Jeff Carter suffers foot injury
COLUMBUS -- As if the worst start in franchise history at 0-4-1 wasn't disappointing enough, The Columbus Dispatch reported on Monday that center Jeff Carter will be listed as questionable on Tuesday with a slight fracture on the top of his right foot.

"It's a little hairline crack where he took a shot (in Saturday’s loss to the Stars)," Columbus coach Scott Arniel told the paper. "It's an old injury. We’ll see where it's at (today). We're hoping it won’t be too long. We might get him back for the weekend. The ones on top you can sometimes play through.

According to the report, the injury is to the same foot that was bruised during the second day of training camp  during the Blue Jackets owners' tournament. Carter had surgery on the foot following the 2009-10 season when he starred in Philadelphia.

Carter apparently re-aggravated the injury at some point after blocking three shots in a 4-2 loss on Saturday in Dallas. For the season, Carter has no goals, three assists and a plus-1 rating through five games. He leads the Jackets in ice time among forwards (19:54), shots on goal (20) and faceoff wins (63).

Quote of the Day

Philadelphia is where I started my NHL career and this is where I want to be so I am really happy. This definitely gives me a lot of confidence by the Flyers showing that they have confidence in me. I know they want to see me get better as a player and this is the place to do it.
