Joonas Korpisalo brings Columbus Cannon into focus with new mask
Last season, Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Joonas Korpisalo had an AHL-centric mask, with the Lake Erie ‘Monster’ featured on either sides of the design.
This year, though, he’s paying homage to the big club – or, at least, to one of their quirkiest attributes.
This new mask, designed by Sylvie Marsolais of SylaBrush, has every Columbus fan’s favorite- and every opposing team’s media members’ least favorite – Blue Jackets icon featured prominently on the side: the Columbus Cannon.
“Joonas wanted a cannon on his mask,” Marsolais told InGoal, “and he wanted the cannon to throw some stars towards the top of the mask.”
