At the completion of the 2002–03 season, Carter played for Team Canada in the 2003 World Championships. Over 14 minutes into the first overtime of the gold medal game against Sweden, Carter beat Swedish goaltender Mikael Tellqvist with a wraparound goal. The goal was contested for several minutes before replays confirmed that Tellqvist had stopped the puck behind the goal line. It was Canada's first World Championship win in five years.
Lasting half a season with the Rangers, he was traded back to the Capitals on January 23, 2004, for Jaromír Jágr. His second go with the Capitals was even more short-lived than his stint with New York, as he was flipped to the Los Angeles Kings for Jared Aulin just over a month later on March 8, 2004.
On August 16, 2005, Carter signed a one-year deal with the Vancouver Canucks as an unrestricted free agent.

He set a new career high in goals with 33, leading the team, and earned the Canucks' Most Exciting Player Award. However, he did not re-sign with the Canucks at the end of the season due to a contract dispute.
On September 13, 2006, Carter signed a one-year deal with the Columbus Blue Jackets, but was traded once again to the Carolina Hurricanes on February 23, 2007, for a fifth-round pick in the 2008 draft.
