Penguins' Jeff Carter: Ends drought Friday
Carter scored a goal on three shots in Friday's 6-3 win over the Ducks.
Trips to Anaheim have often been a cure-all for what ails opposing offenses. In this case, it was helped Carter shake off an ugly 11-game point drought that saw him go minus-5 with 17 shots on net. The lack of offense lately has served to keep Carter firmly in a third-line role. He has eight tallies, 20 points, 82 shots on net, 55 hits, 42 blocked shots and a minus-6 rating through 48 appearances.... See More ... See Less

Carter generated a power-play goal in overtime, helping the Penguins to a 4-3 win over the Sabres on Friday.

Penguins' Jeff Carter: Deposits empty-netter
Carter scored an empty-net goal on three shots in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Blackhawks.
The Penguins' initial 3-0 lead didn't last, but they pulled ahead on a Sidney Crosby goal in the third period. Carter then added an empty-netter to secure the win in the final minute. The tally was his third of the season, but his first since Oct. 20. The 37-year-old has played in a third-line role for much of the season, and he's doing alright with 10 points, 29 shots on net, 16 hits and a plus-1 rating through 16 contests.

Penguins' Jeff Carter: Garners assist in return
Carter logged an assist and two PIM in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Capitals.
Carter was out for three games due to a lower-body injury. He skated on the third line for most of the contest, but he also filled in for a shift on defense when the Penguins had three blueliners unavailable. We wouldn't expect the 37-year-old to make a late-career position change -- he should continue playing a middle-six role up front. Carter has seven points (three on the power play), 20 shots on net, 10 hits, four PIM and a minus-2 rating through 10 appearances this season.... See More ... See Less

Penguins' Jeff Carter: Ruled out versus Bruins
Carter (lower body) won't be available for Tuesday's tilt with the Bruins, Rob Rossi of The Athletic reports.
With the Penguins entering a back-to-back, Carter should probably be considered a long shot of ace the Sabres on Wednesday either, though he hasn't been officially ruled out. The veteran center is currently stuck in a five-game goal drought during which he has registered two assists, nine shots and four hits. Without Carter in the lineup, recent call-up Drew O'Connor figures to slot into a third-line center role.... See More ... See Less

Carter moved up to the second line with Jake Guentzel (upper body) and Jason Zucker (undisclosed) both unavailable Tuesday. While the Penguins didn't get a lot going at even strength, Carter was able to help out as they cashed in a power-play chance in the second period. The 37-year-old has impressed so far with six points (three on the power play) through seven contests. He's added 16 shots on net, nine hits, nine blocks and an even plus-minus rating. He should continue to see regular middle-six usage with power-play time, so he could be a solid depth option in fantasy.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Jeff Carter: Scores goal in rout
Carter scored a goal on two shots in Thursday's 6-1 win over Los Angeles.
Carter is putting together a strong start to the 2022-23 campaign in which he has garnered two goals and two assists through the opening four contests. While the veteran center may not be able to maintain this pace throughout the campaign, he should still be capable of matching the 45-point mark he set last year in his first full season in Pittsburgh....
