Flyers GM Ron Hextall isn't ruling out the possibility of re-signing goaltender Steve Mason, who can become an unrestricted free agent this summer.
"Obviously, Steve Mason is still an option for us but we’re going to look around and see what else is out there," Flyers GM Ron Hextall said Wednesday on NHL Radio. "In the end we’ll decide what our best option is." That being said, we would be a little surprised if Mason does end up back in Philadelphia. The Flyers have already signed Michal Neuvirth to a two-year, $3.25 million contract and while you might argue that Philadelphia can simply continue to go with the same tandem of Neuvirth and Mason that they've had in the past, Mason might pass on that. Mason argued recently that goaltending platoons don't work, so he might want to avoid getting into one if he can at all avoid it. Mason had a 2.66 GAA and .908 save percentage in 58 games in 2016-17.

Steve Mason doesn't believe that goalie platoons can work in the NHL.

Mason has split the starting job with Michal Neuvirth the last couple of years, but he isn't interested in doing that again. "It doesn’t work. It’s shown throughout the league that it doesn’t work," Mason said. "Tampa got rid of their situation (with Ben Bishop and Andrei Vasilevskiy). St. Louis got rid of their situation (with Jake Allen and Brian Elliott). It’s got nothing to do with Neuvy and I as people. I’ve got no issue with Neuvy. It just doesn’t work for the goaltending position."

Steve Mason topped Sergei Bobrovsky in Saturday's 4-2 matinee win.

Mason, in what might be his last with the Flyers after being acquired from Columbus in 2013, stopped 20 of 22 shots in the effort. The victory lifts his record to 26-21-8 with a 2.66 GAA and a .908 save percentage this season.
Apr 8 - 5:05 PM

Steve Mason's projected start on Saturday could be his last for the Flyers.

Mason is approaching the end of his three-year, $12.3 million deal with the Flyers. He was pretty good in the first two seasons of that contract, but he's been less effective in 2016-17 with a 2.67 GAA and .908 save percentage in 57 games.
Apr 8 - 10:28 AM

Steve Mason will be in net on Saturday against Columbus.

He's posted a 3-4-4 record in 11 games against his original club, posting a .914 save percentage and a 2.62 GAA as well.
Apr 7 - 8:25 PM

Steve Mason is finishing the 2016-17 campaign on a high note.

Mason has posted a 9-5-2 record with a 2.15 GAA, and .933 save percentage in his last 16 games. Overall this season he hasn't been nearly as flattering with a 25-21-8 record, 2.67 GAA, and .908 save percentage in 57 contests. Still, it will be interesting to see if his strong finish is enough to entice the Flyers to re-sign him. Philadelphia already re-signed Michal Neuvirth though, so inking Mason as well could complicate things if they want to start the 2017-18 campaign with 23-year-old Anthony Stolarz on the roster. That being said, Neuvirth - or Mason for that matter if he re-signs prior to it - might end up being scooped up in the expansion draft.
Apr 6 - 10:52 AM

Steve Mason allowed one goal on 27 shots in 1-0 overtime loss to the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday.

Mason remains winless in 10 career starts vs the Devils despite only giving up one goal in this contest. The overtime loss breaks his four-game winning steak and his record now drops to 25-21-8 on the year with a 2.67 goals against average and .908 save percentage. It will be interesting to see what type of deal Mason is able to land during the off-season.
Apr 4 - 10:21 PM

Steve Mason will be in the crease Tuesday versus New Jersey.

Mason has gone 0-9-0 in his career against the Devils with an .852 save percentage and a 3.93 goals-against average. He has won each of his last four starts though.
Apr 4 - 2:41 PM

Steve Mason will dress Sunday as the backup goalie, as he has recovered from his illness.

He didn't play on Saturday because he wasn't feeling well. Anthony Stolarz will start against the New York Rangers.
Apr 2 - 5:54 PM

Steve Mason has been sidelined with an illness.

Anthony Stolarz has already been recalled, so Mason shouldn't be expected to dress Saturday night. His status for Sunday is unclear, though. Consider him day-to-day for now.
Apr 1 - 5:54 PM

Steve Mason stopped 38 of 41 shots in a 6-3 win over the New York Islanders on Thursday.

Mar 30 - 11:06 AM

Steve Mason stopped 26 of 28 shots in a 3-2 shootout win over the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday.

Mason has now won three straight, and is the first goaltender in Flyers history to start in 50+ games in four straight seasons with the team. He has also faced the most shootout attempts of any other goaltender in the NHL this season, stopping over 78% of them. The win improves his record to 24-21-7 on the year with a 2.70 goals against average and .907 save percentage. It will be interesting to see what kind of deal the inconsistent Mason will land at the conclusion of the season.
Mar 28 - 11:01 PM

Steve Mason will be in net against the Senators on Tuesday.
