Artist David Arrigo once again has kindly let inGoal be the first to release shots of one of his new creations. He has been working for Jaroslav Halak since he painted Jaro’s Team Slovakia Olympic Mask.

Here we have his new Blues lid to be worn with the home uniforms. As soon as Jaro has seen the away version David will release shots of it as well. (update:shots of the second mask are now in!). As you can see it combines traditional St. Louis inspired imagery as well as paying homage to a few old Blues goalies – Liut, Fuhr and of course the great Jacques Plante.

    “nice… any reason why Grant Fuhr over Curtis Joseph as third depiction?”

    Um, probably because Grant Fuhr is a hall of famer with five cups.

  8. DaDitka says:

    Well said cprice12, I couldn’t scroll down fast enough to comment, but you already took care of it.

  9. MONDAYNIGHTMIRACLE says:

    Yeah,but CUJO meant more to STL ( & won more games) than the great Fuhr ever did. Were it not for the idiot that blew up the team back then, with Cujo & the rest of the players they had at that time the Blues would have won several cups if they had just let the roster alone for a few years with just a few tweeks.

  10. MONDAYNIGHTMIRACLE says:

    Oh, & Liut is my favorite goalie of all time. The stats for his career are pretty bad though compared to these days of starved scoreing. It was a COMPLETELY different era. But, that one glorious year of 80-81 (FEW PEOPLE I BET KNOW THIS ) he ended up second in the MVP voting in the closest vote EVER. He lost to a kid winning his first mvp award….THE GREAT ONE.

  11. […] building for the former Montreal Canadiens net-minder and the release of his new goalie mask photos on Wednesday certainly added to the enthusiasm. Hockey fans love goalie masks; almost as much as mullets and […]

  12. Jim says:

    I know he was past his prime by the time he became a Blue, as were Plante and Fuhr, but I’m surpirsed no mention of Glenn Hall. I know he was only there for a couple of years, but he helped establish the franchise. Winning the Conn Smythe while playing for the losing team in the Cup finals is unheard of, but he did it.

  13. Bill B says:

    The only great goalie he forgot(or passed on), was Glen Hall. I think it is awesome.

  14. John H says:

    Hall meant so much to the franchise the first few years in the league and while Plante was only here for 2 years but the combo was pretty awesome. 2 past their prime but man they excited my youth. Halak can’t go wrong with any combo Hall, Plante, Liut, Cujo(Curtis Joseph) and Fuhr.

  15. Vince says:

    Winning the Conn Smythe while playing for the losing team in the Cup finals is unheard of, but he did it.

    J-S Giguere did it with the Ducks.

  16. jeffbeck says:

    Are you kidding me? no Glenn Hall? The right side should have been all GH.

  17. jeffbeck says:

    ps Stupid Arch, looks like a croquet hoop.

  18. Kevin says:

    Winning the Conn Smythe while playing for the losing team in the Cup finals is unheard of, but he did it.

    J-S Giguere did it with the Ducks.

    Ron Hextall was the first person from the losing team to win the Smythe with the Flyers.

  19. Tom Adrahtas says:

    Glenn Hall won the Smythe on a losing team 19 years before Hextall. Hall was with the Blues 4 years, Plante 2. Hall ( according to no less than Scotty Bowman ) was the main reason the Blues were respectable when the franchise was born. He should have been on the mask, and the Blues should have retired his number long ago.
