The Canadiens have placed Steve Mason on waivers for purpose of a buyout.
The Canadiens acquired Mason in a deal to get Joel Armia and will immediately buy him out. Mason will hit free agency again, but will likely have very few suitors after a bad 2018 season.
The Canadiens have acquired Steve Mason, Joel Armia, a 2019 seventh-round pick and a 2020 fourth round pick from the Jets for Simon Bourque.
Mason is entering his second season of a two-year contract that carries a $4.1M cap-hit. The 30-year-old netminder is coming off of a bad 2018 season, having gone just 5-6-1 with a 3.24 GAA and .906 SV% in 13 starts with the Jets. He will battle with Antti Niemi for the backup job behind Carey Price.
