Carter Hart owns the WHL.
On Wednesday afternoon the Western Hockey League announced their award winners for the 2017-18 season. Philadelphia Flyers goalie prospect Carter Hart was among the winners thanks to his historic season.
Carter Hart has been named the WHL Western Conference Goaltender of the Year. He was dominant enough this season to win the WHL Western Conference Player of the Year award as well.
Hart broke the Everett Silvertips franchise record for all-time wins earlier this season, tied the WHL all-time record with his 26th career shutout, and oh yeah, backstopped Team Canada to a gold medal at the World Junior Championships.
Hart finished the season with a 31-6-1-3 record, and a WHL-best (and CHL-best) .947 save percentage and 1.60 goals against average. He had seven shutouts, which was one more than his total regulation losses (6).
Here’s a highlight package of Hart’s great season via the WHL.
Hart was also named to the WHL Western Conference First All-Star Team.
Carter Hart went back to the WHL and dominated this season. He’ll turn pro next season as he looks to develop into the Flyers’ goalie of the future.
