Philadelphia Flyers goalie prospect Carter Hart is making a name for himself.
He had a great shutout streak back in November, was put on the world stage at the World Junior Championship in January, but he struggled a bit after that. However, it looks like he is now back on track yet again.
Last night Hart made 26 saves en route to a 4-2 win and first star of the game honors. The biggest of those saves came in the third period on the penalty kill.
Hart made a kick save, stayed square to the puck, and then reached back to make a fantastic glove stop.
The overhead look is amazing.
And here’s the call.
It was the third straight win for the Flyers farmhand, the two prior being shutout victories. He has now stopped 78 of the last 80 shots he’s faced.
Hart leads the league in goals against average (2.01), is second in save percentage (.925) and leads the league in shutouts with eight. Overall he is 22-7-6-1 over 39 games played. It looks like Hart may be well on his way to another WHL Goalie of the Year award.
