Boston Bruins prospect Malcolm Subban maskWhen Bruins’ prospect Malcolm Subban asked for a new mask for this season with the Belleville Bulls of the Ontario Hockey League, he only had a couple instructions for Montreal painter, David Leroux.

“He wanted to have something more DARK and mean,” Leroux said, “So he asked me to paint a grim reaper. He wanted to have a black background and his other request was to have a bible verse somewhere on the mask. For the rest, he let me run with it!”

Judging by the finished product, it was a smart decision by Subban, who was picked 24th in last summer’s draft by Boston and signed a three-year entry level deal with the Bruins in early September.

The results, featuring the biblical reference on a backplate that includes the Bruins logo, a Bulls logo on one side, and the Reaper on the other, speak for themselves:

The backplate biblical verse is Psalm 23:4, which reads: “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”

  1. Matt in Montreal says:

    I dig that he honors the team he actually plays for and pays a minor tribute to the Big Team on his backplate; like that is the ultimate goal, but until then, he’s a full-time Bull.
