The Winnipeg Jets added a former Calder Trophy-winning goalie to their crease.

The Jets reached a deal with goaltender Steve Mason, according to Jeff Hamilton of the Winnipeg Free Press.

The agreement is for two years at a cap hit of $4.1 million per season, per TSN’s Bob McKenzie.

Mason, 29, took home rookie of the year honors in the 2008-09 season with the Columbus Blue Jackets, recording a league-high 10 shutouts.

His career has been full of ups and downs since then, but he owns a respectable lifetime .911 save percentage and a 2.68 goals-against average.

Mason spent parts of the last five seasons with the Philadelphia Flyers and will compete for starts with 24-year-old Connor Hellebuyck in Winnipeg.
