Not much of a surprise here as Carter Hart was named the WHL Goaltender of the Week.
Per the WHL press release:
“The 18-year-old Hart went 3-1 with a 1.07 goals-against average, .954 save percentage and one shutout as the Everett Silvertips advanced to the second round of the 2017 WHL Playoffs following a six-game series triumph over the Victoria Royals.
On Tuesday, March 28, Hart stopped all 25 shots sent his way in a 2-0 victory at Victoria, earning third-star honours for his play. He followed up by making 18 saves on Wednesday, March 29 in a 2-1 loss at Victoria before turning aside another 17 pucks in a 3-2 overtime win versus Victoria on Friday, March 31. Capping the weekend, Hart put forth a first-star performance by making 64 saves in a marathon game that set a WHL and CHL record for the longest game in history as the Silvertips squeezed out a 3-2 win in the fifth overtime after playing 151:36 of hockey.
To this point in the 2017 WHL Playoffs, Hart ranks second in GAA (1.58), fourth in SV% (.938), T-4th in wins (four) and T-2nd in shutouts (one).”
Hart earned the award three times during the regular season and was twice WHL Goaltender of the Month, earning the award in November and February. He was also the Western Conference Goaltender of the Year and is looking for his second consecutive WHL and CHL Goaltender of the Year awards.
