The Philadelphia Flyers granted goaltender Carter Hart an indefinite leave of absence for personal reasons, the team announced Tuesday.

The club won't comment further on the matter at this time.

Hart owns a 12-9-3 record this season to go along with a .906 save percentage and 2.80 goals against average.

The Flyers sit second in the Metropolitan Division after going 25-16-6 through the first half of the campaign.

Philadelphia selected Hart in the second round of the 2016 NHL Draft. He owns a career .906 save percentage and 2.94 goals against average across 227 contests.

Hart's 96 wins since his debut in the 2018-19 campaign are the 18th most among all goalies over that span.

He last played Saturday against the Colorado Avalanche. He was pulled after surrendering five goals on 15 shots en route to a 7-4 defeat.

The 25-year-old can become a restricted free agent with arbitration rights at the end of this season. Hart is currently playing out the final campaign of a three-year pact with a $3.979-million cap hit.
