The Columbus Blue Jackets have been keeping a close eye on Steve Mason lately, and it's not just because of his Calder Trophy-worthy performance.

The club confirmed a Columbus Dispatch report Saturday night that the young goaltender has been battling mononucleosis. According to the newspaper's website, the Blue Jackets will continue to play Mason in goal unless he takes a turn for the worst. The Dispatch adds the the team believes he's been sick for a month.

Mason, 20, has been enjoying a stellar rookie season with the Blue Jackets with a 19-11-2 record, a league-best 1.98 goals-against average and fifth-ranked save percentage (.928) through Friday.
