Wild's Carter Returns Saturday

News: Ryan Carter (shoulder) will return to the lineup Saturday against the Kings, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Ryan Carter had sat out the Wild's previous 24 games, though the last two came while he was a healthy scratch. Now far enough removed from the shoulder injury he suffered in early February, Carter will step back into the lineup for Sean Bergenheim on the Wild's fourth line. Carter has three goals and 13 points in 48 games this season.

Wild's Carter Out Friday

News: Ryan Carter (shoulder) won't play Friday against the Flames.
Analysis: Coach Mike Yeo didn't want to change the lineup he used Tuesday against the Islanders, so Ryan Carter's return will have to wait. The Wild will play the second half of a back-to-back set Saturday versus the Kings, which could provide an opportunity for Carter to substitute in for another player.

Wild Activate Carter From IR

News: Ryan Carter (shoulder) was activated from injured reserve Tuesday.
Analysis: Ryan Carter was cleared to play a day ago, but he won't suit up for either of the Wild's back-to-back games to kick off the week. The team plans to make him a scratch Tuesday against the Islanders, as coach Mike Yeo appears content to roll with Jordan Schroeder and Sean Bergenheim as his fourth-line wingers. Carter could get back into the lineup Friday versus the Flames.

Wild's Carter Nears Return

News: Ryan Carter (shoulder) has been cleared to return to action, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: That said, the Wild plan to see how Monday's game against the Maple Leafs goes before deciding if Ryan Carter -- who last played on Feb. 9 -- will return to the team's lineup Tuesday against the Islanders.

Wild's Carter Now Eyeing Tuesday Return

News: Ryan Carter (shoulder) appears to be targeting a return to the lineup next week Tuesday against the Islanders, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Ryan Carter returned to practice earlier this week and was believed to have a shot at playing Saturday against the Blues, but the fact that he was only rotating in on the Wild's fourth line during Friday's session suggests his return will be put on hold for another game. The winger will miss his 20th consecutive contest Saturday, but should then be primed for regular duty during the remainder of the Wild's stretch run.

Wild's Carter Could Return Saturday

News: Ryan Carter (shoulder) skated during the Wild's optional practice Wednesday and could return as soon as Saturday, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: When he's back, he'll likely return to the fourth line, with Kyle Brodziak, Erik Haula or Sean Bergenheim moving to the bench.

Wild's Carter About A Week Away

News: Ryan Carter (shoulder) is projected to return in about a week, Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Though Ryan Carter was able to return to practice Monday, he's been sidelined since early February with the injury, missing the Wild's last 17 games. Because of the lengthy absence, Carter will probably require multiple practices to get back up to full speed. Next Monday's game against the Maple Leafs could represent a realistic target date for his return.

Wild's Carter Nears Return

News: Ryan Carter (shoulder) was present for practice Monday, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Ryan Carter, who has been out since Feb. 9, could return to action as soon as Thursday against the Capitals or if not, possibly Saturday against the Blues.

Wild's Carter Could Practice Monday

News: Ryan Carter (shoulder) could resume practicing with the team Monday, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Coach Mike Yeo suggested earlier in the week that Ryan Carter was perhaps two weeks or more away from returning to action, but it appears the winger might be starting to progress faster than anticipated. Given that he's missed over a month of action, Carter will probably require multiple practices before the team feels comfortable with activating him from IR.

Wild's Carter Likely More Than Two Weeks Away

News: Coach Mike Yeo acknowledged Tuesday that Ryan Carter (shoulder) shouldn't be expected to return in the next week or two.
Analysis: Ryan Carter has been able to skate for about a week, but Yeo indicated he didn't expect the winger to return to practice in immediate future. With that in mind, it's looking like a late-March return is the earliest Carter may be activated from IR, but it wouldn't be surprising if his absence stretched into April.

Wild's Carter Skates Tuesday

News: Ryan Carter (shoulder) skated on his own Tuesday, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: It's the first time Ryan Carter has been back on the ice since injuring his shoulder in a Feb. 9 game against the Canucks. Carter was initially projected to miss about a month, but with the winger only one week away from the end of that timetable, it seems likely he'll be out a bit longer than anticipated.

Wild's Carter Expected To Miss At Least A Month

News: Ryan Carter (shoulder) was ruled out Wednesday for at least a month, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Ryan Carter was placed on injured reserve earlier in the day along with Jason Zucker. Brett Sutter will replace Carter on the fourth line beginning Tuesday against the Jets, and could retain that role if he plays well right away. Carter has provided three goals and 10 assists over 48 games this season.

Wild Place Carter On Injured Reserve

News: Ryan Carter (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, KSTP.com reports.
Analysis: Ryan Carter exited the first period of Monday's win over the Canucks with the injury, with coach Mike Yeo effectively ruling the forward out of action "in the near future" after the game. The placement on IR ensures Carter will miss at least the next four games, but it wouldn't be a surprise if his absence stretches beyond that.

Wild's Carter Injures Upper Body

News: Ryan Carter suffered an upper-body injury during Monday's game against the Canucks and is expected to be sidelined for extended time, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Coach Mike Yeo said after Monday's game that Ryan Carter won't get back on the ice in the near future. Carter should consequentially be considered out until further news is released by Minnesota about the exact severity of his injury.

Wild's Carter Captures Assist

News: Ryan Carter captured an assist in Thursday's 7-0 win over the Sabres.
Analysis: The winger had previously been held without a point over his last eight games. As is typical of most bottom-six forwards, Ryan Carter provides most of his value in the form of PIM and hits and is mostly devoid of offense.

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.

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.
