Hart will play at the 2019 IIHF World Championship for Team Canada, Dave Isaac of The Courier Post reports.
Playing for Team Canada should be nothing but a great experience for the 20-year-old, who finished 2018-19 in a slump but still played very well during the season overall. As a rookie, Hart went 16-13-1 with a .917 save percentage and 2.83 GAA. He's viewed as the goaltender of the future in Philadelphia, and dynasty owners should definitely find a keeper spot for him on the roster.
Hart allowed four goals on 28 shots in Saturday's loss to the Hurricanes.
Hart finished a promising rookie campaign in a slump, allowing at least three goals in each of his last five appearances and producing an .891 save percentage in that span. The 20-year-old will end the season with a .917 save percentage, 2.83 GAA and 16-13-1 record. That's a large enough sample size to prove Hart could be the Flyers' starting goalie next season since Brian Elliott, Cam Talbot and Michal Neuvirth (lower body) are all scheduled to hit free agency this summer.
Hart replaced starter Brian Elliott just 6:58 into Thursday's game, stopping 27 of 30 shots in a 7-3 loss to St. Louis.
The loss will not impact Hart's record, which will remain at 16-12-1 following Thursday's defeat at the hands of the Blues. The rookie netminder will now turn his attention to Saturday, as Hart has already been announced as Philly's starter for its season finale versus the Hurricanes, who clinched a playoff spot with their win Thursday.
Hart was named the starter for Saturday's regular-season finale against the Hurricanes, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
To be clear, the Flyers have two games to play before the curtain closes on the 2018-19 campaign, but it appears that Hart will follow Cam Talbot and Brian Elliott with every Flyers netminder getting at least one more start before it's all said and done. It's been a carousel all year long for the Flyers, as they've already set an NHL record by deploying eight goalies over the course of the season. Hart will be saved for a Hurricanes team that has a white-knuckled grip on a wild-card spot out of the Eastern Conference, whereas the Flyers may as well book that tee time since they'll be golfing during the Stanley Cup playoffs.
Hart stopped 22 of 25 shots in Sunday's 3-0 loss to the Rangers.
This was actually the lowest shot volume the rookie has faced in seven starts since recovering from a lower-body injury, but the Flyers defense still gave up plenty of quality chances. Hart's 2.69 GAA and .926 save percentage over that stretch are fairly solid as he positions himself to be Philly's No. 1 netminder for the foreseeable future.
Hart will tend the home twine in Sunday's game versus the Rangers, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Hart is having a solid stretch with a .940 save percentage and 2.36 GAA over the last five games, although he only recorded three wins in that span due to lacking offensive support. The Rangers provide a favorable opportunity as they've lost seven of the last nine games while producing dismal offense. Both teams are out of playoff contention, so Hart is looking to finish out his rookie campaign on a high note.
Hart stopped 38 of 42 shots in regulation and overtime, and all five shootout attempts he faced, in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Maple Leafs.
The rookie stood tall in his first NHL shootout to earn his 16th win. Hart now has a 2.64 GAA and .931 save percentage while starting six of the last eight games, and he should see the bulk of the work in net for the Flyers as they cling to extremely faint playoff hopes.
Hart will be between the pipes at home versus the Maple Leafs on Wednesday, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com reports.
Hart will no doubt be looking for some help from his defensemen, as he faced 40 or more shots in three of his previous four outings. Despite the heavy workload, the youngster allowed a mere eight goals in those contests for a .949 save percentage. A matchup with Toronto's star-studded offense probably won't help the netminder's numbers, as the Leafs are averaging 33 shots (sixth highest in the league) and converting at a rate of 3.57 goals per game (second most).
Hart stopped 36 of 40 shots in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Islanders.
The rookie made some big saves but finally buckled in the third period, when Josh Bailey beat Hart twice in 83 seconds to put the game away. The 20-year-old has started five of the last six games, posting a 2-3-0 record with a strong 2.41 GAA and .937 save percentage, and the Flyers will continue to roll with Hart as their No. 1 as they evaluate him for next season and beyond.
Hart will take the home cage Saturday against the Islanders, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Hart has displayed a dominant form in the crease again recently, allowing two or fewer goals in each of the last three games. While the Islanders don't light up the opposition on the road (2.64 goals per game) they allow just 2.42 goals per game (third in NHL), so Hart will need to be sharp again to pick up his 16th win.
Hart made 40 saves in Thursday's 3-1 win over Chicago.
Hart was spectacular in this one, shutting the door completely after Erik Gustafsson opened the scoring for the hosts 10:39 into the opening frame. If only the 20-year-old kid had been born a decade earlier, maybe the Flyers could have won the 2010 Stanley Cup over the Blackhawks instead of suffering a defeat due in large part to shoddy goaltending. Finding the right netminder has been a never-ending challenge for the Flyers, but the answer they've long been searching for seems to have finally arrived in Hart.
Hart will start in goal Thursday night against host Chicago, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Hart will square off against a Blackhawks team that ranks 12th in the league offensively at 3.35 goals per game. The rookie is 14-10-1 with a 2.73 GAA and .919 save percentage through 25 contests.
Hart made 33 saves but allowed two goals in a 3-1 loss to Montreal on Tuesday.
On this night, following a 41-save win, Hart was outdueled by Carey Price, with the Canadiens' netminder turning in a near-perfect performance. The loss drops Hart's record to 14-10-1, but overall, he's been solid in this his first season in the NHL. Expect the 20-year-old to see the bulk of starts so long as Philly remain mathematically alive in the playoff hunt.
Hart will guard the cage at home versus Montreal on Tuesday, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Hart is coming off a 41-save victory over the Penguins on Sunday and will look to keep the momentum going against the Canadiens. The Flyers will need all the points they can get if they are going to make the playoffs and figure to ride the 20-year-old to get there, though the club could still give some starts to Brian Elliott.
Hart allowed just one goal on 42 shots in Sunday's 2-1 overtime win over the Penguins.
Hart made 26 saves over the first two periods before Pittsburgh's Teddy Blueger beat him early in the third period. Hart then did enough to keep the Flyers in this one until James van Riemsdyk scored with 18 seconds left in the third period. Hart improved to 14-9-1 with a 2.76 GAA and a .918 save percentage. The rookie will likely split time with Brian Elliott over the last three weeks of the season.
Hart will start in goal Sunday against host Pittsburgh, Dave Isaac of the Courier Post reports.
Hart returned from a lower-body injury Thursday and ended up stopping 27 of 31 shots in a 5-2 home loss to the Capitals. The 20-year-old will hope to round into form against a Penguins team that's ranked ninth in the NHL in home scoring at 3.42 goals per game. A divisional win against the rival Pens would be a huge morale booster for Hart, but the Flyers still need a miracle to wind up in the postseason.
Hart made 27 saves in a 5-2 loss to Washington on Thursday. He allowed four goals.
It was a tough way to get back in action following injury. Hart did all he could, but the Capitals were absolutely electric at times. He remains a great long-term option; his short-term game may need a couple games to get back in focus. The good news? Hart wasn't pulled, which was a nice change given his previous two games prior to injury.
Hart will start in goal Thursday evening against the visiting Capitals, John Boruk of NBC Sports reports.
After missing seven consecutive games with a lower-body injury and dressing as the backup to Brian Elliott in Monday's win over the Senators, Hart will finally get back to work for a Flyers club desperately clinging onto its playoff hopes. This figures to be a tall order for the rookie, as the Capitals have reeled off seven straight wins and almost assuredly will wind up in the postseason.
Hart will back up Brian Elliott against the Senators on Monday, Dave Isaac of the Courier Post reports.
This is another step in the right direction for Hart, as he's now healthy enough to dress. A Flyers team that's hanging on to slim playoff hopes despite a steep uphill climb remaining can't risk rust from the rookie against the league's worst team, so they're sticking with Elliott, who has come up victorious four times in his past six starts. Hart had been rolling before getting hurt and is likely to take back the No. 1 job soon enough.
Hart has overcome his lower-body injury, but he won't dress for Saturday's game against the Islanders, Dave Isaac of the Courier Post reports.
Isaac added that it wouldn't surprise him if Hart ended up starting in Monday's home game against the Senators. The rookie netminder will miss a seventh straight contest Saturday, with countless owners clamoring for Hart to return soon in order to help with the fantasy playoffs. Once the 20-year-old does return to action, he should regain the No. 1 position on the Flyers' depth chart in short order -- if not right away.
