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.

It's always a little bit weird, but it moves on. They've got a good team, and they played well tonight. I think that's just part of it.
