TAMPA BAY – The Tampa Bay Lightning today announced that defenseman Matt Carle will undergo surgery to repair torn adductor muscles in his lower abdomen on Tuesday. The procedure will be performed in Philadelphia by Dr. William Meyers. Carle is expected to miss 6-8 weeks.
From Dan Gross at Philly.com:
WHEN A Flyers official heard that “40-Year-Old Virgin” director Judd Apatow was looking for a hockey player with no teeth for his new movie, he knew just who to recommend: Ian Laperriere.
The injured winger jumped at the opportunity and enlisted teammates Scott Hartnell, Matt Carle and James van Riemsdyk to join him in Hollywood for a 16-hour-day shoot in Apatow’s “This is Forty.”
The guys portray hockey players who hit up a bar after a game and end up dancing and somehow playing with Lappy’s false teeth.
“I made a fool of myself, but it was fun,” Lappy told us yesterday. “I like to try different things.”

from Ed Moran of the Philadelphia Daily News,
While the Flyers continue to wait for news from free agent winger Brendan Shanahan, they made a more critical move to strengthen their ailing defense, sending Steve Downie and Steve Eminger to Tampa Bay for 24-year-old defenseman Matt Carle.
from Media News,
Matt Carle was on the ice early for Monday’s Sharks practice. Then he was among the last group skating long after it had officially ended.
“Just come to the rink every day, work hard and try to get better,” Carle said. “I need to prove to the coach that I should be in the lineup.”
It’s a place where, surprisingly, where he has been spotted only sporadically recently. Carle has been a healthy scratch in three of the last four games. Already he has watched six games in street clothes from the press box.

San Jose Sharks Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the team has signed defenseman Matt Carle to a four-year contract extension. Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“When you look at the number of players that have committed to this organization over the last few years – guys like Patrick Marleau, Joe Thornton, Jonathan Cheechoo, Evgeni Nabokov, Craig Rivet, Milan Michalek – it’s easy to want to be here,” said Carle. “The front office has proven that they are serious about winning multiple Stanley Cups and that’s something I want to be a part of.”
