Carter notched one goal on four shots and added two assists in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Canadiens.

EDGE Analysis

After going pointless in his first three games, Carter broke out Thursday night, tallying three points in just over 15 minutes of ice time. His goal came midway through the third period and nixed any thoughts Montreal may have had about a potential comeback. He'll look to build off his impressive showing Thursday when the Kings visit Ottawa on Saturday.

Carter produced both goals for the Kings in their 4-2 split-squad road loss to the Coyotes on Tuesday. His third-period tally took place with the man advantage.

EDGE Analysis

Carter's surgically repaired ankle does not seem to be bothering him all that much, as skated for 21:31 of ice time in this one. In fact, that was more ice time than any other forward had logged between the two Pacific Division teams.

Carter is still working to strengthen his ankle post-surgery, but teammate Tanner Pearson said the veteran appeared "100 percent healthy" Saturday, when they performed on-ice drills at training camp, Josh Cooper of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kings coach John Stevens cautioned that Carter's repaired ankle is unlikely to return to normal. "That type of injury is just different," Stevens said. "It's healed but now there's scarring in there. He's got a scar he has to deal with." Carter recorded 13 goals and nine assists in only 27 games last season, so it's clear that he can still be productive after sustaining such a significant injury, and now he'll have winger Illya Kovalchuk alleviating some of the offensive challenges presented to the top-six group.

Carter is expected to be back to 100 percent ahead of training camp, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Carter missed a significant chunk of the season due to his ankle injury, but general manager Rob Blake told reporters he expects the center to be ready to go for 2018-19. The Ontario native logged a mere 27 games last year, but still managed to rack up 22 points when in the lineup. The veteran should continue to slot into a top-six role for the Kings.

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.

Carter had a hat trick and fired five shots on goal in Thursday's win over the Coyotes.

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 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.

Carter registered a goal, an assist, and three shots in 17:40 of ice time during Thursday's 3-1 over the Capitals.

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.
