Talk about bizarre offseason injuries for the Flyers

Goalie Steve Mason broke his right pinky finger playing hockey Sunday in Oakville, Ontario, according to general manager Ron Hextall.

Hextall said Mason will miss two weeks of on-ice activity, but not any off-ice training.

Mason's injury bears watching because he catches with his right hand -- not his left.

The 26-year-old was 33-18-7 with a 2.50 goals-against average and .917 save percentage in 61 games (60 starts) last season.

If you’re keeping score of how dangerous the offseason has become for the Flyers in recent years, here’s a brief recap:

• Andrej Meszaros tore his Achilles tendon in a gym

• Jakub Voracek wrecked his Ferrari

• Claude Giroux slashed tendons in his right hand playing golf.
