COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -The Blue Jackets recalled goalie Steve Mason on Monday from the Ontario Hockey League on an emergency basis due to an illness to usual starter Pascal Leclaire.
Leclaire got sick during Columbus' game on Saturday night in San Jose and won't play Tuesday when the Blue Jackets face the Blues in St. Louis.
Mason, 19, played in three preseason games with the Blue Jackets and was assigned to the London Knights of the OHL, where he went 19-4-3 with a 2.79 goals-against average. He was traded last week to the Kitchener Rangers of the OHL.
He was 5-0 during the world junior championships that finished last week and won a gold medal with Team Canada.
