Kings talking deal for Carter

As is being widely reported this afternoon, the Kings are talking to Columbus about a possible deal for Jeff Carter. TSN’s Bob McKenzie has mentioned that Jack Johnson might be the player going the other way, and I can confirm that as a strong possibility. Stay tuned…things could happen very quickly.

[UPDATE: I’m told that Carter would need to pass a physical — standard operating procedure — but that if the trade goes through tonight, he could be in the lineup for the Kings on Saturday.]
