Carter's assist to Dustin Brown opened the scoring Thursday in a 2-1 win over Dallas.

EDGE Analysis

Carter hasn't been worth much in fantasy this year, but there's some value as of late with five points in his past three games. There's a chance he might be breaking out of his slump, so it's worth monitoring to see if he gets the job done, which could allow you to grab him for pennies on the dollar.

Carter racked up a goal and two helpers against Pittsburgh on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Carter managed just two points in seven games back from a minor upper-body injury, but went on a tear versus the visiting Penguins and recorded his fifth multi-point effort of the year. With a mere 22 points this season, the 33-year-old won't be getting back to the 60-point threshold, a feat he achieved six times in his career.

Carter (upper body) will return to the lineup for Saturday's game against Vegas.

EDGE Analysis

Carter missed Thursday's game against Arizona due to an upper-body injury, but he was never expected to be sidelined long term. The veteran pivot will return to his usual top-six role, skating with Adrian Kempe and Tyler Toffoli on the Kings' second line against the Golden Knights.

Carter will miss Thursday's game against the Coyotes due to an upper-body injury, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports.

EDGE Analysis

Carter has averaged 0.73 points per game over 14 years of NHL service time split between the Blue Jackets, Flyers and Kings, but the pivot has only produced seven goals and nine assists through 37 games this year. His team ranks dead last offensively at 2.3 goals per contest, so it's not like he's been insulated well on the attack. With this injury further cutting into his fantasy value, poolies can only hope that Carter will be fit to play in Saturday's home tilt against the Golden Knights.

Carter notched a power play goal Thursday, but it wasn't enough in a 3-2 loss to Edmonton.

EDGE Analysis

Carter has done a nice job producing as of late with three points in his past four games, but the Kings just aren't generating enough offense (2.2 goals per game) to make him a valuable option in many formats. If L.A. gets things figured out on offense, he'll be worth having, but for now, he's limited to matchup-based spot starts.

Carter had an assist during Sunday's 5-2 win over Edmonton.

EDGE Analysis

Carter unloaded a power-play goal to complement a 5-on-5 assist in Saturday's 4-1 home win over the Blue Jackets.

EDGE Analysis

Carter has two consecutive multi-point outings, and three of his four goals this season have taken place on the man advantage. Even the casual hockey fan should be familiar with Carter -- he's produced 0.74 points per game over 14 seasons between the Flyers, Blue Jackets and Kings -- but his team is averaging a league-low 2.15 goals per contest, thus making it difficult for Carter to produce consistently.

Carter scored with the man advantage and set up an Ilya Kovalchuk goal, but his team dropped a 5-2 decision to the Flyers on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Carter ended a three-game scoring drought by hitting the twine in the second period and giving the Kings a chance before things fell apart over the rest of the contest. Los Angeles' struggles aren't helping Carter, who is producing at slightly below average by his usual standards. Keep him active, but be open to other options if a matchup is good.

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.
