NHL notebook: Flyers sign goalie Mason to contract extension

Penguins/NHL Videos

Sunday, Jan. 19, 2014, 12:01 a.m.
 

Flyers goaltender Steve Mason has signed a contract extension reportedly worth $12.3 million over three years.

The 25-year-old Mason is 19-11-5 with a 2.48 goals-against average and .917 save percentage entering Philadelphia's game against the New York Islanders on Saturday night. Mason was acquired from Columbus last April, and has become the team's No. 1 goalie.

Mason played well despite the team's poor start and has helped the Flyers into playoff contention. The Flyers are 23-12-5 since a 1-7 start.

Mason was the NHL's Rookie of the Year in 2008-09 when he was 33-20-7 for the Blue Jackets.

• Blues forward Alexander Steen is back in the St. Louis lineup after missing 11 games because of a concussion. Steen, who leads the Blues with 24 goals, last played Dec. 21 in a 6-0 win at Edmonton. He was greeted Saturday night with a standing ovation from the home crowd before St. Louis played the Anaheim Ducks. A nine-year NHL veteran, Steen will play for Sweden in the upcoming Sochi Olympics.
