Carter not joining Devils on trip to Washington

NEWARK, N.J. -- New Jersey Devils forward Ryan Carter will not make the trip with the team for the its back-to-back road contests with the Washington Capitals on Thursday and Saturday.

Carter was involved in a collision during Monday afternoon's home game with the Ottawa Senators that left him with a head injury. He won't be available in either of the next two games; the team will not return home on the day in between the two games in Washington.

At practice Wednesday, rookie Stefan Matteau took Carter's place on the team's third line with Stephen Gionta and Steve Bernier.

Quote of the Day

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
