Carter, 28, has appeared in seven games with the Panthers this season, collecting six penalty minutes. Now in his fifth NHL campaign, he split last year with Anaheim and Carolina before being acquired by Florida in February.
Carter, 6-2, 200 lbs., has 14 goals, 21 assists and 191 penalty minutes in 189 career NHL games. He'll head to Phoenix, where the Devils face the Coyotes on Thursday.
Carter will wear No. 20.
Never drafted, the White Bear Lake, Minn., native first signed with the Ducks as a free agent in 2006. He made his pro debut with Portland (AHL) in 2006-07.
After two seasons with Green Bay (USHL), Carter spent the next two with Minnesota State-Mankato (WCHA).
