Mason, acquired at the NHL Trade Deadline in exchange for Michael Leighton and a 2015 draft pick, made his Flyers debut Saturday against the Winnipeg Jets in relief of Ilya Bryzgalov. Mason stopped all nine shots he faced in the third period of the Flyers' 4-1 loss.
It will be Mason's first start since March 29, his second since March 1.
Very happy that old guy finally scored. It was great. You see the excitement on his face. I remember when I scored my first goal and it's just such a great feeling. Anytime you can help contribute to a team win it's a lot of fun.
