Mason Columbus Blue Jackets

Sporting News magazine named the Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender as its NHL rookie of the year last week, as Mason beat out high-scoring forwards Bobby Ryan and Kris Versteeg in voting by 292 NHL players.
If history is any guide, Mason should like his chances of taking home the Calder Trophy as the NHL’s top rookie when the league holds its annual awards night next month in Las Vegas. Nine of the past 11 Sporting News rookie-of-the-year award winners have received the Calder, which is voted on by professional hockey writers.
