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.

Carter scored twice -- once on the power play -- during Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Blue Jackets.

EDGE Analysis

Carter earned his second multi-goal outing of December, with both appearances seeing six-plus shots. The aggressive mindset has been prevalent throughout the season, as the 2003 No. 11 pick continues to find twine with regularity. The 31-year-old is now at 16 tallies on the year, and if he continues this pace, 30-plus is a real possibility. Carter has not reached that feat since his days with the Flyers, dating back to 2010-11.

Carter scored a pair of goals on eight shots over 15:15 of ice time against the Sabres on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

That's three minutes below his season average; not so coincidentally, Carter also averages almost exactly three minutes per game on the power play, and the Kings didn't have a single power play in this contest. Despite that, he was able to have one of his best games of the year, continuing yet another remarkably productive season. With 24 points in 28 games, he's on his best scoring pace since his 84-point 2008-09 with the Flyers.

Carter sniped the overtime winner Saturday against Chicago.

EDGE Analysis

It was a great shot from Carter, who reached the 10-goal mark with the tally. The Kings are on a five-game winning streak and Carter has played an instrumental role, notching five goals and eight points through the streak. The 31-year-old has netted the game-winning goal in all but one of the team's last five games and is now up to 19 points in 22 games. With the clutch season he's having, Carter needs to be in your lineup every game.
