The Pittsburgh Penguins have acquired Jeff Carter from the Los Angeles Kings, TSN’s Bob McKenzie reports

Carter has one year left on his current contract, with a $5.27 million cap hit entering the 2021-22 season. 

Through 40 games, Carter has eight goals and 19 points, and though he’s not the world-class player that he used to be, he could provide some ancillary scoring punch for a Penguins team that is lingering as a contender. 

More to come.
