Immensely talented with a penetrating kick, when his body is right, he is one of the Power’s most valuable players. At just 23 years old, Hartlett has huge upside. Promoted to the leadership group in 2012 and continuing through into 2014, Hartlett is the consummate professional and will be a key cog in the Power’s midfield for years to come.

Background

  • Taken from West Adelaide at pick 4 in the 2008 NAB AFL Draft, Hartlett is Port Adelaide's highest ever draft selection.
  • He was a talented junior cricketer, but chose a career in football.
  • His older brother, Adam, played 11 games for Carlton between 2007 and 2009

Season by Season

Season by Season

Hartlett was free from injury for the first time in his career and only missed games through suspension in 2013. 

Playing 22 matches, including two finals, he was one of Port Adelaide's most damaging players in the early stages of the season, reaching a peak with his claiming of the Peter Badcoe VC Medal during ANZAC Round against West Coast at Football Park. 

Often attracting taggers thereafter, Hartlett struggled to have the same influence and impact on the game, but was consistently among the Power's better players and was rarely found short of 20 disposals. 

  • Hartlett started the season with a best on ground performance in the Power’s narrow win over the Saints in Round 1. He had 26 disposals and kicked a vital goal playing across half back
  • His early season form was solid, but he struggled to have the impact on games the coaches know he’s capable of. He continued to mix his time between half back and the midfield
  • His best performance of the year came in Round 10 against Carlton, when Hartlett received the three Brownlow votes for 26 disposals and three raking goals from outside 50m
  • Hartlett’s season was derailed in Round 12 when he suffered a hamstring tear, which kept him out until Round 19. He played two matches before being suspended for two weeks for contact with Hawthorn’s Cyril Rioli
  • Finished the season ranked sixth at the club for average disposals and fourth for total tackles
  • ‘Hammer’ overcame shoulder surgery to return to the Power side for Round 3 and was then able to string 16 consecutive games together – his best run in the AFL
  • In his most consistent year for the club to date, Hartlett finished seventh in the John Cahill Medal and was awarded the Gavin Wanganeen Medal as the club’s best rising talent
  • He spent more time in the midfield later in the year and this saw an increase in his productivity, including a 32 disposal game against St Kilda in Round 16
  • His season was cut short after Round 20 when he was forced to undergo for shoulder surgery
  • He finished the season fifth in total kicks for the club
  • Hartlett’s year was cruelled by injury, with hamstring and quad complaints restricting the talented midfielder to just four games
  • He missed the start of the season through injury, but worked his way back through the SANFL to play in the Power’s Round 5 win over the Saints before injury struck the following week
  • He managed two more games for the year, but it was decided after the break to rest him for the remainder of the year. Hartlett was sent to Europe for further treatment on his troublesome hamstring
