Carter Hart, who is among the five players facing a charge of s****l a*****t linked to the 2018 Team Canada junior scandal, might return to play soon.

Technically, the 25-year-old goalie has been officially removed from the Philadelphia Flyers' roster, meaning in a way that he has been sidelined from professional hockey in North America, at least until the end of the trial, presumably.

However, a quite astonishing rumor erupted on Twitter today regarding Hart's possible signing with a KHL club in Russia.

"The account Hockey News Hub, which has just under 8,000 followers, shared a publication with the goalie's name, including an emoji of the Russian flag and an emoji of a questioning smiley.


It then replied to its own post saying that there's nothing concrete at the moment... But that it also heard whispers indicating that the goalie might join Ak Bars Kazan." - via DLC



It's important to note that the mentioned account is not known for sharing false rumors; it was one of the first to report the news that Alex Galchenyuk had signed a contract in the KHL following the huge controversy involving him.

Although all this might never officially materialize, it's often said that there's rarely smoke without fire, implying that something could potentially be happening behind the scenes.

Since Hart is awaiting trial for a criminal act, it would be really astonishing if he could continue his career as if nothing happened in Russia, a country with no extradition treaty with Canada, let's remember.

This will be a contentious case to closely watch over the coming days.
