Player Bio

At A Glance

Junior Clubs: Edwardstown
Clubs:
Port Adelaide (2006 National Draft, Pick 86)
Debut:
2009
Recruited From:
West Adelaide
Sponsors: Atlas Chiropractic, Jim's Handyman

Highly regarded and respected within the playing group and football department for his professionalism and team-first mentality, Hartlett was first elevated to the club's leadership group in 2012 at the age of 21 and in 2019 was named vice-captain to co-captains Ollie Wines and Tom Jonas. 

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.

TIMELINE

2010

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.

2011

‘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 shoulder surgery. He finished the season fifth in total kicks for the club

2012

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.

2013

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.

2014

Hartlett took another step in his journey to become one of Port Adelaide’s most destructive midfielders. Standing up in crucial battles, his ball-winning ability was in full show on numerous occasions, particularly a 36-touch effort against St Kilda in Round 12, and 33 against Fremantle in a cut-throat Semi Final.

2015

Another relatively consistent year from Hartlett, who for the first time in his career played every game in a season. His best across half-back was again excellent - none more so than a 3-Brownlow vote performance in the wet against the Gold Coast - but he still had several quiet games throughout the year. Hartlett's leadership again shone and he was elevated to vice-captain at the end of the season.

2016

Battled to find his groove in 2016, eventually put back into a familiar half-back role to use his booming kick after spending the start of the year in the midfield. Explored options in the competition but decided to remain at Alberton for 2017.

2017

A leader from half-back, Hartlett played very consistent football in 2017. His damaging right boot was a real weapon for Port transitioning from defence.

2018

Hartlett started the season on fire with 23 touches against Fremantle in Round 1 before starring in the Power’s gutsy 23-point win over the Swans at the SCG in Round 2 – his 150th game. His season was restricted to only five games after the long-kicking backman suffered an ACL injury at training and required a knee reconstruction.
