Despite no official word from the team, it appears that Steve Mason is alright following his upper-body injury over the weekend. Mason was pulled from the Penguins game and held out of Sunday's regular season finale. There was fear he might have a concussion but today it sounds like the goaltender is good to go.
Reports from The Courier-Post's Dave Isaac and NHL.com's Adam Kimelman are the goaltender is out on the ice ready for Flyers practice on Tuesday morning.
The injury happened in the second period of the Flyers' 4-3 overtime victory over the Penguins on Saturday. Pittsburgh forward Jayson Megna drove Flyers defenseman Andrew MacDonald hard into Mason. The 25-year-old netminder finished out the period but was replaced by Ray Emery to start the third period.
Philadelphia recalled goaltender Cal Heeter from Adirondack Saturday night and he made his first NHL start on Sunday against the Hurricanes.
Mason had a career year for the Flyers in 2013-14 tying a career-high with 33 wins en route to a 33-18-7 with a 2.50 GAA and a career-high save percentage of .917. He earned a three-year, $12.3 million contract extension in January.
