  • Mason stopped 29 of 30 shots in Saturday's win over Arizona. Zac Rinaldo opened the scoring in the first period, but Mason stood tall and shut the door the rest of the way to earn his first victory in a Jets uniform. Considering Connor Hellebuyck has been struggling and was pulled in his last outing, this performance from Mason couldn't have come at a better time for his fantasy owners. Mason was excellent in his last start against the Blue Jackets and could see some more crease time moving forward. The former Flyer has the potential to steal games, so if he can showcase some consistency, he could be worth an add.

  • Mason will command the crease as Saturday's road starter versus the Coyotes, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. No.1 backstop Connor Hellebuyck has yielded five goals in two of his last three starts, so head coach Paul Maurice will see if Mason can get the Jets back on track. Acquired in the offseason, Mason was expected to at least grab half of the starts for Winnipeg, but those plans changed in a hurry since he coughed up 16 goals over his first three appearances for an unsightly 5.98 GAA and .846 save percentage. Anything can happen in today's NHL, but at least on paper, the Coyotes pose a weak threat to throttle Mason since they've only recorded seven points in the league standings through 18 games.

  • Mason made five saves on five shots in relief of Connor Hellebuyck in a loss against the Golden Knights on Friday. The Jets backup netminder played the final period after Hellebuyck allowed five goals in the first 40 minutes. Despite the ice heavily titled in Winnipeg's favor in the last period, no one scored, and the Jets lost, 5-2. In all likelihood, Mason will start the second part of a back-to-back situation Saturday night in Arizona, but there's no reason to think Hellebuyck won't remain the No. 1 netminder with the Jets.

  • Mason saved 35 of 37 shots during Friday's 2-1 overtime loss to Columbus. This was easily Mason's best outing of the campaign, as he entered with an atrocious .846 save percentage and 5.96 GAA through his first three starts. As it stands, Connor Hellebuyck has earned No. 1 billing for the Jets, and he'll likely command the crease most nights for the immediate future. Mason probably still carries value in plenty of fantasy settings, but being selective with his matchups moving forward is advised. Additionally, it wouldn't be shocking if Mason and Hellebuyck reverted back to a near 50-50 timeshare down the road.

  • Mason will tend the twine in Friday's road tilt versus the Blue Jackets, Ted Wyman of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Mason has been abysmal to start the 2017-18 campaign, as he has registered a 0-3-0 record and 5.98 GAA. The netminder's subpar performance likely won't come as a surprise to Flyers fans, who watched him struggle much of last season (26-21-8 with a .908 save percentage). Heading into the 2017-18 campaign, the veteran looked poised to compete for the starting job, but his struggles, combined with the long-awaited emergence of Connor Hellebuyck, have firmly cemented Mason as the backup in Winnipeg.
