Mason Webster will need little introduction to Mos supporters having previously worn a Dynamos jersey between 2016 and 2018. After being tempted to Kent ahead of the 2016/17 campaign, Webster went on to become an instant hit with fans due to his determined displays, battles in front of the net and willingness to drop the gloves. He featured in 43 games that first season, notched 6 goals and played a role in 29 more for a total of 35 points. He also amassed 187 minutes of penalties. His efforts saw then Head Coach Kevin Parrish pick out the gritty forward as his 2016/17 Coach’s Player of the Year in a season that concluded with the team claiming the NIHL Southern Playoff Title.
Webster returned for a second consecutive stint in 2017/18 where his influence on the side grew even further. Despite the campaign proving difficult for the Dynamos, as they were temporarily thrust into British Ice Hockey’s second tier, Webster personally excelled with 14 goals and 19 assists giving him 33 points in 38 outings. It was a tally that made him the team’s highest points’ scorer and at the end of the season he picked up a hat-trick of accolades including the Forward of the Year, Supporters’ Player of the Year and Players’ Player of the Year awards.
Before joining the Dynamos, Webster had spent a year with the Raiders IHC and it was here he then returned in the summer of 2018. Over the course of two seasons back in Romford the forward featured in 61 games, tallied 7 goals, 25 assists and so 32 points. He also amassed 239 minutes of penalties as he proved himself to be amongst the fiercest combatants in the division. Now though he returns to familiar ground in Kent eager to pull on a Dynamos jersey one again.
“I’m delighted to have Mason back in a Dynamos jersey. He was a key player for the side in the two previous seasons he spent with us – often icing on the top line, getting amongst the points and bringing a high level of protection to the other players. He’s a role model for the younger guys here and a huge hit with the fans who I’m sure will be delighted to have him back. Last season we were perhaps missing the level of physicality Mason brings to the ice but he’s not just an out and out fighter. Mason can play, score, assist and hit. He is a team player and an excellent addition to the squad. He belongs in a Mos jersey so it’s great to have him back putting one on.”
