A Look At Winnipeg’s Goaltending

from Ed Tait of the Winnipeg Free Press,

When it comes to the Jets’ goaltending, there are some meaty question marks, what with No. 1 man Ondrej Pavelec not only a restricted free agent but drawing interest from the KHL—negotiating ploy or not—and with veteran backup Chris Mason scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in just over two weeks.

Not only that, but veteran David Aebischer, who appeared in 31 games in St. John’s this winter, is an unrestricted free agent, and Fredrik Pettersson-Wentzel, once considered the top goaltending prospect in the system, did not have his contract renewed.
