So Steve Mason, You Want to be a Blue Jacket?

Welcome to another installment of "So, You Want to be a Blue Jacket?

This series is presented in the form of a mock job interview. The operative word here is mock. We're presenting these from the perspective of the player, as if they were applying for a job with the Jackets. The players themselves aren't involved, so don't contact the team if you disagree with one of their answers! No player will avoid the interview process, not even Rick Nash. Today's interviewee is... 

STEVE MASON

Q) Hi Steve, tell us a little about yourself.

A) I was born in Oakville, Ontario on May 29, 1988. I am a goaltender, drafted by the Blue Jackets 69th overall in 2006 from the London Knights of the OHL. 

Q) Tell us about some intangibles you could bring to the Blue Jackets.

A) I am a hybrid goaltender with the durability to be a starter. Since joining the professional ranks I have missed very few games due to injury. I have solid positioning and fundamentals, and I fill a large portion of the net.

Q) What areas of your game do you think you can improve on?

A) Consistency. I sometimes get rattled if I let in a bad goal, or an early goal. I need to maintain my focus for the entire game, and shake off bad or early goals.

Q) Can you give us some examples of your hockey accomplishments?

A) In 2008 I won a gold medal as Team Canada's goaltender at the World Junior tournament. In 2009 I was nominated for the Vezina trophy as the league's top goaltender, and I was the recipient of the Calder trophy as the league's top rookie.
