Carter will undergo surgery on Thursday to repair a damaged ankle tendon; expected to be out at least six weeks.
Carter will undergo a surgical procedure on his left leg; Kings announce he is out indefinitely.
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 (undisclosed) returned to Los Angeles to be evaluated; will not play on Monday.
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 (personal) is on the ice for the morning skate; will play Thursday.
Carter was in Canada on Wednesday for his grandfather’s funeral, but he has back in Los Angeles on Thursday and will be in the lineup tonight vs. the Flames. Carter is coming off of a two-point (1G / 1A) effort on Monday in Columbus.
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.
Carter (foot) returns to the Kings lineup Monday.
Carter missed the last 10 games with a broken foot. Prior to the injury, he played in 14 games registering five goals and four assists. The 28-year-old sniper had 26 goals in 48 games last season and had a career-high of 46 goals in 2008-09. He can be expected to lead the Kings in goals through the remainder of the season and should be activated in all formats.
Carter (foot) will be activated from injured reserve and take part in warm-ups, he is a game-time decision.
Carter missed the last 10 games but could return tonight depending on how warmups go. The Kings offence has missed their premier sniper, but were still able to go 6-1-2 because of strong goaltending. Carter will skate on a line with Dwight King and Mike Richards.
Carter (foot) could be back in the Kings lineup tonight.
Carter is taking line rushes with Dwight King and Mike Richards in Kings practice this afternoon suggesting he could be in the lineup tonight. We will get an official update after Kings' pre-game skate.
Carter (foot) participated in the Kings morning skate, but is still on IR and head coach Darryl Sutter said yesterday he is 'doubtful' for tonight.
Carter is still considered to be a few days away from returning and will likely need to participate in a few more practices before he plays. If he is unexpectedly activated off of IR and plays tonight, we will update.
