NEW YORK - Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Carter Hart, who went 6-2-1 with a 2.33 goals-against average and .931 save percentage in nine appearances, has been named the NHL's "Rookie of the Month" for January.

Hart edged St. Louis Blues goaltender Jordan Binnington (5-1-1, 1.57 GAA, .936 SV%, 1 SO), Arizona Coyotes right wing Conor Garland (7-1-8 in 11 GP), Buffalo Sabres defenseman Rasmus Dahlin (1-7-8 in 10 GP) and Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Marcus Pettersson (0-8-8 in 11 GP) for the honor.

Hart, who led the entire NHL in saves (283) and ranked third in time on ice (540:13) during January, won five straight games to close the month (2.38 GAA, .930 SV%). In doing so, the 20-year-old Sherwood Park, Alta., native became the 10th goaltender in League history to post a five-game winning streak prior to his 21st birthday - and the first to achieve the feat since Carey Price from March 20 - April 5, 2008 (7-0-0 w/ MTL).

A second-round selection (48th overall) by Philadelphia in the 2016 NHL Draft, Hart has compiled an 8-5-1 record, 2.48 goals-against average and .922 save percentage in 14 total outings since making his League debut with a win Dec. 18 (vs. DET: 20 SV). He joins Vancouver Canucks center Elias Pettersson (October and December) and Dahlin (November) as a Rookie of the Month winner in 2018-19.
