Every Friday during the season, NHL.com fantasy hockey expert Matt Cubeta will provide you with an in-depth analysis of fantasy right wings in our weekly segment: "Right of Way." From updated right wing rankings to guys you should keep a close eye on and much more, Cubeta will be your fantasy right wing expert all season long.
One of the two big fish is officially gone. With Jeff Carter getting traded last night to the Los Angeles Kings, that leaves Rick Nash as the last remaining prime-time target before Monday's trade deadline.
Carter, center and right wing eligible in Yahoo! Fantasy Leagues, should see an immediate fantasy boost for the rest of this season, and his owners should definitely be happy about this trade. While the Kings are dead last in goals per game at just 2.05, Carter will end up playing on a better line than he was in Columbus, and despite this season's struggles the Kings clearly have more offensive depth than the Jackets -- Carter should end up playing the right side to either Anze Kopitar or former teammate Mike Richards.
