Jeff Carter’s name is out there

Chris Nichols of Nichols on Hockey: Elliotte Friedman on Sportsnet 960 was asked about Los Angeles Kings forward Jeff Carter and his name in the rumor mill of late. Friedman says that Carter’s name is out there and the Boston Bruins are a team that has been looking for a center.

“Now, the interesting thing about Jeff Carter is, and I’m going to have to – we’re all going to have to start following this up a bit – is that there have been rumblings that if he doesn’t like where he’s traded to, he could just potentially retire. As I sit here this morning, I don’t know if that’s serious or if that’s a tactic. I don’t know the answer to that question.”

Friedman adds that Carter has made it clear in the past that if he’s not happy in a city, he’ll let the team know – Columbus Blue Jackets. So if a team acquires him, they’ll need to make sure he’s okay with the idea.
