Jeff Carter won't play vs. Flyers

Jeff Carter's return to Philadelphia with Columbus will be quite a bit different than what Mike Richards experienced when he came back with the Los Angeles Kings.

Carter told the Columbus Dispatch that he will make the trip to see friends and former teammates, but that he definitely out for Saturday night's game.

Carter has a hairline fracture on the top of his right foot, suffered in mid-October. He had injured the bone in training camp and missed only a few days, but the re-occurence was cause for concern. He had X-rays Monday to see how the bone was healing.

"We're not going to put him in a game before he's ready just so he can play in Philadelphia," GM Scott Howson told the Dispatch this week.
