Steve Mason would love to play in the All-Star game this season.
The game will be played in Columbus where Mason got his NHL start but struggled the last few years there after winning the Calder Trophy. He goes into camp as the Flyers undisputed number one netminder. "That's nothing that's crossed my mind, but it would be nice to go full circle," Mason said. "Philly is where I've kind of revived myself and learned to love the game again." Sep 21 - 8:53 AM

Steve Mason will enter training camp this season as the undisputed number one goaltender.

Mason came to camp last season in a battle with Ray Emery for the number one spot but quickly grabbed the reins and established himself as the top goalie in Philadelphia. He had a 33-18-7 record with a 2.50 GAA and a .917 save percentage so look for more of the same this season. Mason broke his pinky finger at the end of July but apparently is fully recovered and ready to go.

Steve Mason suffered a broken pinky finger while playing ball hockey.

Mason will stay off the ice for the next two weeks, but he'll continue to work out off the ice. This shouldn't impact his fantasy value for the 2014-15 campaign.

Former NHL-star-turned-broadcaster Jeremy Roenick does not believe the Flyers will win the Stanley Cup with Steve Mason in net.

"I like Steve Mason, but I don’t think [he] is the answer to winning a Stanley Cup," the former Flyer said in a radio interview. "I think you need an upper echelon defenseman, I think you need an upper echelon goaltender. Both, the Flyers do not have. I think that’s something that you’re going to have to look at in terms of improving your team." In his first full season with the Flyers, Mason posted a 33-18-7 record. The goalie also recorded a .917 save percentage, a 2.50 goals against average, and four shutouts in 61 games played.

Philadelphia is hoping to be a more consistent team in 2014-15.

"I just think we tend to get away from our game too often," Steve Mason said. "We can play 20 minutes, 40 minutes of unbelievable hockey and completely control our game, but we tend to get away from that a period at a time. Come playoffs, if you're not going to gather a full 60 minutes, that's what's going to cost you." Mason added that the Flyers didn't put forth their full effort for an entire 60 minutes in any of their playoff games against the New York Rangers. That being said, the Flyers are upbeat upbeat about their chances for the 2014-15 campaign.

With his stellar play in the playoffs, Steve Mason dispelled any doubts that he will be the Flyer starter next season.

The Flyers have a number of issues to address this off-season but starting goaltending isn't one of them as Mason was Philly's best player in the playoffs despite playing in only four of the seven games. He is 26 years old and entering his prime and seems to have rebounded from a number of uneven seasons after winning the Calder Trophy as the NHL's top rookie six years ago. Mason should be a solid fantasy pick in 2014-15.

Steve Mason, starting in goal for Philadelphia for the first time since suffering an upper-body injury April 12, "won the game for us," Flyers forward Matt Read said after Philly's 2-1 playoff win over the Rangers Friday night.

The series is now tied 2-2, and the Flyers are confident they can come back to win the series with Mason back. He stopped 37 shots Friday. ""He stood on his head all night and made some big saves for us. He put the team on his shoulders.’’ Mason said: "It was a lot of fun to get back out there in this kind of atmosphere. . .I’ve waited a long time for this. But one win doesn’t do very much in the long run.’’ Mason`s playoff record was 0-4 before Friday night.

Steve Mason was instrumental in Philadelphia's 2-1 win over New York in Game 4, stopping 37 shots in his return to the lineup on Friday night.

The Rangers piled on the pressure all game long, at times dominating the hometown Flyers, but Mason played a solid game and gave his team the chance to win. The Flyers were outshot 38-25, gave away the puck 13 times and were shorthanded four times, but Mason provided strong netminding in sending the series back to Madison Square Garden knotted up at two. Mason made his first start since suffering an upper body injury on April 12.

If that's a gauge for myself, I feel pretty good." Mason returned from an upper-body injury for Game 3 on Tuesday. He started the game as the backup goaltender, but ended up replacing Ray Emery once he got yanked.
