Jake Allen 2013-14 St. Louis Blues mask in progress leftAnyone who follows goaltender Jake Allen on Twitter probably already knows two things:

1. The St. Louis Blues stopper is an avid fisherman, and

2. is equally proud of his roots in the Canadian Maritimes.

With the help of painter  Jason Livery of HeadStrongGrafx, Allen celebrates both on his new St. Louis Blues mask for 2013-14.

In fact, Allen appears to be fishing himself on the top right side of the mask, which is split into two sides appropriately by the famous Gateway Arch of St. Louis.

On the right side, what appears to be a bass (being from the Westcoast, we at InGoal are limited to salmon fishing) is taking a huge bite out of a colourful lure, with the outline of his native New Brunswick in the background, while on the left side Allen, wearing shades and a Blues cap, is showing off a catch of his own.

The Blues note logo pops on both sides as a nice frame for the mask, while Allen’s No. 34 adorns the chin.

You can find more great masks from Livery on the HeadStrongGrafx website, as well as on Twitter, and FaceBook. In the meantime, enjoy these closeups of Allen’s new Vaughn mask, including some in-progess shots from Livery:

    Hey Blue fans you know what he’s fishing for . That’s right he’s fishing for a Stanley Cup for you. He has great bait (your team) now see if he can put it together with your great team and bring the “CUP” home in due time. He definitely will hook one for you. Don’t give up.

    Without the fishing theme I would have given this mask 10 out of 10. The colors and the layout are awesome. I know the fishing stuff is personal but I think it disturbes the flow of the design.
