Colton Point’s first Dallas Stars mask dripping in style
Colton Point was dripping with potential when the Dallas Stars selected him in the fifth round, with the 128th pick, in the 2016 NHL Draft, so it’s fitting his first professional mask is dripping too.
Point, who was a second-team All American after posting a .944 save percentage in his sophomore season at Colgate University, will start this season with the Texas Stars in the American Hockey League, and he will look sharp doing it, thanks to artist Sylvie Marsolais of Sylabrush:
“Colton gave us some quick guidelines for his new paint job and we came out with this design,” Marsolais said in an email to InGoal. “On each side there’s a big 3D Stars logos with some paint dripping from it, and just above the logos your can see Dallas skyline.”
The chin features his family name in a brushed aluminum effect:
And the entire mask, including the cage, has a matte finish.
Point’s new mask doesn’t have the same bold pop-culture reference as Stars backup Anton Khudobin, who asked Marsolais to paint Dobby, an elf from the Harry Potter movies, making a glove save on one side of his new Dallas lid. But it’s certainly no less eye catching.
