Jeff Carter might not be available for Team Canada at the World Cup of Hockey.

The Kings forward reportedly suffered a lower-body injury during his off-season training.

Whether or not he’ll be able to play in the World Cup still hasn’t been determined.

Carter was a key part of Team Canada’s squad that won gold at the 2014 Olympics. The 31-year-old had three goals and two assists in six tournament games.

Here’s everything we know about Carter’s injury situation:

Carter’s been relatively healthy over the last two years, as he’s missed just five games during that time. All five came last season when he was out because of an upper-body injury.

He scored 24 goals and 62 points in 77 games with Los Angeles in 2015-16.
