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.

EDGE Analysis

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, although 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.

EDGE Analysis

Carter has now scored in three straight games to help the Kings remain in the playoff picture. 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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

Carter has been quick to shake off the rust after a 55-game absence due to an ankle injury. The 33-year-old center now has four goals, five points, and a whopping 26 shots in six games since his return and needs to be played regularly in all formats down the stretch.

Carter scored a power-play goal and recorded nine shots during Monday's 3-2 overtime victory against the Golden Knights.

EDGE Analysis

After going pointless in his return to the lineup Saturday, Carter was a force during Monday's comeback win. The veteran center is a high-volume shooter who boasts a cross-category profile. Additionally, Carter is locked into a top-six role and a key cog on the No. 1 power-play. Just note that there might still be some rust to shake off after missing the majority of the first five months of the season with an ankle injury.

Carter (ankle) returned to the lineup Saturday against Edmonton, firing four shots on goal in 17:36 of ice time.

EDGE Analysis

Carter had been out of action since Oct. 18 and made his much-anticipated return in a tight loss to the Oilers. While he was held off the scoresheet, Carter looked dangerous and came close to finding twine on a few occasions. The veteran forward had put up three consecutive 60-plus point campaigns prior to 2017-18 and makes for a great fantasy play down the stretch as the Kings try to secure a playoff berth.

Carter (ankle) has been activated from injured reserve and will suit up for Saturday's matchup with the Oilers.

EDGE Analysis

Carter hasn't played a game since Oct. 18, but he notched three assists and 13 shots on goal in the first six contests. The 33-year-old winger entered this season with three consecutive 60-point campaigns, so the Kings are hoping he will help spark their 19th-ranked offense (2.8 goals per game) while they make a playoff run.

EDGE Analysis

Carter was initially considered doubtful for Saturday's affair, but he's apparently made some progress following a night's rest. Official word on his status could come down to pregame warmups, though the team will need to activate him from injured reserve in order for him to play.
