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) 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.

Jeff Carter (foot) joined the team on the ice for the end of the workout.

Carter has been out since early November and will miss his eighth straight contest tonight. Carter has been wearing a walking boot, so his return to the ice is a very good sign that he is progressing towards a return. The Kings are 5-1-1 without Carter, so they likely won't rush him back.

Jeff Carter has a broken foot.

There were unconfirmed reports that it was a broken foot but Darryl Sutter confirmed it today. A timetable for Carter's return was not given, but he has been ruled out for the remaining three games of their road trip. When a timeframe is released we will update Carter's status.

Kings Jeff Carter shows up at public signing in a walking boot.

The Kings have been very vague with Carter's injury details. There was speculation that Carter was dealing with a foot issue and a walking boot certainly solidify that report. A walking boot usually signifies a significant injury so Carter could be out for a extended period of time.

The Kings are practicing today without Jeff Carter, whose status is in doubt for tomorrow’s game. Hoping to get a further update after practice, but Carter apparently suffered some type of lower-body injury last night.

No word on how long Carter will miss but he's really given this Kings' offense life. He has six goals and nine points in 16 games with the Kings.
