InGoal recently brought you the Penguins’ Marc-Andre Fleury’s 2011-2012 mask and we have just received his team mate Brent Johnson’s new lid from artist David Arrigo. As he does each year, the design is a Led Zeppelin tribute like last year, and Johnson’s 2009-2010 mask , but while he has made each mask reflect a particular album, this time Arrigo and Johnson went  slightly different route, “Johnny and I decided to create our own Zepp album cover,” Arrigo told us – and in our opinion it’s the best one yet.

  1. Nick H. says:

    I like the artsy side of this mask—it looks great. And wait for it, wait for it … here come the comments from the old-school, classic guys who won’t like the fact you can’t make out the details from the stands. Oh well! ;-)

  2. Matt in Montreal says:

    I’m waiting patiently for Price and Budjai’s masks.

  3. Nick…Brodeur’s coming soon with a nice blend of detail and a design seen from the stands.

    Matt…spoke with Price’s artist today (David Arrigo) and we’ll have that one for you before long.

    Hoping to see Varly, Jiggy and Desjardins marks’ soon. Especially Varly’s since he’s a Daveart customer and I personally think Dave’s work is the best out there right now.

    I love that mask, anyone know what font is used there and what is on the right side?

  6. Joe Pack says:

    I guess I’m one of those “old school, classic guys”. Here’s my take on why bringing out a true character (and visibility) through a mask is essential.
