Brian Elliott celebrates All Star Game honour with Memento Mask

Brian Elliott celebrates All Star Game honour with Memento Mask

[wpfblike]

It seems a berth in the All Star Game has become as much a nuisance as an honour for some NHL players.

Clearly that’s not the case for Brian Elliott, who plans to savour an invite few would have predicted when the season started.

The St. Louis stopper celebrated his nod in the mid-season classic by taking the rare — it may even be a first — step of having an special All Star Game mask created just for the game by Head Strong Grafx. The one-off “memento” mask still features the Casey Jones character from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on one side, while the other features the Blues logo and the famed Gateway Arch.

Elliott, whose future in the NHL was so uncertain last summer he had to settle for a two-way contract from the Blues, won’t have the Moose head and “Mr. Moose” license plate on the backplate this time. Instead Elliott had artist Jason Livery paint a faded All Star Game logo on the backplate, one he plans to get autographed by fellow NHL All Stars as a keepsake.

Enjoy another great mask from Head Strong Grafx, a relatively new company that burst onto the NHL scene earlier this season with a powerful backplate tribute to Pavol Demitra on Jaroslav Halak’s helmet:

  2. Hey, that’s pretty weird! Last night, before reaching sleep mode, I thought about having a mask for All-Star Game. Sick!

    I really like Casey Jones on that mask!

  5. The backplate is a faded out All Star logo with a faded out Mr. Moose on the bottom. It is made for Ells to get the guys signatures on it so it is not highly detailed.
