"Everybody knows that goaltenders are a bit of a strange breed. You have to have something wrong with you to not only stand in the way of blistering slap shots, but also to take on the pressure that comes with playing the position.
The Flyers top goaltending prospect Carter Hart definitely has his own quirks. Hart has a superstition where he has to be the last player off the ice before every game and prior to every intermission and he proved that he will wait as long as it takes to do so.
Prior to Tuesday's World Junior Championship opener for Team Canada, he waited nearly two minutes for Finland's backup net minder to leave the ice before he headed back to the locker.

It is hard to argue with the superstition while Hart is putting up huge numbers. He made 29 saves in 4-2 win over Finland and currently leads the Western Hockey League with a 1.32 goals-against average, .961 save percentage and five shutouts.
Be as weird as you want to be, Carter!!"
