Flyers general manager Ron Hextall spoke about goaltender Steve Mason's injury. "He’s out two to three weeks," he told the Flyers' website. "He’s been here for rehab. There’s not much of an update other than to say the timeline is the same."
"This was an acute injury which means it happened when it happened,"Hextall explained. "[There was no] previous injury, it was an injury that happened at that time. They can tell that when they go into the knee. It was pretty obvious. It’s not a big deal what he’s going through. It’s pretty routine."
Mason, 26, has put up impressive numbers for the Flyers going 11-12-7 with a 2.27 GAA and a .925 SV% in 34 games. Mason's goals against average and save percentage are at career high levels, topping his 2.29 GAA set in his Calder Trophy-winning 2008-09 season and better than his .917 SV% from last season.
