Carter picked up a power-play helper in Thursday's 4-1 loss to Winnipeg.

EDGE Analysis

Carter stopped his three-game cold streak, registering assist No. 7 in March -- his highest total in a month this season. The 31-year-old has now tied last year's apple total (34), and remains four shy of tying his career-high 38. It's possible the center sets a new milestone, especially being in the giving mood as of late. Additionally, Carter does have 12 shots on goal in his last two outings, so expect him to also find twine sooner rather than later due to the aggressive mindset.

Carter handed out three assists Thursday, with the final one coming on Anze Kopitar's overtime winner against the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

He's been rumbling along nicely of late, with eight points in his last six contests. Carter's been a consistent scorer this year, but not necessarily an explosive one -- this was just his second three-point effort of the year, with the last one actually a four-point night way back on Oct. 22. There's no reason not to expect him to be a scoresheet regular down the stretch as the Kings jockey for playoff positioning.

Carter scored in overtime to beat the Capitals on Wednesday, completing a fabulous effort that also featured an assist and a game-high six shots on goal.

EDGE Analysis

Carter's 20:48 of ice time also trailed only Anze Kopitar, as the former Flyer was all over the ice in this one. With three goals on 15 shots over his past two games, Carter is as hot as any player in the NHL at the moment. This early-March hot streak comes as a great relief to Carter owners considering he totaled just two goals in the whole month of February.

Carter notched a pair of goals in Monday's win over the Canucks.

EDGE Analysis

Carter was active around the net in this one, firing off a season-high nine shots on goal. The 31-year-old also recorded a plus-3 rating in the contest, bringing his season total to plus-13. He may not be having his best campaign, but he's still on pace for yet another 50-point season.

Carter tallied a goal on six shots, an assist, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 2-1 win over the Oilers.

EDGE Analysis

After missing the scoresheet in his last two outings, Carter came back in a big way with a scoresheet filling game on Thursday. He still isn't having the flashiest season ever, but he has managed to record seven points in his last nine games. He's also been a shot machine this season, as he's racked up 170 of those bad boys in 55 games after tallying 218 in a full slate of 82 games last season. The 31-year-old is surely worth a look in some formats.

Carter was named the game's second star Tuesday after putting up a power-play goal on six shots as well as an even-strength assist in a 9-2 romp over Boston.

EDGE Analysis

He's not the sexiest name in fantasy circles anymore, but Carter's throwing down another solid season -- a five-game injury absence aside, he's actually operating at a slightly higher scoring pace than last year. The fifth 60-point campaign of his career may well be in the works.

Carter scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Senators. It was his first multi-point game since Nov. 20.

EDGE Analysis

For all the hype around him, Carter has really only had one big season (84 points in 82 games) and it was back in 2008-09. He's a pretty reliable 55-60 point guy, with heavy emphasis on goals -- Carter has delivered three straight seasons of 26 goals or more and that included the lockout year. Barring injury, he should be a 25-60 man this season and that's solid value for a fantasy forward.

Carter tallied a goal in his return from injury against Toronto on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Carter quickly showed why the Kings were eager to get him back into the lineup, registering his 29th point in 34 games this season. The 31-year-old is a vital member of the power play, logging two goals and three assists with the extra attacker.

Carter (upper body) will return to the lineup Thursday against the Maple Leafs.

EDGE Analysis

Carter has been sidelined since Dec. 26 with the upper-body issue, but finally rejoined line rushes during Wednesday's practice and will now take his spot back in the lineup. If the practice lines hold as expected, the veteran should center the Kings' second line alongside Tanner Pearson and Marian Gaborik.

Carter (upper body) took part in the Kings line rushes Wednesday, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

EDGE Analysis

Carter's presence at practice Wednesday certainly bodes well for his chances to rejoin the lineup Thursday against the Maple Leafs. However, expect another update at some point following morning skate Thursday confirming his status one way or the other.
