Jeff Carter Expects A Philly Welcome Tonight

from Sam Carchidi of Broad Street Bull,

Carter will play at the Wells Fargo Center Monday for the first time since he was dealt to Columbus. He had a broken foot when the Blue Jackets played in Philadelphia during his partial season with the team, and he wasn’t with the Kings yet when they played here.

“It’s exciting,” Carter, minus his two front teeth from getting hit with a stick last season, said of his return. “We had six good years here; I obviously loved playing here and had a lot of fun. Just looking forward to getting out there tonight.”

Carter, who leads the Kings with 24 goals, said he didn’t expect a warm greeting from fans Monday.

“It seems like everybody that goes back to play against their old team gets booed, so that’s just the way it is,” he said. “It doesn’t really bother me; you just go out and play the game.”

Carter was upset when the Flyers traded him, but said time has healed the wounds.
