After a sub-par season in Nashville, where Mason was ousted as the starter and then forgotten, he’s been traveling to Calgary this summer to work with Tyler Love, who runs World Pro Goaltending. Love, who has worked with Montreal’s Carey Price and Los Angeles’ Jason Labarbera, is trying to help Mason upgrade his technique.
“It’s been a few things he wanted to work on ... when to stay down, when to get back to your feet,” Love said. “They are skills the new goalies coming up have ... like a Carey Price, who is very good technique-wise. Chris has been in the league awhile, and he wanted to go back and focus on his skills.”
The work appears to be similar to what Blues assistant Rick Wamsley has done with Legace over the past two years. Wamsley has spent countless hours improving Legace’s footwork, and Legace’s trip to the NHL All-Star game last season illustrated the success.
