The Montreal Canadiens have acquired goaltender Steve Mason and forward Joel Armia in a trade with the Winnipeg Jets.
The Canadiens acquire forward Joel Armia, goaltender Steve Mason, a seventh-round draft pick in 2019 and a fourth-round pick in 2020 from the Winnipeg Jets, in exchange for defenseman Simon Bourque.

As part of the trade, the Jets are also sending a seventh-round pick in 2019 and a fourth-round pick in 2020 to Montreal. In return, Montreal is sending AHL defenceman Simon Bourque to the Jets.
Jets clear cap space to possibly re-sign Paul Stastny

Mason, 30, is coming off a disappointing first season with the Jets, who signed him to a two-year contract last summer that carries a $4.1 million cap hit. Mason was expected to be the starter in Winnipeg last season, but a slow start gave Connor Hellebuyck an opportunity and he took it. By the end of the season, Hellebuyck was a Vezina Trophy finalist and Mason was left to be the backup.
Mason also missed some time with concussions, which limited him to only 13 games with the Jets. He posted a 5-6-1 record with a 3.24 goals-against average and .906 save percentage.
Shortly after the trade was announced, the Canadiens placed Mason on waivers for the purpose of a buyout.
With goaltender Steve Mason on unconditional waivers, here is how a buyout will breakdown against the #Habs for the next two seasons.
They will take on a $1,366,667 cap hit in both seasons.https://t.co/xVgziWwlYhpic.twitter.com/cekp1kBvcE

Armia, 25, is a winger who was originally a first-round pick by the Buffalo Sabres and was acquired by Winnipeg as part of the Evander Kane trade. In 180 NHL games he has 26 goals and 58 points.
Bourque, 21, was a sixth-round pick by the Canadiens in 2015. In his first AHL season last year, Bourque had three assists in 46 games.

I know why Chevaldayoff did it of course. Needs to clear cap space to sign RFA's and to try and resign Stastny. 
I haven't been a chronic complainer about Chevy like many here in Winnipeg but this is a brutal trade IMO.
Mason and Armia and 2 picks for Simon Bourque who will never play an NHL game IMO.
Armia replaceable Imo but G until I his past season has been an Achilles heel for this team and if Hellebuyck goes down watch out. Mediocrity here we come.
