Too good to be true? Well, folks, IT IS TRUE! Such a blockbuster, you can probably only rarely reported as South Tyrolean Ice Hockey Club - except it's just Lockoutzeit again. But one can confidently say that Ritten Sport Renault Trucks has succeeded with the commitment of Chris Mason of the biggest coup in their history!

The 37-year-old Canadian from Red Deer, Alberta, began his career in 1993 in the Canadian Junior Football League and WHL was in 1995 by the New Jersey Devils in the 5th Round selected at position 122. But it would take another three years, until he came to some inserts in the NHL. Between 1998 and 2004, "commuted" between the Nashville Predators, he (NHL), the San Antonio Rampage and the Milwaukee Admirals (AHL both) back and forth. Since 2006, he worked at various NHL clubs under contract (Nashville Predators, St. Louis Blues, Winnipeg Jets and Atlanta Trashers). He also starred in the squad four times the Canadian national team and took it at once to the sensational catch rate of 96.5%. He was ever once world champion, Olympic champion and silver medalist.

A Europe adventure Chris Mason has already under his belt: During the lockout 2004/2005 he hired the Norwegian club Vålerenga Ishockey tradition and was elected to the Club Champion and the best goalkeepers in the league.

The 1.83 m tall and 92kg heavy Goalie is a professional through and through, prepares conscientiously, is human a very sociable type and it will certainly be a pleasure to see him in action. After all, one is not every day the chance, the best goalkeeper ever to play in Italy of watching! He explained to want to play another 3 years of ice hockey and he's hot on track. Also on Ritten Sport and the environment he has already informed. Mason is very motivated and wants to help the club win.

Really still do not like you to believe it. Definitely a great commitment, not only for Ritten Sport Renault Trucks, but for the championship at all.
