The Flyers announced starting goaltender Steve Mason broke his right pinky finger on Sunday playing hockey. General manager Ron Hextall said in a statement, "Steve Mason broke his right pinky finger playing hockey in Oakville, Ontario on Sunday, July 27. Mason will miss approximately two (2) weeks of on-ice training but will continue with his off-ice training."
The injury doesn't sound serious and it is important to note that Mason is left handed so the injury is to his glove hand, not stick hand, making it a little easier to recover.
Mason posted a 1.97 GAA and a .939 SV% allowing eight goals on 131 shots against in a little over four games against the Rangers in the 2014 playoffs. The 25-year-old tied a career-high with 33 wins this season going 33-18-7 with a 2.50 GAA and a .917 SV%.
