In his first action of the camp, Flyers goaltending prospect Carter Hart shut the door against USA-Blue in Canada's first game at the four-nation, Summer Showcase being held in Plymouth, Michigan this week.

Hart, who backstopped Canada to a silver medal in the 2017 World Juniors as an 18-year-old, stopped all 19 shots he faced through more than 34 minutes of time in the crease (34:24) as Canada rode a 2-1 victory against the U.S. team. 

USA-White exacted a bit of revenge in the other split-squad game, taking an 8-2 win over Canada-Red. The Canadian and U.S. teams will now merge their split squads for the remaining games of the tournament.

As for the Swedish team, they were in action earlier during the camp and Flyers prospect, Linus Hogberg, has been active on the blue line.

Hogberg had a goal and an assist in his most recent outing, a Sweden's 4-3 loss to USA-White on Sunday. His tally came while the team was on the power play, while his assist was a primary helper at even strength.

Although he didn't register a point, Hogberg posted four shots on goal and was a plus-2 for Sweden in their 4-3 victory over USA-Blue on Saturday. The Swedes came back from an 0-2 deficit after the first period, as well as a 1-3 hole in the late in the second period, to score three unanswered goals for the win. Hogberg's four shots on goal tied for the team lead.

Sweden will now take on the United States in their final action of the Showcase on Wednesday, which will be broadcast live on the NHL Network at 4 p.m. ET.

Hart and Team Canada will get one final showdown at the tournament as they wrap things up with a game on Saturday at 7 p.m. ET. The game will also be broadcast live on the NHL Network.
