    Kings’ Jeff Carter: Shines on Opening Night

    Jeff Carter scored a goal on seven shots and added an assist in Thursday’s 4-3 overtime loss to the Wild.The 36-year-old Carter was by far the Los Angeles Kings’ best player in the game. He got them on the board in the dying seconds of the first period and set up Andreas Athanasiou for the go-ahead tally in the second. Carter missed the end of the 2019-20 campaign and went under the knife for core muscle surgery in June, but he appears to be fully healthy to start 2020-21. Thursday proved he still has something left in the tank, although that may not be enough for fantasy managers to take notice of the veteran forward.

    Kings’ Jeff Carter: Goes under knife

    Jeff Carter underwent core muscle surgery Thursday and is expected to be ready for the 2020-21 campaign, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports.Carter missed the final 10 games of the regular season with what was classified as a lower-body injury at the time. The 34-year-old saw action in just 60 contests in 2019-20 in which he tallied 17 goals and 10 helpers. For the second time in the last three years, the center failed to reach the 30-point mark. Once cleared to play, the Ontario native should be capable of still anchoring the second line, though the emergence of Blake Lizotte could see Carter relegated to a bottom-six role.

    Jeff Carter (lower body) continues to work on his recovery but won’t be ready if the season starts back up, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports.According to general manager Rob Blake, Carter needs to travel in order to meet with a specialist but is unable to do so given the current travel restrictions. The veteran center has failed to reach the 35-point mark in each of the last few seasons, in part due to various injuries. At this point, fantasy owners should probably be focused on 2020-21 in terms of a return date for Carter.
