Philadelphia Flyers sign Carter Hart to 3-year contract extension

The Philadelphia Flyers have re-signed goaltender Carter Hart to a three-year contract extension worth an average annual value (AAV) of $3.979M, according to President of Hockey Operations & General Manager Chuck Fletcher.

The contract will run through the 2023-24 season.

Hart appeared in 27 games while starting 25 of them last season (2020-21) and posted a 9-11-5 record to go along with a 3.67 goals-against average and .877 save percentage.

Over parts of three seasons with the Flyers, Hart has posted a 49-37-9 record with two shutouts and a 2.88 GAA and .905 sv. pct. in 101 games played.

In his first full season in the NHL, 2019-20, he made 40 starts and appeared in 43 games to post a 24-13-3 record, 2.42 GAA and .914 save percentage – His 24 wins T-9th among all NHL goalies, while his 2.42 GAA finished 8th.

On home ice, he posted a 20-3-2 record with a 1.63 GAA and a .943 save percentage, which tied him for the NHL lead among goalies.

He appeared in his first Stanley Cup Playoffs in the NHL’s Toronto Bubble, and started all six games of the first round series vs. Montreal where he recorded two consecutive shutouts (Game 3 & 4) to become the youngest goaltender in Flyers history, and second-youngest in NHL history, to record consecutive playoff shutouts.

In his rookie season in 2018-19, Hart became the second-youngest goaltender in Flyers history to appear in a game AND the youngest goalie in Flyers history to win a game.

He went a perfect 8-0-0 from Jan. 14-Feb. 9, which tied an NHL record for consecutive games won by a goaltender before his 21st birthday.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
