from Rich Chere of NJ Advance Media,
Ryan Carter came to training camp without a contract on the faith that the Devils wanted him back for another season and would eventually find room on the roster to sign him.
That has been the indication from general manager Lou Lamoriello all summer and into the fall. But Carter, who never even signed a tryout contract, is losing hope.
“I can’t say that I’m optimistic. I don’t think I can say I’m the opposite, but I can’t say I’m optimistic,” Carter told NJ Advance Media.
The 31-year-old forward has appeared in three preseason games, but so far he hasn’t been offered contract. He is getting to the point where he needs to get some answers.
“I left it alone for a while. We’re obviously running out of time here,” Carter said.
If there were ropes instead of glass, this would be a TKO.
Carter received 2 minutes for tripping on the play.
A late goal by Ryan Carter put the Devils ahead 4-3 and Zach Parise added an empty-netter to seal the game.
The Devils jumped out to a 3-0 only to find the Rangers come back to tie the game up early in the 3rd period.
Game 6 is Friday night in New Jersey. Will the Rangers force a game 7?
Here is Carter’s game winning goal…

from Ducks Blog at the OC Register,
Rookie center Ryan Carter suffered a broken right wrist in Wednesday night’s victory over the Colorado Avalanche, an MRI exam performed Thursday revealed.
Carter was checked into the board by Colorado defenseman Jeff Finger but the injury occured when Carter’s right hand went through an opening in the glass that is used by photographers.
From Mark Whicker at the OC Register,
[Ryan] Carter joins Dustin Penner, Andy McDonald, Chris Kunitz and Ryan Shannon among non-drafted college players that [assistant GM David] McNab spotted and signed.
“We were motivated because we were afraid he would explode the next season and be one of the very best players in college hockey,” McNab said.
“It’s something we used to have success with, before the salary cap came, because you could spend a million or a couple of million on a guy that you really liked. Not every team believed in that sort of investment. But now, with the cap being tighter, the salaries for those players have gone down and more teams are getting involved. So it’s harder now.”
