinnie Hinostroza, who played in Pittsburgh's previous two contests, was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Thursday.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Scores twice in win

    Carter scored two goals on five shots in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Avalanche.

    Carter put his 11-game goal drought to rest in a big way Wednesday. His first goal came on the power play in the second period, and it stood as the game-winner. He also scored an insurance marker in the third. The 38-year-old center has had his share of struggles, but he was a strong performer in a tough matchup. Carter is at 11 goals, 26 points (eight on the power play), 115 shots, 75 hits, 49 blocked shots and a minus-16 rating through 68 appearances.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Ends seven-game point slump

    Carter had a goal in the Penguins' 7-3 win over Tampa Bay on Sunday.

    Carter scored at 17:50 of the second period to increase Pittsburgh's edge to 5-2. It was his ninth goal and 21st point in 56 games in 2022-23. Carter snapped a seven-game scoring drought with the goal.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Ends drought Friday

    Carter scored a goal on three shots in Friday's 6-3 win over the Ducks.

    Trips to Anaheim have often been a cure-all for what ails opposing offenses. In this case, it was helped Carter shake off an ugly 11-game point drought that saw him go minus-5 with 17 shots on net. The lack of offense lately has served to keep Carter firmly in a third-line role. He has eight tallies, 20 points, 82 shots on net, 55 hits, 42 blocked shots and a minus-6 rating through 48 appearances.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Deposits empty-netter

    Carter scored an empty-net goal on two shots and blocked two shots in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Coyotes.

    Carter put the icing on the cake Sunday, helping the Penguins end a six-game skid. The 38-year-old center has three goals and two helpers over his last five contests, which followed a seven-game point drought. He's up to seven goals, 19 points, 62 shots on net, 42 hits, 37 blocks and a minus-2 rating through 36 outings.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Attempts pass, but scores

    Carter scored a goal during a 4-2 loss to the visiting Devils on Friday.

    Carter, who has converted in consecutive contests, scored his sixth of the season, giving the Penguins a 2-1, second-period lead. The 37-year-old center converted after Pierre-Olivier Joseph drove to the net and passed to Carter, whose return pass ricocheted off Jonas Siegenthaler and past goalie Vitek Vanecek. Carter produced just one shot in 14:36 of ice time in the loss.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Ends seven-game scoring drought

    Carter scored a goal and recorded an assist in a 5-4 overtime loss to Detroit on Wednesday.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Seals win for Pens

    Carter generated a power-play goal in overtime, helping the Penguins to a 4-3 win over the Sabres on Friday.

    Carter picked up a rebound at the doorstep to stun the home team in the extra frame. While the savvy veteran hasn't had any huge games, his consistency has been key en route to 14 points (four goals, 10 assists) through 24 contests.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Deposits empty-netter

    Carter scored an empty-net goal on three shots in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Blackhawks.

    The Penguins' initial 3-0 lead didn't last, but they pulled ahead on a Sidney Crosby goal in the third period. Carter then added an empty-netter to secure the win in the final minute. The tally was his third of the season, but his first since Oct. 20. The 37-year-old has played in a third-line role for much of the season, and he's doing alright with 10 points, 29 shots on net, 16 hits and a plus-1 rating through 16 contests. Carter's fantasy value is likely limited to deeper formats.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Garners assist in return

    Carter logged an assist and two PIM in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Capitals.

    Carter was out for three games due to a lower-body injury. He skated on the third line for most of the contest, but he also filled in for a shift on defense when the Penguins had three blueliners unavailable. We wouldn't expect the 37-year-old to make a late-career position change -- he should continue playing a middle-six role up front. Carter has seven points (three on the power play), 20 shots on net, 10 hits, four PIM and a minus-2 rating through 10 appearances this season.

  • Penguins' Jeff Carter: Game-time call Wednesday

    Carter (lower body) will be a game-time decision versus Washington on Wednesday, Penguins' play-by-play announce Josh Getzoff reports.

    Carter could return after having been out of action for the club's previous three contests due to his lower-body issue. If cleared to play, Carter would almost certainly step into the third-line center role, which could see Samuel Poulin dropped from the lineup depending on the health of Josh Archibald (undisclosed).
