More on Carter’s absence, Muzzin’s in for Kings

There’s a mix of good and bad/murky news for the Los Angeles Kings as they face the Vancouver Canucks on Monday.

The good: Remember Jake Muzzin‘s match penalty from Sunday? It put the Kings in a bind against the Arizona Coyotes there, but Los Angeles won, and they’ll get the valuable defenseman in the lineup tonight.

His debatable match penalty was rescinded.

The bad/murky: It seems like Jeff Carter may be dealing with a vague mix of injury and personal issues.

Los Angeles Kings Insider shares the full details¬†here, but the bottom line is that he’s considered day-to-day and is not playing against Vancouver. The injury itself may be a lower-body issue.

Perhaps we’ll get a better idea regarding his future beyond this game sometime soon?
