Prospect Of The Week: Mason McDonald

by Torie Peterson / Calgary Flames

Charlottetown Islander goaltender Mason McDonald was rock solid in both games he played last week.

McDonald, the Flames second round pick in 2014, backstopped his team to two victories, recording a 0.96 GAA and a .971 save percentage last week. The 19-year-old now holds a 16-14-3 record and has three shutouts in 33 appearances this season.

On Thursday, McDonald made 26 saves and stopped every shot in a shootout in the Islanders 3-2 win over Blainville-Boisbriand Armada. He held a 1.85 GAA and a .929 save percentage in that victory.

McDonald shut the door on Moncton Wildcats on Sunday, saving all 42 shots his opponents fired at him in a 1-0 Charlottetown win and collecting his third shutout of the year. He was named the game's first star in the tight victory.

In addition to his work with the Islanders, McDonald played two games for Canada at the 2016 World Junior Championship in Finland. In a pair of appearances, the Halifax product had a 2.52 GAA and a .861 save percentage.

The Flames inked McDonald to an entry-level deal on July 2, 2015.
