Jeff Carter was seen wheeling around in the Staples Center on a motorized scooter.

His foot was bandaged and elevated. It looks as if the rumored prognosis for Carter's injury (6-8 weeks) could be accurate based on what he is doing and how he is doing it. Still, there is no definitive timetable for his return.

Jeff Carter's leg was cut by a skate during Wednesday's game and he's had surgery as a result.

Carter is out indefinitely, but beyond that we don't have a timetable for him. There was an earlier report that suggested that the skate cut caused tendon damage. He has three assists in six games this season. We wish him the best in his recovery.

We will keep you posted when the Kings state something official on the matter.

Jeff Carter picked up three assists on Saturday.

The trio of helpers give Carter 66 points this season. He will lead the Kings in points, becoming the first player to beat Anze Kopitar in 10 years for the Los Angeles lead. Carter has tied his career high in assists with 34 and it was the third straight season that he has reached the 60 point mark. He has found a home in Los Angeles with the Kings.

Jeff Carter reached the 60-point mark on Tuesday.

Carter recorded an assist in a 3-2 shootout loss to Arizona. This is the third straight campaign that he's reached the 60-point milestone, but in each of the previous two seasons he finished with 62 points. With that in mind, this might end up being his highest scoring season since 2008-09.
Mar 15 - 6:14 AM

Jeff Carter was one of the main difference-makers in the Los Angeles Kings' 4-2 victory against the Washington Capitals on Saturday.

It was a low-event game, yet Carter managed a goal and an assist in this contest, pushing him to 31 goals and 59 points in 67 games. This marks his first 30+ goal season since 2010-11. He's only three points behind his 62-point totals from both 2014-15 and 2015-16. It seems likely that this will be his second-best scoring season (as he's unlikely to match the 84 points he managed in 2008-09).
Mar 12 - 3:13 AM

Jeff Carter had the Gordie Howe hat trick Saturday.

Carter had a goal, an assist and a fight. It was a rare fight for the veteran as it was only his third of his career, a span of 12 seasons. Carter had 30 goals and 55 points and should be active in every lineup this season.

Jeff Carter reached the 30-goal plateau for the first time as a member of the Kings on Saturday, as the Kings topped the Ducks 4-1.

Feb 25 - 7:54 PM

Jeff Carter picked up an assist Saturday and now has 53 points including 24 helpers.

Feb 19 - 6:00 AM

Jeff Carter scored two goals and two assists in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Florida Panthers.

Carter picked up three of those four points in the opening period, as he helped set up goals by Dustin Brown (1-0) and Tyler Toffoli (3-1), while his goal gave the Kings a 2-0 lead at the time. Carter has now racked up 10 points in his last eight games, and he's up to 29 goals and 51 points in 55 games this season. That puts him on pace to score 43 goals and 76 points.

Jeff Carter scored Saturday's only goal as he pushed his Kings past the Flyers in overtime.

Carter's tally was his 27th of the season, and it was assisted by Anze Kopitar and Drew Doughty as well. But it was all set up by Kopitar's dazzling skill and ability to find a seam through the crease to get the puck to Carter through. Carter just had to tap it in, as they say.
