I don't hold out much hope for this team. The Red Wings are still the powerhouse contender in the central. now the 'hawks look like they have turned the corner. They have some players interesting like Huselius that might shine and Leclaire will steal them a few wins. (why oh why get rid of zherdev and hainsey :unsure: ) me thinks the owners are cheap...

Goalie Steve Mason named NHL rookie of the month

Steve Mason's first full month in the NHL ended in style. The Columbus Blue Jackets goalie was named the league's top rookie in November after posting a 5-2-1 record. Mason was recalled from the American Hockey League on Nov. 4 and earned victories in his first three starts. The 20-year-old ended up with a 2.09 goals-against average, .919 save percentage and two shutouts in eight appearances. He's the second straight Columbus player to receive the top rookie honour after forward Derrick Brassard took it in October.

Columbus sure has some good young players in their system with Mason, Brassard and Voracek already with the parent club and Nikita Filatov developing in the wings. The parent club has a solid, young defence core in Rostislav Klesla (26), Fedor Tyutin (25), Ole-Kristian Tollefsen (24), Marc Methot (23), and Kris Russell (21) which should only get stronger with experience.

Thats the thing though, he was prodcuing before that stretch and the only reason forn his slump is because he lost his ice time. Maybe Hitcock dosn't like his defensive play otherwise it makes zero sense.

Well I can't see it being his defensive game either. He is +7 (tied for 2nd on the team) on the season and has only had six -1 games out of the 24 he has played. That is pretty sound especially for a 19 year old.

On a mediocre team 20 year old Steve Mason is the best young goalie in the NHL this season.

1st in the NHL with a 1.78 GAA

Tied for 1st in the NHL with a .935 Save %

2nd in the NHL with 4 shutouts

add another shutout tonight...

currently, Mason is the best young goalie in the NHL, period...

should make the Olympic team selections interesting...

barring injuries and total slumps: Luongo is a given, probable #1A

at most, I think they'd only take one young goalie as the #3, and that would have to be Mason, over Price -- unless Price really heats up over the next year, or comes close to winning the Cup...

and that leaves the #1B as Brodeur? or/and Giguere?

Dear god if Brodeur is the starting goalie for Canada it will just show how the commitee puts names ahead of ability.

Steve Mason activated off IR, Dan LaCosta sent back down to the AHL

http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=409164

Five day recovery after being put on IR for mono. They must have wonder drugs to deal with this disease these days. :blink:

I really don't understand the urgency as 22-year-old LaCosta went 2-0 with a 1.54 GAA and a .950 save percentage in his first two NHL games replacing Mason.
