Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Steve Mason underwent a procedure on his right knee according to CSNPhilly.com.

GM Ron Hextall updated the media on Friday saying Mason had a fragment removed from the knee and a small tear in the meniscus repaired.

Three MRIs did not show the tear in the meniscus, which is why the Flyers elected to have Mason’s knee scoped.

On Tuesday it was announced he is expected to miss 2-3 weeks with the injury.

Mason left the Flyers’ 3-1 win over the Washington Capitals on Feb. 8 after his knee buckled.

The 26-year-old left the Flyers’ Jan. 10 game against the Boston Bruins with a similar injury.

Mason also left a Jan. 7 practice and underwent an MRI for the injury.

His knee hasn’t been the only issue this season. Mason missed time after tweaking his back his back during a practice on Dec. 19.

The injuries have limited Mason to 34 games this season where he has an 11-12-7 record to go along with a 2.27 G.A.A. and a .925 save percentage.
