"He's a young goaltender that's had some success in the League," Laviolette said. "I'm sure he's looking to get here and get going with us. Fresh start for him. We're excited. He's a big goaltender that's had a lot of success in the League."
Mason said he planned to arrive in Philadelphia sometime Wednesday evening and hopefully meet the team after its game against the Montreal Canadiens, then fly with the club to Toronto for its game against the Maple Leafs on Thursday.
Laviolette wouldn't say whether Mason would start -- and he refused to commit to a goaltender rotation beyond Wednesday's game. After they play the Canadiens the Flyers will have 12 games left; Bryzgalov will start for the 34th time in 36 games Wednesday.
"I've coached Adam I think for a couple [USA Hockey] tournaments," he said. "Good kid, good checking forward. He's big, he's strong, he's fast, kills penalties. Again, we'll utilize him to our advantage with his strengths and what he brings to the table."
Hall will join the team in time for the game Thursday in Toronto.
