A Sophomore Slump For Carter Hart?

from Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer,

Carter Hart seemed so unflappable, so mentally strong, in his rookie season and the first couple months of 2019-20 that it was easy to forget he was barely 21 and there would be growing pains along his path to becoming an All-Star goaltender.

The growing pains, which have escalated on the Flyers’ disastrous road trip, are real and sometimes difficult to watch.

Like the first-period goal that Brad Richardson scored Saturday in Arizona, a shot from distance that hopped past Hart and changed the complexion of the game.

Like the four first-period goals he allowed — not all of them were his fault, mind you — in the Flyers’ 5-4 loss in Vegas on Thursday.

Like his last seven road starts, which all turned into losses.

All Carter Hart

from Adam Kimelman of NHL.com,

It's every kid's dream to play in the NHL, but once you got here, when did it sink in that you're actually an NHL player?

"Maybe a month in, just kind of realized that these guys are human too. It's playing against some of my idols, but they're all human too, just like you and I. That's when I realized that I'm in the NHL and I belong here too."

What's been the biggest adjustment you've had to make in the past year?

"Taking care of my body has been a big part of my game. Making sure I'm getting enough sleep, eating the right things. Because we've played a lot of hockey lately, we played 16 games in 30 days in November, it's a lot of quick turnarounds on a lot of nights. So I think it's really important that you try to recover the best you can so that you can perform again in a short turnaround.

First NHL Game, First NHL Win For Carter Hart

from Sam Carchidi of Philly.com,

New coach. New goalie. New result.

Carter Hart, the 20-year-old goalie who the Flyers hope will one day be a franchise cornerstone, stopped 20 of 22 shots in his NHL debut Tuesday night, sparking a crisp 3-2 win over Detroit at the energized Wells Fargo Center.

“I had a blast tonight,” Hart said after becoming the youngest goalie in Flyers history to win his NHL debut -- and the youngest in the league to win his debut since Carey Price in 2007. “It was a night I’ll never forget.”

“He’s got ice in his veins,” left winger James van Riemsdyk said. “He’s very poised and tracks the puck real well.”
