Mase is on the case.
Last week, Calgary Flames prospect Mason McDonald backstopped the Charlottetown Islanders to a first round series win over the Rimouski Océanic in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League Playoffs.
McDonald started his week with a 38-save performance in Charlottetown's 4-3 overtime win in Game 4. Two of the three goals he allowed came while the Océanic were on the power play and he ended up logging 66:31 of ice time in the victory while posting .927 save percentage.
The Islanders and McDonald stumbled a bit in Game 5, falling 5-4 in overtime, but they bounced back in a decisive Game 6. McDonald made 41 saves on 43 shots in the series-clinching victory, posting a 2.00 GAA and a .953 save percentage. He was named the game's second star for his efforts.
The 19-year-old wraps up the first round with a 4-1 record, a 2.72 GAA, and .922 save percentage. In the regular season, McDonald went 21-15-3 with a 3.33 GAA and a .902 save percentage.
In addition to his work in the QMJHL this year, McDonald played two games for Canada at the 2016 IIHF World Junior Championship, posting a 2.52 GAA and .861 save percentage.
McDonald was the Flames second round pick in the 2014 NHL Draft. He signed an entry-level deal with the club on Jul. 2, 2015.
