Scott Hartnell (born April 18, 1982) is a Canadianmarker professional ice hockey left winger who plays for the Philadelphia Flyers of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing career

Prior to entering the NHL, Hartnell played two seasons of Canadian Junior-A hockey for the Lloydminster Blazers of the Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL). He then spent two seasons playing for the Prince Albert Raiders of the Western Hockey League (WHL). In the 1999–2000 season, Hartnell was not only the captain of the Raiders, but he lead the team with 82 points and was named team MVP. He was also chosen to play for Bobby Orr in the Canadian Hockey League (CHL) Top Prospects Game.

Hartnell was the sixth overall pick in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft by the Nashville Predators. He is the only Jewish player to have been drafted by the Predators. Considered a gritty power forward at 6 feet 2 inches tall, the left winger was the youngest player in franchise history to play for the Predators. He was also the youngest player in the NHL in the 2000–01 season. Hartnell's first NHL game was played in Japanmarker against the Pittsburgh Penguins as part of a 2 game set planned by the NHL to raise international interest in the league. Hartnell has stated that this game marks his favorite NHL moment.

Through six seasons with the Predators, Hartnell played in 453 games, accumulating 93 goals and 118 assists. During the 2003–04 season, Hartnell had 3 game-winning goals, two of which occurred in overtime. In his first career playoff series in the against the Detroit Red Wings in 2004, he tied the team high with 3 points (1G, 2A). During the 2004–05 NHL lockout, he helped Vålerenga win the Norwegian Championship, scoring 12 goals in 11 playoff games.

In the 2005–06 NHL season, Hartnell accumulated a career high 25 goals and 23 assists, for a total of 48 points. Additionally, Hartnell scored his first career hat trick on February 4, 2006, in a game against the Chicago Blackhawks. The first two goals of the trifecta were scored against Adam Munro, with the final goal coming against Craig Anderson. The following season Hartnell continued to produce similar offensive numbers. He also set franchise records for career penalty minutes (461) and for the fastest two goals by an individual (23 seconds). All of this was despite a broken foot which resulted in Hartnell missing the entire month of March.

On June 18, 2007, Hartnell along with Kimmo Timonen were traded to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for a first-round pick previously acquired from Nashville for Peter Forsberg. Hartnell almost immediately signed a six-year contract worth $25.2 million.

In his first season with the Flyers, Hartnell was one of a series of five Flyers suspended for questionable on-ice hits. Specifically, Hartnell was suspended for two games as a result of a hit on Andrew Alberts of the Boston Bruins. Additionally, Hartnell's offensive production slowed initially. While he registered his first point as a Flyer in the home opener, his first goal (an empty net goal) did not come until the 16th game of the season. However, his scoring began to increase around mid-season. On January 8, 2007, in a game against the Atlanta Thrashers, Hartnell scored his 100th career goal. Two days later, Hartnell was credited with his first career natural hat trick. He scored three goals in a row in a 6–2 victory over the New York Rangers, all against Henrik Lundqvist. The first and third goals were at even strength, while the second was scored on the power play. He managed yet another hat trick on January 19, 2008, registering 3 goals, including the game winning goal, and an assist against Rick DiPietro of the New York Islanders.

The 2008-09 campaign was a successful one for Hartnell. Playing mostly on the left wing of Jeff Carter he posted a career high in all offensive categories scoring 30 goals and 30 assists for 60 points in 82 games. However, Hartnell also lead the league in minor penalties that season with 54. The season also saw him score two hat tricks within nine days of each other. First against the Carolina Hurricanes on December 11, 2008 and then against the Washington Capitals on December 20, 2008.

Player profile

Scott Hartnell is a gritty power forward who usually positions himself in close to the net and scores the majority of his goals off deflections and rebounds. He does also produce the occasional big hit and will fight if challenged. Though prone to taking minor penalties he is also a defensively sound player, capable of killing penalties and usually either plus or even at the end of most nights. He is however also considered one of the worst players on breakaways and has trouble scoring on penalty shots or in the shootout.

Hartnell is also known for his long, bushy hair. On March 26, 2009 the Flyers held "Hartnell Wig Night" where fans attending the game were given wigs resembling his hair. Hartnell has also displayed bizarre on-ice and off-ice behavior from time to time. He stole the glove off Rangers forward Chris Drury during a game on January 31, 2008. Another glove related incident happened on December 2, 2008, when Hartnell threw his glove at Tampa Bay Lightning forward Ryan Malone in an attempt to stop a breakaway, resulting in a penalty shot for Malone. Most recently Hartnell has been accused of biting the finger of Penguins defenceman Kris Letang in a scrum at the end of a game on October 8, 2009. However, no evidence was shown to substantiate that allegation and Hartnell was neither fined nor suspended.

A previous Penguins related incident showcased Hartnells good nature in an interaction with a Penguins fan taunting him with an orange wig and Flyers #19 jersey bearing the name "Fartsmell" in a game played in Pittsburgh on March 22, 2009. Hartnell autographed that jersey (signing it "To my biggest fan!! Your bud Scott Fartsmell 19") as well as giving his game-used stick to that fan.

Personal life

On March 26, 2009, during a game vs the Florida Panthers, the Flyers held a Scott Hartnell wig night. Hartnell's nickname is Bird Dogg.
