The 37-year-old Carter has 12 goals and 14 assists in 36 games this season for the Penguins, his second after arriving in a trade from the Los Angeles Kings last April.
Carter began his career with the Philadelphia Flyers, being selected No. 11 overall in the 2003 NHL Draft. He was dealt to the Columbus Blue Jackets in the summer of 2011 and then traded again less than one year later to the Kings, where he went on to play 10 seasons.
For his career, Carter has 411 goals and 377 assists in 1,130 regular season games.
The London, Ont., native was in the final year of an 11-year, $58 million contract he signed in the fall of 2010.
