Canadiens Carey Price debuts another new (but temporary) mask
Carey Price debuted a new mask Saturday night against Washington, but it was a one-game deal.
So for those looking for more shots of the temporary lid – and the story behind it – InGoal Magazine is happy to help.
Painted once again by Price’s personal artist David Arrigo of darrigoart.com, the mask was part of a contest sponsored by Clorox Bleach, a sponsor of the team. Unfortunately it was the Canadiens that got whitewashed by impressive Washington rookie Braden Holtby on Saturday night, but Price could hardly be blamed for the loss. He was even named the game’s first star (Holtby was second) after making 31 saves to keep Montreal in it.
The winning design, which is pictured below, was painted by Arrigo and worn by Price before being returned to the contest winner after they watched the game in seats that came with winning the contest (the winner also got a $500 for dinner at Mise-O-Jeu).
Arrigo is Carey’s regular artist and the creator of his popular but creepy Heritage Classic mask, as well as his Montreal helmet art. He’s also by far the most diverse artist in the business doing work for the NFL (Super bowl murals), NASCAR, the Canadian Forces and more charitable works than you can imagine.
