December 2017 – The reputation of Carter Hart continues to build in size and momentum, much like a snowball making it’s way down a mountain side. There’s him and everyone else on the WHL circuit when it comes to goaltending as he continues to be a firewall for the Everett Silvertips as the season progresses. He will backstop Team Canada in the upcoming WJC. It’s hard to see him learn much more next year in the WHL when he is still eligible to play there for one more season before electing to turn pro.

May 2017 – Hart makes his already-sterling reputation even more impressive with his second straight CHL Goaltender of the Year Award. He seems to be the goalie prospect the Flyers have been seeking for quite some time. He is still expected to report the WHL for his last year of eligibility. Considering how far ahead of the curve he is, he would do well to build his body to better handle the professional game when he gets the call up to the show. Edric Joseph

April 2017 – In light of the recent injury sustained by Anthony Stolarz, Carter Hart has been reassigned to the Lehigh Valley Phantoms for their postseason run at the Calder Cup. After his stellar year for the Silvertips of the WHL, he is looking like a nice piece to rebuild around for Philadelphia going forward. Edric Joseph

January  2017 - Carter Hart's showing in the finals at the World Juniors shouldn't take much away from him, he was terrific throughout the tournament which shouldn't come as a big surprise as he's been a firewall for the Everett Silvertips. Edric Joseph

June 2016 - Hart was selected by the Philidelphia Flyers in the second round of the 2016 NHL Draft. He was the first goaltender selected.

March 2016 –Carter Hart is an exceptionally agile goaltender with an elite level glove hand who is capable of shutting down the opposition on any given night. Blessed with quick feet and the ability to go post-to-post in an instant, Carter is an outstanding athlete with elite hand-eye coordination. He is calm and cool under pressure, and has the competitiveness of a starter who wants to play every night.

Though he doesn’t have the prototypical size that most teams often look for in goalies these days, Hart makes up for his slight stature by utilizing excellent positioning and the ability to recover his feet quickly. He could stand to challenge defenders a little more but Hart’s rebound control is high-end, and he is adept at anticipating the play. His stickhandling could use some refinement but that’s splitting hairs. – Aynsley Scott


Fantasy Outlook: B

Hart has all of the tools be an NHL starter someday, though that will be a few years away yet, and is a solid bet to be an effective pro.
