For the third straight season, Flyers’ elite goaltending prospect Carter Hart is the WHL Goaltender of the Year.

This time around, however, he’s also been named the best player in the entire league.

Hart put together a sensational season with the Everett Silvertips, leading the WHL in save percentage (.947), goals against average (1.60) and shutouts (seven). Not only were those numbers tops in the WHL, but they were also tops across all three leagues in the CHL (WHL, QMJHL and OHL).

Hart posted a fantastic 31-6-3 record and tied the WHL’s all-time shutout record held by Vancouver Giants goaltender Tyson Sexsmith (26). The 19-year-old netminder also led Team Canada to Gold at the 2018 World Junior Championships.

Hart has continued his super play into the postseason, posting a 12-13-1 record and .922 save percentage to lead the Silvertips into the WHL Championship Series.

The goaltender of the future for the Flyers.
