Some goalie love... :)

How about that that kid, Mason, who's been in goal for the Blue Jackets?! He's been named one of the NHL players of the week! Congrats Steve!

Over the summer, he had surgery on both of his knees and probably went through pretty painful and intense physical therapy to get back into working shape. He spent the rest of the summer getting into game shape. He wins the first 3 games of the season down in the Jacket's AHL affiliate Syracuse Crunch. Then he's called up to the big club and wins his first NHL game ever as well as the next 2 games.

He's been said to be THE top young goaltender prospect in the NHL.

Here's another shot of Mason courtesy of REUTERS/Matt Sullivan (UNITED STATES). I LOVE profile shots of goalies! You can just see the focus and concentration in their eyes...

Pretty sweet, eh?
