Flyers' Mason resumes training

Posted: August 20, 2014

FLYERS GOALTENDER Steve Mason resumed his on-ice, offseason training yesterday for the first time since breaking his finger last month.

Mason, 26, fractured his right pinky finger while playing ball hockey in his hometown of Oakville, Ontario, on July 27. Flyers general manager Ron Hextall said at the time that Mason would miss 2 weeks of training time.

Since he was back on the ice yesterday, and posted a photo on his Instagram account (@Masey35) to prove it, Mason will have plenty of time to round into form before training camp opens next month.

The Flyers are tentatively scheduled to open camp with physicals on Sept. 18. On-ice practices are due to start on Sept. 19, though many players will trickle into town over the next few weeks for voluntary skating sessions at the team's practice facility.

The Flyers open their preseason slate on Sept. 22 in London, Ontario, against the Maple Leafs at Budweiser Gardens. The puck drops on the regular season on Oct. 8 in Boston.
