The Columbus Blue Jackets have added goaltender Steve Mason to the roster on emergency recall, club General Manager Scott Howson announced today. Blue Jackets goaltender Pascal Leclaire left Saturday’s game at San Jose following the second period due to illness and will not be available to play when the club visits the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday.
Mason, 19, was recently named the Most Valuable Player at Top Goaltender at the 2008 World Junior Championships after leading Canada to its fourth-straight gold medal. The Oakville, Ontario native went 5-0-0 with a 1.19 goals-against average, .951 save percentage and one shutout in five games.
