Penguins' Jeff Carter: Solid in postseason

Carter garnered four goals and one assist, including two power-play points, in seven playoff matches with the Rangers. Carter's numbers in the postseason followed a fantastic season in Pittsburgh in which he tallied 19 goals, his highest total since 2016-17 when he was with the Kings. The 37-year-old Carter will be back with the Penguins next season and could be elevated into a second-line role depending on whether the team re-signs Evgeni Malkin and/or Bryan Rust.

Penguins' Jeff Carter: Slides assist in easy win

Carter registered an assist in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Red Wings. The assist is great and all, but Carter has looked a bit sluggish in the attacking zone as the regular season winds down. He's recorded only one shot over his last three games, and it's been nearly a month since the veteran has strung together a multi-point outing. That said, there's still deep-league value in the 37-year-old's season total of 18 goals and 25 assists through 73 contests.

Penguins' Jeff Carter: Good to go

Carter (lower body) will play Saturday against the Red Wings, Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com reports. Carter exited Thursday's win over Boston with a lower-body issue, but whatever forced him from that contest clearly wasn't overly serious. The 37-year-old vet has collected three points through his last four games.

Penguins' Jeff Carter: Leaves game with LBI

Carter is being evaluated for a lower-body injury after leaving Thursday's game versus the Bruins, Mike DeFabo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Carter twice retreated to the locker room in the third period, and the second time was for the remainder of the contest. He picked up an assist prior to his exit, giving him five points through nine games in April. More information on Carter should be available before Saturday's game versus the Red Wings. The Penguins should be fine for their second-line center even if Carter misses time, as Evgeni Malkin is set to return from a suspension Saturday.

Goaltending, power play, and Jeff Carter are big question marks as regular season enters stretch run

The Pittsburgh Penguins have six regular season games remaining before the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs and it would be a good time to start getting some things right. It is not exactly a secret that the Penguins are somewhat backing into the playoffs with with a 4-7-2 record over the past couple of weeks, and they are still struggling to get a full roster on the ice because of injuries and a suspension.
