Mason came to the Stars following over a decade in Northern Ireland with the Belfast Giants as both a player and assistant coach.
Speaking about his departure Mason had this to say:
“First I wish to thank the Ward family for entrusting me with the opportunity to lead their hockey club this season.
Though it did not bring the on ice success that I had hoped, there were a number of positive strides made both on and off the ice that I hope will continue to move the club forward into the future. This decision was not an easy one but it was made in the best interest of our family. On behalf of myself, Holly, and Max I want to wish the Wards, the fans, and all those around the club the very best now and into the future.”
The Ward family wish Jeff, Holly and Max all the very best for the future and thank Jeff wholeheartedly for his efforts on attempting to bring success to our beloved Stars.
We now look to the future and build for the 2023-24 season.
