“I feel like I want to be like him when I get older and I want to play for the Flyers just like him,” Brandon said.

Hart got a kick out of Brandon telling him why he likes being a goalie.

“He told me that his favorite thing about being a goalie is when the puck hits his pad and the feeling he gets when the puck hits his pad and makes a save, and I said, ‘That’s one of the reasons I became a goalie, too. Just the feeling of making a save, I love that, too,'” Hart said.
