As a goalie myself, I feel the need to write this post with my many other goalie posts.
"Daveart", the leading goalie mask design company, released pictures Thursday of Pekka Rinne's new mask for the upcoming season. As we know, Rinne's mask was a topic of discussion last season with switching his goalie mask to the one he used two seasons ago and allowing a Predators' fan to design his mask in which he would wear in one game.
Hopefully, this new design can work for Pekka Rinne in winning the Stanley Cup. Rinne is very superstitious and if he doesn't have the correct design, his mind is semi-shot.
See the pictures of the new mask after the jump.
Thoughts on the mask
In every goalie, the mask is to their design and how they want it. As we know, Pekka Rinne is into some weird monsters. I guess it is to intimidate the opponent, to a small effect.
I really do like it as it looks like a "predator" and has the navy and gold colors on it. Daveart has made another brilliant mask, once again.
