The wait to see Chris Mason’s already famous Jets-logo goal pads and gloves in action is finally over.
So what was the delay? Mason wanted a matching mask.
He received it this morning, designed by Steve Nash of EyeCandyAir with bold, simple graphics that can be as striking from afar as they are up close. It is a celebration of the Jets inaugural season and intended to work with Mason’s remarkable Brian’s SubZero gear – the only goalie gear in the league with team logos proudly on display – and the last delay in seeing those pads on display in an NHL game. Mason, who won his start in Minnesota Thursday night, was planning to wear them in warm-up before backing up Friday against Boston.
