Wild Activate Carter (Upper Body)

News: Ryan Carter (upper body) was activated from injured reserve Saturday, Rachel Blount of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: After missing the Wild's previous three games, Ryan Carter was cleared to return after practicing Friday. He'll be reinserted on the fourth line for Saturday's game against the Predators.

Wild's Carter Practices Friday

News: Ryan Carter (upper body) was present for Friday's practice, John Shipley of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Ryan Carter looks like he's just about ready to return from the upper-body injury that has kept him out of action for the last three games. Because he's missed beyond the seven-day minimum required for his IR stint, Carter could be activated in advance of Saturday's game against the Predators if coach Mike Yeo believes his health is sufficient. If that's the case, Carter would likely be plugged in on the fourth line.

Wild's Carter Skates Tuesday

News: Ryan Carter (upper body) skated Tuesday morning, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: It doesn't look as though a long-term absence is in the picture for Ryan Carter, but since he was placed on IR over the weekend with a retroactive date of Dec. 11, he'll still have to miss the Wild's next two games. He could be ready to go as soon as he's eligible for activation Saturday against Nashville.

Wild Place Carter On IR

News: The Wild placed Ryan Carter (upper body) on IR, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: It appears that Ryan Carter's injury is a little more serious than originally expected, so he'll sit out the next couple games to recover. The team recalled Brett Sutter from AHL Iowa to take Carter's spot on the roster.

Ryan Carter

Wild's Carter (Upper Body) Out Saturday

News: Ryan Carter will miss Saturday's game against the Coyotes due to an upper-body injury, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Since the Wild held an optional skate Saturday, it wasn't known that Ryan Carter was nursing an injury until coach Mike Yeo met with the press about two hours prior to the game against the Coyotes. It appears Carter is being considered day-to-day at this time, with Stu Bickel entering the lineup Saturday in his stead.

Wild's Carter Scores In Second Straight

News: Ryan Carter scored a goal for the second straight game and added an assist Thursday in a win over the Sabres.
Analysis: Considering Ryan Carter's scored those two goals on two shots in fourth-line ice time, he's not likely to continue producing offensively. But the goal was an interesting one -- he kind of cross-checked it in past Jhonas Enroth -- and with eight points in 14 games this year, he could be headed for a career-best campaign. Which still isn't saying a lot.

Carter Lone Man In For Wild On Tuesday

News: Ryan Carter scored his first goal of the year -- a shorthanded tally -- Tuesday, but was the only one among the Wild to penetrate Cory Schneider's shield in a 3-1 loss to the Devils.
Analysis: Although Ryan Carter's blowing away his normal scoring pace with six points in 13 games, there's not much for fantasy owners to get excited about here. His career high for points in a season is 15, so he could at least break that this year.

Wild's Carter Enters Lineup Tuesday

News: Ryan Carter (lower body) will be in the lineup Tuesday against the Penguins, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Ryan Carter was generally expected to play all along Tuesday, but the Wild just wanted to assess his condition during pregame warmups before signing off on his return to the lineup. He'll likely assume a spot on the Wild's fourth line for Tuesday's contest.

Ryan Carter

Wild's Carter Expected To Play Tuesday

News: Head coach Mike Yeo expects Ryan Carter (lower body) to play Tuesday against the Penguins.
Analysis: A final decision on Ryan Carter's status will not be made until pregrame warmups, but it appears he will play Tuesday after participating in the Wild's morning skate without issue.

Wild's Carter Practices

News: Ryan Carter (lower body) practiced with the team Monday, Rachel Blount of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Ryan Carter was injured Thursday against the Sharks, and missed Saturday's game against the Stars as well. The center has five assists in nine games to date, and could be back in the lineup Tuesday against the Penguins.

Wild's Carter Out Saturday With Lower-Body Injury

News: Ryan Carter will not play Saturday against the Stars due to a lower-body injury, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Ryan Carter saw his streak of three consecutive games with an assist come to an end Thursday against the Sharks, and apparently, he wasn't able to escape the game fully healthy either. Fortunately, Erik Haula (head) has been cleared to return after sitting the last two games, so he'll step in to fill in for Carter in the Wild's bottom six.

Ryan Carter

Wild's Carter: Assist In Three Straight Games

News: Ryan Carter picked up an assist in Tuesday's win over the Bruins.
Analysis: Ryan Carter has generated in assist in three straight games, but his presence on the team's fourth line probably won't afford him many chances at maintaining that run of scoring much longer. At the very least, however, it does seem that Carter has solidified himself as a regular in the Wild lineup, displacing Kyle Brodziak.

Ryan Carter

Wild's Carter Expected To Play In Opener

News: Head coach Mike Yeo expects Ryan Carter to play in Thursday's season opener against the Avalanche.
Analysis: Wild just signed with the Wild on Monday, and the team will not waste any time getting him into the lineup. It remains to be seen which line he will open on, but he probably will not play a prominent role out of the gate.

Ryan Carter

Wild Sign Carter

News: Ryan Carter signed with the Wild on Monday, James Mirtle of TSN reports.
Analysis: The veteran center played in New Jersey last season, and recorded seven goals and three assists in 62 games. He won't be a fantasy factor outside the deepest of leagues, and will mostly provide forward depth for the Wild in 2014-15.

Ryan Carter

Carter To Attend Devils Camp

News: Ryan Carter, an unsigned free agent, will attend training camp.
Analysis: Ryan Carter did not fetch much interest from the rest of the league and will likely make the team's roster out of camp, as he has been one of their regular defensive forwards since arriving in Newark during the 2012 season.

Ryan Carter

Carter Scores In Devils' Loss

News: Ryan Carter scored one of New Jersey's two goals in Friday's loss to the Islanders, giving him seven goals on the season.
Analysis: Ryan Carter is one of the Devils' regular defensive forwards and won't contribute too much offensively.

Ryan Carter

Carter Grabs Devils' Game-Winner

News: Ryan Carter scored the game-winning goal in Friday's win over Washington, his first goal since February 3.
Analysis: Ryan Carter isn't going to light the lamp often, but Friday's goal was an important tally to keep New Jersey's fading playoff hopes alive. Carter is a checking forward used primarily in defensive situations and likely won't find his name on the scoresheet too often.

Devils' Carter Returns To Lineup

News: Ryan Carter (upper body) will be back in the lineup Saturday against the Rangers, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: After taking part in Saturday's morning skate, Ryan Carter joined the team on the ice for pregame warmups and looks set to play following a three-game hiatus. He'll see light ice time on the fourth line.

Ryan Carter

Devils' Carter Skates Saturday

News: Ryan Carter (upper body) took part in the Devils' morning skate Saturday, Rich Chere of the Newark Star Ledger reports.
Analysis: Ryan Carter has missed the team's last three games but is expected to return to the lineup so long as he doesn't suffer and setbacks.

Devils' Carter (Upper Body) Eying Saturday Return

News: Ryan Carter (upper body) could return to action Saturday against the Rangers if he avoids any setbacks, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: Ryan Carter has now missed three games in a row due to this ailment, but looks to be poised for a Saturday return. The 30-year-old winger has five goals over 50 games this season.

Ryan Carter

Devils' Carter Out Thursday

News: Ryan Carter (upper body) will not play in Thursday's game, Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: Ryan Carter remains day-to-day but will miss a third consecutive game. The Devils' defensive pairings Thursday are Greene-Fayne, Salvador-Volchenkov, and Merrill-Zidlicky, with Eric Gelinas as the seventh defender.

New Jersey's Carter Day-To-Day

News: Coach Peter DeBoer said Tuesday that Ryan Carter (upper body) is "day-to-day," Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: With Ryan Carter unavailable for Tuesday's game against the Bruins, the Devils have recalled fellow forward Tim Sestito.

Devils' Carter Doubtful To Play Tuesday

News: Ryan Carter (upper body) is listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game vs. the Bruins, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Ryan Carter was unable to practice Monday and ruled out his second straight game shortly thereafter. Jacob Josefson skated on the fourth line in his stead at Monday's session and figures to enter the lineup Tuesday.

Devils' Carter Not Practicing Monday

News: Ryan Carter (upper body) did not practice Monday, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Ryan Carter missed Saturday's game with the upper-body injury and still appears to be limited heading into this week. He's just a fourth-liner for the Devils and probably doesn't have too many fantasy owners who are heavily invested in his availability for Tuesday's contest vs. the Bruins.

Ryan Carter

Devils' Carter Out Saturday

News: Ryan Carter was not on the ice for pregame warmups Saturday, indicating that he will not play against the Lightning, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: Devils coach Pete DeBoer said his team had one forward who would be a game-time decision, and it would appear that Ryan Carter was the player in question. From the sound of things, the 30-year-old forward can be considered day-to-day.
