InGoal Radio Podcast Episode 39: Carter Hart

In this Episode of the InGoal Radio Podcast presented by The Hockey Shop Source for Sports , we sit down with Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Carter Hart for a lengthy chat that includes several never-before-heard stories, anecdotes and tips from the impressive 21-year-old puck stopper. From changing his stretching routine, to being cut from his local AAA team at age 15 despite almost making the WHL shortly before, Hart opens up about the mental tools he has developed with help from his Sports Psychologist John Stevenson, sharing some of the drills that helped him make the jump from Jr to the AHL to the NHL last season, and some of the tips and programs he still uses today. It’s hard not to be impressed with Hart’s approach, and willingness to share several tips we know goalies and goalie parents will be able to use themselves this season.

David is one of the founders of InGoal Magazine which he began in 2009. Of course he finds time for some goaltending of his own as well, and despite his age, clings desperately to the idea that some NHL team will call him to play for them - though in his mid-forties (OK, late 40s) it'll likely be for a practice when everyone else on their depth chart has the flu and the shooter tutor has gone in for repairs.
