The only “retro” talk that hockey fans are really interested in right now is a flashback to last season, when the NHL was actually playing instead of locking out its players.

If there’s an exception for goalies, however, it’s the debut of a new retro mask. So in the hopes of cheering up at least the puck-stopping fraternity, InGoal is pleased to present Jonathan Quick’s new purple-and-gold mask, painted by the reigning Stanley Cup- and Conn Smythe-winning goalie’s long-time personal artist, Steve Nash of EyeCandyAir.com.

Quick and EyeCandyAir have teamed up on some great retro masks in the past, including an incredible Rogie Vachon-inspired helmet for the Kings’ 40th anniversary two seasons ago. This time they decided to stick with a new take on Quick’s battle armour mask that goes with the regular black-and-silver jerseys, an original and much-copied look that has quickly become iconic among goalies since it debuted in 2008.

It’s a look that works nicely with the old purple and gold, and the classic Kings logo on the backplate is a nice touch.
