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

Carter Hart has all of the tools be an NHL starter some day, though that will be many years away yet, and is a solid bet to be an effective pro. Hart has a good chance to be the top net-minder selected in the 2016 draft, and may slip into the late first round.
