Winnipeg Jets Player News: Last 24 hours, All Positions

News: Hellebuyck will get the starting nod against Minnesota on Friday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Impact: If coach Paul Maurice had any doubts about whether to utilize Hellebuyck versus the Wild, they were probably squashed when Steve Mason got shelled for five goals in his matchup with the Blue Jackets on Tuesday. The two netminders have been as different as night and day. Hellebuyck is 3-0-0 with a 2.11 GAA while Mason's record sits at 0-3-0 including a 5.96 GAA. For the time being, the 24-year-old Hellebuyck is firmly entrenched as the No. 1 in Winnipeg.
News: Mason stopped just 34 of 39 shots in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Blue Jackets.
Impact: Mason had another subpar showing after watching teammate Connor Hellebuyck win three consecutive games in the past week. Mason was shelled in the first two games of the season, giving up 11 goals.
