Carter (lower-body) is questionable for Tuesday.

Carter did not return for the third period of Monday’s game in New York and is questionable for Tuesday’s game against the Devils. Carter has had a tough offensive season so he shouldn’t be active in season-long leagues on a such a busy night in the NHL, especially on a back-to-back.

Rob Blake said Carter (ankle) will hopefully join the team at practice following their road trip.

Carter has been out since October after having surgery to repair a cut on his ankle. It's encouraging to hear he might be practicing with the team again soon, but given that they haven't even finalized that timeline yet, it's best to consider him week-to-week for now.

Carter is expected to miss multiple weeks with a lower-body injury.

Carter was reportedly cut by a skate blade in the Kings’ win over the Canadiens on Wednesday and is expected to miss a couple of weeks. It’s still too early for an exact timetable, so expect the Kings to update his status in the next 24 hours. This is a huge loss for the Kings, but should afford Adrian Kempe extra playing time, especially after a four-point performance last night.

Carter (upper-body) is expected to return to the Kings lineup on Thursday.

Carter has missed the last five games with an upper-body injury, but he has taken part in line rushes the last two days, which suggests that he will return tonight vs. the Maple Leafs. Carter has 11 goals and 17 assists (28 points) in 34 games this season.

Carter (upper-body) will travel to Colorado for Monday's game.

Carter has missed the last four games with an upper-body injury, but he will travel to Colorado for Monday’s game, which suggests that he might play vs. the Avalanche. It is only a one game road trip, so he wouldn’t be travelling if there was no chance he plays.

Carter took the morning off, but will be in the lineup vs. Montreal.

Carter was held off of the ice this morning, but he is expected to play tonight vs. the Candadiens. Carter looks like he will have a new linemate tonight with Milan Lucic moving to the top line and Michael Mersch moving to Carter’s wing. He has 11 goals and 16 assists (27 points) in 30 games this season.

Carter (undisclosed) missed Wednesday’s practice; but is expected to play on Thursday.

Carter missed Kings practice this morning but is reportedly fine and is expected to play on Thursday vs. the Flames. Nick Shore skated in his spot this morning, so if Carter is unable to go for whatever reason, expect Shore to replace him between Dwight King and Tyler Toffoli.

Carter will skate on the Kings’ top line on Monday.

Carter, who usually plays on ‘That 70’s line’ with Tyler Toffoli and Tanner Pearson, moved to the top-line on Monday with both Toffoli (mono) and Person (broken leg) out indefinitely. Carter is skating with Anze Kopitar and Marian Gaborik, a line that should have no trouble generating offence.

Carter (undisclosed) did not skate on Friday and his status for game 1 is unclear.

It is believed that Carter took the day off to rest some bumps and bruises after a physical seven-game series vs. the Sharks. Monitor Carter's status as pregame warmups start at 7:30 p.m ET. If he plays expect him to skate on the second line between Tanner Pearson and Tyler Toffoli.
