Fantasy Prospect Pick Up Of The Week
Posted by Dean Millard
Last year Pascale Leclaire established himself as a number one goaltender with the Columbus Blue Jackets. Leclarie recorded 24 wins, with a 2.25 goals against average and a .919 save percentage with 9 shut outs. He also played with team Canada at the world championship held in Quebec and Halifax.
However Leclaire might be getting unseated by another former team Canada pipeman, and it wouldn't be the first time Steve Mason has stolen the #1 job. He did it to Jonathon Bernier last year at the World Junior championship, leading Canada to a gold medal.
This year in Columbus,(heading into Tuesday night) Mason has started 7 of the Blue Jackets games winning 4 of them. The NHL's rookie of the month for November has amassed a goals against average of 1.98 and a save percentage of .923.
Mason is owned by only 60 per cent of the teams on www.cbssports.com and could be the goalie of the future for your fantasy hockey team.
