COLUMBUS, Ohio – With front-line goaltender Steve Mason idled by a groin strain, the Columbus Blue Jackets have added goaltender David LeNeveu (LEH’-neh-voo) to the roster on emergency recall from their American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield.
General manager Scott Howson announced the move on Monday.
Mason was hurt when players fell on him after he made a save on Friday night in Anaheim. He did not practice on Monday and the club hopes he can return by the weekend.
The 27-year-old LeNeveu has a 10-10-2 record with a 2.82 goals-against average and an .898 save percentage in 22 games with Springfield this season.
