Hart is racking up the awards.
Philadelphia Flyers goalie prospect Carter Hart has been nearly unbeatable this season, and particularly in the past month. On Friday he was named the WHL Goaltender of the Month for the month of November.
Hart was out for the month of October with mono, but has returned with a bang. In the month of November he stopped 313 of the 326 shots he faced for a .960 save percentage, 1.29 goals against average, and a 7-2-0-1 record.
Hart recorded three shutouts in the month, including his record-setting 22nd last week, and also stopped all 20 shots he faced (including several early breakaways) to shutout Team Russia in the Super Series. He was named the first-star of the game four times throughout the month, while he was named the third star once as well.
Through the end of November, Hart led the WHL (and CHL) in goals against average (1.63) and save percentage (.951). He is also tied for the league lead with three shutouts. He celebrated the honors in the only way he knows how, by stopping 32 of the 33 shots he faced in a 3-1 win against the Kamloops Blazers on Friday night.
Hart is the top goalie prospect in the Flyers organization and one of the best in the entire league as well. He is dominating in his final junior season and it’s going to be fun to watch his progression with Everett this year and then his transition to the professional ranks next season.
Here’s a look at some of his best saves of the month.
