Price’s pink mask celebrates native heritage, raises cancer awareness
Carey Price is going back to his native heritage with his new mask.
According to his personal artist, David Arrigo, the Montreal Canadiens star, whose mother Lynda is a former chief of the Ulkatcho First Nation, wanted to celebrate his ancestry with images of tiny Anahim Lake, the town of just over 300 people in northern British Columbia where he grew up, a native elder, and a dream catcher all highlighted in the stunning new design.
The paint scheme was created by Arrigo, Price’s longtime artist, and throughout October the base colour will be pink in support of breast cancer awareness and Hockey Fights Cancer, complimenting the pink pads and gloves revealed by InGoal Magazine Thursday.
Price’s game worn mask will be auctioned off beginning on October 6 and continuing until the end of the month, with proceeds going to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. More photos can be viewed at www.davidarrigo.com and you can bid on the mask now at www.legendsdepot.com.
