Carter Impressing Everyone

from Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer,

...In short, the player whom his teammates call “Carts” is blossoming into one of the NHL’s best two-way players.

“You see guys that have the ingredients that Jeff has, but never in the same person,” winger Mike Knuble said. “It’s always somebody who has the big shot, somebody who can fly up and down the ice, somebody who’s a great defender. He combines all of that. He gets matched up against the top players; he can do it all. Whatever you need at a certain point in the game, he seems to be able to deliver.”

“The sky is the limit for Jeff,” coach John Stevens said. “He has the skill set that’s conducive to scoring a lot of goals. He’s near the top of the league in shots. He skates well enough to get separation to get offensive opportunities, and he’s got a shot that can beat goalies from distance.”

Carter, from London, Ontario, is part of a deep 2003 draft that Holmgren said “may go down as the greatest ever.”
