Mason (undisclosed) will back up Connor Hellebuyck in Game 1 against the Predators on Friday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

Mason came in as relief for Hellebuyck in Game 3 of the conference quarterfinals and stopped all seven shots. Aside from that dud, Hellebuyck has been lights out and the Jets will rely on him if they want to hoist the Stanley Cup, so if Mason ultimately makes an appearance, it will signal that Winnipeg is in serious trouble.
