Wile E. Coyote featured on Coyote goalie’s mask

[wpfblike]
This one isn’t your average goalie mask – Mike Smith’s first Coyotes helmet is now complete and I think you’ll get the inspiration that artist David Arrigo used for this one! Smitty came up with the theme and then David gave it the style. We love the back plate especially – go have a look!

Smitty’s helmet was custom built for him by Dom Malerba at Pro’s Choice.

For those wondering, the name across the top is honouring Mike’s new son.

    Very cool concept and execution. And maybe I am missing something but why is it A. Smith instead of M. Smith?

  2. A. Smith is Mike’s new son

    This is awesome!!! I love that Wylie Coyote has on some old school goalie equipment! Plus, he’s got the roadrunner feathers in his mouth! Great concept/design! He’s only missing an acme box of goalie tricks! hahahaha

    Interesting play on the old Patrick Lalime Marvin Mask

    Beyond AWESOME mask! I’m glad to see Mike getting a legit chance at #1 in Phoenix, this is likely a make-or-break season for him.

    Totally stole Mikael Tellqvist’s idea! Google image search it! Tellqvist had the idea first. Nice try Shmitty!

  10. Brutal.. if I cant tell whats happening on a mask after looking at it for 10 seconds, it’s bad. Almost a nice mask.. ALMOST.
