Free Agent Frenzy: Jets Sign Steve Mason

Are the goaltending problems finally solved?

Winnipeg Jets legend Steve Mason

The Jets may have found their answer in net today by signing former Flyers goaltender Steve Mason. It was originally reported that he wanted a starting role, and not part of a platoon, but things obviously change after gauging interest. The deal has been reported as a 2 year, $4.1 Million contract. No additional details have been revealed if there are any.

The Jets now have a duo of Steve Mason and Connor Hellebuyck going into next season. Is this the missing puzzle piece to a playoff run? Only time will tell, but as of today, I’m pretty content with the signing. It fills a need, the contract is good, and Mason has been pretty good for Philadelphia these last few years.
