The genius of David Gunnarsson of DaveART is at it yet again for Pekka Rinne. The ace air-brush painter, and man behind many of the goaltending masks you see in the NHL and around the world, unveiled Rinne’s brand new mask that will be used during the 2014-15 season.
The theme here is rather self explanatory for those who have watched the film Gladiator. It is named Maximus after all. It also stays true to previous incarnations of Rinne’s masks in which a faux-mask is used to cover a beastly looking figure behind the lid.
I’m not certain if Magnus Hellberg or Marek Mazanec will be going back to the well this season in the mask department. Both have DaveART masks for the Admirals and Predators already as it is: Hellberg Ads, Preds // Mazanec Ads, Preds.
Thoughts on Pekka Rinne’s new mask? Would you like to see new lids for Hellberg and Mazanec? If you were to customize a goaltending mask what designs would you have on it?
