On the Winnipeg Jets …

Ken Wiebe: Coach Paul Maurice on goaltender Steve Mason and Michael Hutchinson, both who are out with a concussion.

“Nothing has changed for Micahel. Steve skated again, so that’s a positive that he goes (on) back-to-back (days). That’s all we’re looking for now. That once he starts something, that he can feel good for the rest of the day and then he’ll do it again for tomorrow, until we get enough time in on that and then you just gradually raise the intensity level of that practice. But the back-to-back was a good sign.”
