Philadelphia Flyers goalie Steve Mason resumed on-ice training on Monday, marking the first time he’s been on the ice since breaking his finger about three weeks ago, according to the Philadelphia Daily News’ Frank Seravalli.
The 26-year-old goalie suffered that injury playing ball hockey this summer.
With training camp starting up in September, Mason should probably not feel many/any ill effects from this mishap. Of course, there’s always a chance that he’ll have a setback or injure it again, but it seems like the Flyers dodged another random offseason injury bullet.
(They weren’t quite as lucky with Claude Giroux heading into the 2013-14 season, although he eventually rebounded to his typically elite form.)
