Tampa Goalie Antero Niittymaki’s New Mask
Artist David Arrigo sent along some shots of Antero Niittymaki’s newest mask, which contains many elements from his Flyer’s mask – the bullet holes, and the Al Capone-style gangster. I love that we largely see only a shadow of the gangster – as if his Philly day’s are influencing, but not dominating his play today.
“Nitty” has had a good start to his season, and to date the 6’1″ Finn sports a 7-5-4 record with a 0.919 save percentage and 2.46 GAA.
Enjoy this fantastic work and check out the rest of David’s portfolio at www.darrigoart.com.
Looka like David was inspired by the palatte he had for Brent Johnson’s new pens mask!
