Carter recorded a Gordie Howe hat trick -- goal, assist and fight -- in Saturday's 4-1 victory over the Ducks.

EDGE Analysis

The goal went into the empty net, but it still counts and it gave Carter his first 30-goal season since 2010-11. The fight with Ryan Kesler does make us pause, though -- Kesler landed a right straight to the kisser and it put Carter temporarily down on a knee. Much to our relief, Carter seems none the worse for wear because of the punch.

Carter has recorded a whopping nine game-winning goals this season.

EDGE Analysis

Carter is enjoying an incredible campaign, as he's just one tally shy of matching Sidney Crosby for the league lead at 30 goals, plus his 16 power-play points stand as his highest total since he was a member of the Flyers in 2009-10. The Kings are working with the league's second-ranked Corsi For percentage of 54.5; this means the team is controlling the puck very well and has factored into the savvy pivot's impressive shooting percentage of 16.9 through 55 games. He's a set-and-forget weapon in virtually any fantasy format.

Carter scored two goals and added two assists (one on the power play) during Thursday's win over Florida.

EDGE Analysis

Carter has been nothing sort of spectacular this season, and his 29 goals currently rank second in the league. He's set to top the 30-goal plateau for the first time since the 2010-11 season while also posting his best offensive showing since scoring 84 points during the 2008-09 campaign. It's been an incredible throwback for the 32-year-old forward.

Carter scored the game's only goal in overtime to lift the Kings to a victory over Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

Carter sits second overall in the NHL, just one snipe behind Sidney Crosby. His best offensive season was way back in Philly in 2008-09 when he delivered 84 points, including 46 goals, in 82 games. This season won't be quite so sharp, but Carter is on pace for more than 40 goals and the second-best output of his career.

Carter scored two first-period goals (one with the man advantage) during Wednesday's win over Colorado.

EDGE Analysis

Now up to 26 goals, 46 points and 157 shots for the year, Carter is in the midst of his best offensive campaign since scoring 84 points during the 2008-09 season. He's also on pace to post just his second career 40-goal showing. While it's impressive production from the 32-year-old forward, there is also likely some mild negative regression ahead of his current 16.6 shooting percentage. Still, Carter is providing an elite fantasy return.

Carter notched two assists -- one on the power play -- in the first 1:46 of Tuesday's game against New Jersey, fueling an eventual 3-1 win.

EDGE Analysis

Carter was credited with the primary helper on Anze Kopitar's man-advantage goal just 50 seconds in, and he followed it up with another primary helper less than a minute later. He'd been in a little skid over the prior four games, notching just a lonely assist, but Carter hasn't slumped too often this year. The 32-year-old remains on pace to surpass 70 points for the first time since 2008-09.

Carter dished out a pair of helpers in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Blues.

EDGE Analysis

Carter's linemates Tanner Pearson and Dustin Brown also had two points apiece against the overmatched Blues. The veteran center is now riding a three-game point streak, and has 15 points over his past 11 games.

Carter's hot play continued Saturday when he scored one goal and set up two others in the Kings' 4-3 overtime win over the Wild.

EDGE Analysis

In nine games since Dec. 20, Carter has scored eight goals and added four assists. He is second in goals (22) behind only Sid the Kid, and he has climbed into the league's top-15 scorers overall. Not bad for a 32-year-old veteran in a young man's league.

Carter scored a goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 2-1 overtime win over the Sharks.

EDGE Analysis

Carter has been an absolute monster lately, piling up seven goals and nine points in his last seven games. He's also fired a hearty 25 shots on net during the span, bringing him up to 124 in 38 games this season. However, what's most impressive is just how many of those pucks have gone in -- with the recent outburst, Carter has now found twine 21 times, second only to Sidney Crosby's 26 for the league lead.

Carter scored two goals and registered four shots on net during Friday's overtime loss to Dallas.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran banged in two rebounds to up his goal total to 19 for the year, and Carter is well on his way to his third consecutive 60-point, 200 shot campaign. Veterans can often become undervalued fantasy commodities, and while Carter isn't going to continue scoring on 17.1 percent of his shots, he's still a high-end fantasy asset in all settings.
