FLYERS REWARD MASON
PHILADELPHIA - The Flyers were hoping Steve Mason could prove this season that he could be the long-sought answer in goal.

In a seven-game audition last season and through 36 appearances so far this season, Mason made his case.

And today, the Flyers rewarded him.

The Flyers signed Mason to a three-year contract extension that will keep him in Philadelphia through the 2017 season.

The deal is worth $12.3 million, which carries an annual cap hit of $4.1 million.

Mason is 19-11-5 so far this season and is carrying a 2.48 goals against average and a .917 save percentage, his best numbers since his Calder Trophy-winning season with Columbus in 2008-09.

Mason, 25, signed a one-year deal worth $1.5 million for the Flyers before the season. The Flyers were not allowed to negotiate a new deal with Mason until after Jan. 1 because of the one-year deal, per rules in the Collective Bargaining Agreement.

Considering his age and his strong play, this was a smart signing by the Flyers for a still-young goalie at a palatable cap number for a manageable term.

I will have more on this tonight from the game.
