Scott Hartnell is a Canadian winger on the Philadelphia Flyers.
Hartnell was drafted 6th overall in 2000 by the Nashville Predators. Hartnell played six seasons with Nashville, beginning immediately after being drafted. He was the youngest player in the league in the 2000-01 season. In 2005-06, Hartnell set career highs with 25 goals and 48 points. Hartnell probably would have put up similar numbers in 2006-07, but missed an entire month with a broken foot. He finished the season with 22 goals and 39 points.
In 2007, Hartnell was traded to the Philadelphia Flyers along with Kimmo Timonen. Hartnell’s physical play and fiery personality have made him a fan favorite in Philadelphia.
Hartnell played for Team Canada at the 2006 World Championships.
