Jeff Carter News
Pittsburgh Penguins center Jeff Carter potted two goals, including the game-winning marker, in Wednesday's impressive 5-2 road victory over the Avalanche. The veteran hit a power-play goal in the second period and added an even-strength tally in the third. These are Carter's first goals since Feb. 26. The 38-year-old has struggled for form and his ice time has nosedived in recent outings, with Carter even getting limited to only 6:30 of action in the previous game. However, Pittsburgh head coach Mike Sullivan got a great reaction out of Carter Wednesday night. Sitting on 11 goals and 15 assists through 68 outings, Carter is averaging a career-low 0.38 points per game this season.
Pittsburgh Penguins center Jeff Carter (lower body) is regarded as a game-time decision for Wednesday's battle with the Capitals. He has been on the shelf for three games with a lower-body problem, but it appears that the veteran is getting ready to return to the lineup, as he has ditched the non-contact jersey in practice. Carter centered the third line in Tuesday's practice and also worked on the second power-play unit. The 37-year-old has done reasonably well so far this season, notching two goals and four assists in nine appearances.
Pittsburgh Penguins center Jeff Carter (lower body) will sit out Tuesday's contest against Boston. He is nursing a lower-body injury since getting hurt in Saturday's loss to Seattle. Pittsburgh plays again Wednesday versus Buffalo, so it's possible Carter sits out multiple games. The veteran has enjoyed some good form this season, getting two goals and four assists in nine outings. Based on the morning skate, it looks like Carter will give up the third-line center spot to Drew O'Connor, who will make his season debut on Tuesday. He has managed six points in eight AHL appearances this season.
Pittsburgh Penguins center Jeff Carter is nursing an upper-body injury and is considered day-to-day. The veteran wasn't able to suit up for preseason action against Columbus at the weekend and he will also miss Tuesday's match against Detroit. Carter had his most productive season since 2016-17 last year with 45 points, scoring 19 goals and delivering 26 assists. He benefitted a lot from Evgeni Malkin's lengthy absence, which is something fantasy managers have to keep in mind whilst drafting their squad for the upcoming season. Carter will be stuck on the third line in 2022-23 unless the injury bug takes a large bite at Pittsburgh's forwards group.
