“No, I think he's been alright. If you look at our center position, two of your top three centermen have gone down. So we’re basically one injury away from having to play wingers out of position. You can never have enough centermen.
"This guy is an NHL player. He's played a bunch of games in the NHL in some good situations. I think he was in Anaheim for five years and won quite a few games there. He knows how to the play the game and gives us a little bit of veteran experience up the middle. We're pretty young there."
DeBoer coached Carter in Florida last season.
“We basically picked him up at the trade deadline in Florida last year, so I worked with him for the last six weeks of the season. He’s a centerman. He’s versatile. He plays the game the right way. He plays with energy. I think he can kill penalties. He’s one of those guys that can play a role and help us.”
Carter was scheduled to join the Devils Wednesday night, but DeBoer said he wasn’t certain if he’d be in the lineup Thursday night against the Coyotes at Jobing.com Arena.
"I don't know. He's scheduled to get in tonight so depending on the time and things like that, we;ll talk about it," DeBoer said.
"I think he's a good faceoff guy. I don't know what the numbers show but I believe he can help us there," the coach said.

Great move by Lou to sign a depth player . He wont score 20 goals or win us a cup but never a bad thing to have guys that can fill in while your stars are injured.
Carter has a Cup ring.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say he scores a goal tonight
Well, he was on the ice for Phoenix's goal just now so he paid dividends for them so far!
