by Philadelphia Flyers @NHLFlyers / philadelphiaflyers.com

There are times during the summer months that players will fly into town for a few days and check in with teammates, get a skate in on their own and take care of some personal business. For Flyers goaltender Carter Hart, that was last week... and what a packed couple of days it was for him. 

Before he departed for Alberta for the rest of the summer, PhiladelphiaFlyers.com caught up with him for a quick Q & A.

MELTZER'S 411: About the College Kids

Flyers contributor's thoughts on the growing number of prospects choosing college

by Bill Meltzer @BillMeltzer / philadelphiaflyers.com

The times, they are a-changing: Historically and until recently, the majority of North American Flyers prospects developed via one of the three Canadian major junior leagues (OHL,WHL, QMJHL) before turning professional. While the CHL is still a key source of talent not only for the Flyers and for teams leaguewide, more and more young players go the NCAA route before turning pro. The majority are American-born players but this is hardly exclusive.

Hart of gold

Carter Hart meets a big fan during his quick visit back to Philly

by PhiladelphiaFlyers.com @NHLFlyers

Carter Hart took a break from his summer vacation and returned to Philly for a few days to skate on his own, as well as work out at the team's training facility in Voorhees.

In that short window, he made time for a very special guest he was determined to extend his stay on the ice for.

Meet Brandon Hull, a nine-year-old goalie, who suffered an accident that required multiple surgeries and a partial foot amputation. His favorite player - Carter Hart of course.

Hull walked into the Flyers locker room where he was met by Hart, who found out about his story and invited him on the ice on Wednesday afternoon.

Flyers fans saw first-hand last week just how good some of the prospects the club has during their annual Development Camp. If you weren't able to get out to the Skate Zone for a little summer hockey -- or just want to re-live some of the action -- we've got you covered.

Check out the Top 5 plays from the 3-on-3 tournament and the 5-on-5 scrimmage below:

Video: Top plays from this year's Development Camp

5. Separated for the 3-on-3 tournament, the Cates brothers were re-united for the scrimmage and showed off their chemistry. Watch Noah and Jackson connect for a give-and-go tally:

4. With action in close quarters, Emmett Sproule beats Felix Sandstrom in the 3-on-3 tournament but finds the post. Carson Briere looks to grab the rebound, but Egor Zamula swipes it away at the last second:

3. Fresh off of being selected in the second round in June, Bobby Brink shows off his hockey sense with a nice poke check on Jack St. Ivany, then goes the other way to hit a cutting Isaac Ratcliffe for a goal:

2. Fourth Round pick in this year's draft, Mason Millman receives a long stretch pass in the 3-on-3 tourney and snaps a beauty top-shelf (slow-mo): 

1. Development Camp certainly had some head-turning plays and this was no exception: No-look, behind the back pass, backhand saucer across the crease and going top-shelf (on the backhand again) for the scrimmage's prettiest play:
