Exclusive Carter Hart hot stove interview from the 2020 WHL / Hockey Canada Goaltending Symposium
Carter Hart was one of the featured guests when the first WHL / Hockey Canada Goaltending Symposium presented by InGoal Magazine wrapped up with a two-part Hot Stove hosted by our own Daren Millard late last week. Thanks to InGoal’s role as a sponsor and host of the two-day event, we are able to share that interview exclusively with our Premium Members.
Hart talked about his mindset and approach heading back onto the ice with the Philadelphia Flyers this week, and some of his early focal points as he left his hometown of Sherwood Park, Alberta and entered the NHL’s return-to-play protocols after three months off the ice. The 21-year-old Flyers No. 1 talked about his experiences working with a variety of coaches over the years, and how some of them have shaped his game and his philosophy to multiple voices.
Hart also talked about some of the technical elements he’s added to his game over the past year (like a double seal, with a skate on each post when the puck goes behind the net), and some other elements he’s experimented with before deciding it wasn’t for him. He talks about his toughest moment in youth hockey, and he overcame it, his experiences in the WHL and why the hardest part about making the jump to pro might have been learning to pay bills.
Add in some of his off-ice and game preparation habits, and there’s something that every goalie, goalie coach and goalie parent can learn from this exclusive half hour with Hart long before the dying battery on his laptop prevented a proper goodbye:
