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.

    Porelle , I dont think he will go with dark red , He will probly make the pink parts white and the baby blue parts darker blue and the red will be on the ” PRICE ” Lettering and the feather and ryme stones or beads or whatever they are i think they are beads tho , I donno tho he could easily go with red since his current helmet is based white , And his first helmet was half red half blue his second helmet was red 3rd was dark red 4th was white and blue 5th was red blue and white mixed with all the jersey numbers and then the one he has now which is white the helmet he got 2 franchise records one of which was Ken Drydens , If he is like any other he will keep the white , But i dont think he is super superstitious cause he decided to change his pad brand after getting those 2 records with vaughn ? i thought that was kinda stupid and rude to do to vaughn after they did make those pads he got 37 wins in but i donno maybe he will go back never know . sorry for rambling lol
