He began his OHL career in 2001-02, scoring 35 points in 63 games as a rookie. He rose to 71 points in the ensuing season. In the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, the Philadelphia Flyers selected him 11th overall in the off-season.

He earned his second Team OHL All-Star accolades in 2003–04, after returning to the Greyhounds following his draft. He was assigned by the Flyers to their American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Philadelphia Phantoms, for their 2005 Calder Cup playoff season, marking his third OHL appearance. In his first game at the professional level, he gained five points out of a total of 12 games.

Carter ruled the Flyers' roster out of training camp for the next season, 2005-2006. Mike Richards and R. J. Umberger, both rookies who were also instrumental in the Phantoms' Calder Cup championship of the previous season, were joined by him. On October 27, 2005, he scored his first NHL goal against the Florida Panthers' Roberto Luongo. He finished first in team-scoring among rookies with 23 goals and 42 points.

Carter became one of the first two players (the other being his colleague Mike Richards) in history to play in two franchises (the Philadelphia Flyers in 2010). Carter and Drew Doughty were the seventh and eighth NHL players to win both an Olympic ice hockey gold medal and the Stanley Cup in the same year when the Kings defeated the New York Rangers in 5 games in the 2014 Stanley Cup Finals.

Carter was named the NHL First Star of the Week for October 20–26 after scoring two goals and four assists in just two games early in the 2014-15 season. During their season-opening homestand, the reigning Stanley Cup champions maintained a perfect 6–0 record. Carter scored in a 5–3 win over the Kings on February 15, 2015, beating the Calgary Flames in a three-assist performance. Carter spent the majority of the season with Tanner Pearson and Tyler Toffoli, with the line being dubbed "That '70s Line" since the three teams had jersey numbers in the 1970s.

Carter and teammate Drew Doughty were named in his second All-Star game appearance in the 2016–17 season. He appeared in all 82 games for the Kings, finishing the season as the team's top scorer with 32 goals and 66 points.

Carter was traded by the Kings to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for a conditional 2022 third-round draft pick and a 2021 fourth-round draft pick on April 11, 2021, on the eve of the 2021 trade deadline. In an 8–4 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on May 6, 2021, he played his first four-goal game in his career. Carter praised the trade for reigniting his goalscoring and prolonging his career since joining the Penguins.

Carter will play a bigger role as a center for the Penguins in 2021-22 seasons after a few seasons of point production diminished since 2017-18, with a total of 19 goals, 26 assists, and 45 points in 76 games.
