Future Watch: Carter Hart Rookie Hockey Cards, Flyers

Future Watch: Carter Hart Rookie Hockey Cards, FlyersCarter Hart was drafted by the Philadelphia Flyers with the 48th overall pick in 2016. At the time the pick was thought of as an adept one and soon we’ll all see just how far he’s come.

His four full seasons with the Everett Silvertips were pretty stellar. He went from playing 30 games to 63 and 54 in 2016-17. His save percentage never dipped below .915 and was as high as .947 in his last season. In the playoffs, he was twice as high as .929. He never won a Memorial Cup.

Hart had a few other accolades along the way. He played in four games in the 2016-17 World Junior Championship for Canada. That year his team won the Silver medal. The next year he was the full-time starter and he had a .181 GAA and an eye-popping .930 leading Canada to a gold medal. His second, he won his first in the Hlinka Memorial in 2015-16.

Here he is right after his 2018 WJC win:

Hart was a two-time WHL Goalie of the Year winner, 2015-16 and 2017-18 CHL Goaltender of the Year, WHL Player of the Year as well.

He turned 20 in August, so he started out his year in Flyers training camp and eventually the Lehigh Valley Phantoms. Like most prospects, especially goalies, he started out slow and had been hot of late. He was 4-1 with a 1.80 GAA and a .930 save percentage in his last five AHL games.

Carter Hart will be rushed into a future Upper Deck NHL product. For now, you can find cards of him in 2017 Upper Deck CHL, 2018-19 Canada Juniors, and 2016-17 Leaf Metal to name a few.

Here he is in action:

He will get his first NHL start against the Detroit Red Wings. You never know how that will go. The Flyers are struggling as a team. The collecting world should certainly be tracking this talented netminder.

Look for Carter Hart’s Upper Deck Young Guns rookie card in 2018-19 Series 2 Hockey.  On Tuesday evening, Hart made his NHL debut in net against the Red Wings. He made 22 stops and helped Philadelphia to a 3-2 win. Check out some post game videos and an interview with Russ Cohen!
