Jets place Mason on injured reserve and recall defencemen Festerling and Flood

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets placed goaltender Chris Mason on the injured reserve list Thursday and recalled defencemen Brett Festerling and Mark Flood from the St. John's IceCaps.

The move is retroactive to Oct. 27.

Festerling has four points (one goal, three assists) in 11 games with the IceCaps this season. Flood has seven points (1-6) in 11 games with the American Hockey League club.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
