UPDATE: Carter Hart named WHL Goaltender of the Month

Everett Silvertips goalie Carter Hart was named the WHL Goaltender of the Month, the league announced Tuesday. That comes on the heels of Monday’s announcement that Hart had won the Goaltender of the Week award.

This marks the fourth time in six months Hart was named the league’s goalie of the month. In March Hart went 9-2-0-1, with a 1.96 goals-against-average, .930 save percentage and one shutout. That includes a 5-2 regular-season record before he won four of five as Everett beat Seattle in five games to win the first-round playoff series.

Hart’s playoff performance earned him the WHL goalie of the week award for the sixth time this season and 15 times in his career. Hart capped the series with a 4-0 shutout in Game 5.

Last week Hart went 3-0-0 with a 1.33 goals-against average and a .960 save percentage. He was named the WHL’s Star of the Night for his 36-save shutout in Game 5 Saturday.

Hart leads all WHL goalies in postseason play with a 1.97 GAA and a .938 save percentage. He also led both categories during the regular season, after which he was named Western Conference Goaltender of the Year for the third straight season and also earned Western Conference Player of the Year honors.

The Philadelphia Flyers prospect also won WHL Goaltender of the Month awards this season in November, December and January as the Tips won their second-straight U.S. Division title and earned their second consecutive top seed in the Western Conference playoffs.

In 32 career playoff games Hart is 15-12-5 with a 2.30 GAA and a .924 save percentage. The Silvertips open second-round play on Saturday at home against either the Portland Winterhawks or the Spokane Chiefs.
