Although it has been three seasons since he has played for the Flyers, Jeff Carter has not played a game in Philadelphia as visiting player.

That's going to change when the Kings face off against the Flyers in Philly Monday night. Carter is downplaying his return to the City of Brotherly Love where he enjoyed tremendous success but was also the lightning rod of controversy. "It is what it is. It's been three years since I left there. It's not a big deal really," Carter said. "It should be a lot of fun though." We doubt the vocal Philly fans will be kind to Carter, though. It will be interesting to see if he brings his A-game to the Wells Fargo Center.

Jeff Carter skated alongside Tanner Pearson and Tyler Toffoli during Friday's practice.

Kings coach Darryl Sutter balked at the idea that Carter was put on their line to help out the 21-year-old forwards. Sutter argued that Toffoli and Pearson were already playing well. In fact, Sutter might be hoping that the kids spark Carter, who has no goals and an assist in his last five games.

Jeff Carter prefers the NHL rink dimensions to the international one featured in the Olympics.

"It almost feels like there's more room over there, in the NHL. The ice is smaller but I feel like guys are a little more spread out," he said. "They force more on the boards. Where here, you get the puck on the wall, teams kind of back off and give you that space on the wall and just clog up the middle. It's a little bit different." It's been an adjustment for players accustomed to the North American-sized arenas and there has been some suffocating defense displayed in the middle of the ice throughout the tournament.

Jeff Carter scored a hat trick in under 12 minutes against Austria.

Canada has a 6-0 lead over Austria after two periods. They've been night and day compared to their sluggish start against Norway on Thursday. Carter had no points and three shots on goal in 14:48 minutes versus Norway.

Jeff Carter is skating with Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz in Canada's first practice in Sochi.

Keeping up with coach Mike Babcock's line combinations throughout the tournament may prove to be difficult because he's expected to shuffle the deck often. Still, it's worth noting who gets to play with Crosby and Carter was projected to get the first crack at that line alongside the Penguins' duo.

Jeff Carter fired a game-high seven shots on goal in the Kings' 3-0 loss to Anaheim on Saturday night.

Los Angeles entered this Stadium Series game with 2.42 goals per game, sixth-worst in the league, so this will only drop further now. This team is certainly getting enough pucks on net (averaging over 31 per night), but it's not finishing nearly enough. Anze Kopitar had an early chance to put the Kings on the board, but he was denied on a first-period penalty shot.
