Jeff Carter will likely miss the Columbus Blue Jackets' game Tuesday after re-aggravating a foot injury.
He is listed as day-to-day.
Carter bruised the same foot during training camp last month. He had surgery on that foot following his breakout year during the 2009-10 season with Philadelphia, where he collected 46 goals, 38 assists and was a plus-23 in 82 games.
Derick Brassard will likely replace Carter on the top line with R.J. Umberger and Rick Nash.
Brassard has no points and is a minus-one with two penalties and six hits through five games.
Most likely, Carter re-injured his right foot after blocking three shots in the Blue Jackets’ 4-2 loss in Dallas Saturday.
Carter currently leads the NHL in faceoff wins with 63. He leads his team in ice time among forwards at 19:54 and shots on goal at 20. He established a franchise record with 24 faceoff wins in the 3-2 season opener loss to the Nashville Predators.
However, Carter has collected no goals, three assists and was a plus-1 so far this season as Columbus is off to their worst start in franchise history at 0-4-1.
