Ben Scrivens New Leafs Mask Goes Retro

Ben Scrivens New Leafs Mask Goes Retro

Scrivens’ old school goal mask design brought to life by Daveart

Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Ben Scrivens had a plan for a back-to-basics retro design on his latest mask.

So he turned to famed Swedish painter Dave Gunnarsson of Daveart Designs to create his new look.

Bold and simple, it reminds us of the early days of mask design.

You can almost imagine Mike Palmateer roaming his crease – and often well beyond – wearing this beauty in the late 70s.

As he does with every mask he creates, Gunnarsson had a few words to share on his blog and Facebook page about the retro look he created for Scrivens:

“It was such a pleasure to create Ben Scrivens’ Leafs mask. Ben wanted to go total old school and had this awesome idea in mind. The white leaf in the middle and leaf lines around it almost like water rings.

It can’t be more old school than this, I took white and blue colors and just got started.”

Look for more on Scrivens, who is currently playing with the Marlies in the AHL, in a feature piece in the upcoming December issue of InGoal Magazine. In the meantime enjoy these exclusive up-close photos of his new/old mask, courtesy of DaveArt:

David is one of the Managing Partners for inGoal Magazine. Of course he finds time for some goaltending of his own as well, and despite his age, clings desperately to the idea that some NHL team will call him to play for them - though in his mid-forties it'll likely be for a practice when everyone else on their depth chart has the flu.

  1. I like how simple it is. The current leafs logo in white surrounded by the blue shape of the retro look. Sometimes simple works the best

  4. I wish more goalies wore designs like this. Unlike detailed air brush jobs, this looks great from the nose bleeds and on tv.
