Mikka Kiprusoff’s Black Calgary Flames Mask

Mikka Kiprusoff’s Black Calgary Flames Mask

Last season the Calgary Flames star goaltender Mikka Kiprusoff received a new mask design which was an evolution of the flaming skulls design he has worn throughout his career – this time with a black base – again designed and painted by Kipper’s longtime artist Todd Miska of Miska Designs. Miska sent us studio photos as soon as the mask was complete as well as shots of an old-school Mike Liut style mask he painted for Kipper.

InGoal’s Scott Slingsby captured these images of Kipprusoff’s black game mask recently. Let us know in the comments what you think of it…do you prefer the red mask that established his personal “look?”

David Hutchison

David is one of the founders of InGoal Magazine which he began in 2009. Of course he finds time for some goaltending of his own as well, and despite his age, clings desperately to the idea that some NHL team will call him to play for them - though in his mid-forties (OK, late 40s) it'll likely be for a practice when everyone else on their depth chart has the flu and the shooter tutor has gone in for repairs.

    Much better than the over-designed masks most goalies wear.

    I agree with Paul. But the black doesn’t go with Calgary colours. CLASH.

    Even though I’m not a Flames fan, I love Miska’s work. I still think Kipper’s very first Flames mask was the best with the gold foil “Kipper” on the chin drop.

      He did indeed….we were just presenting game photos of it.

    Okay, I should have read the entire thing first haha!

    Kipper has had one of the best consistent designs throughout his career. The fact that the basics of it never change but a new twist is added to it once in a while is what’s so great about this style.

    The white trim makes A WORLD of difference compared to so many overdone masks.

    This mask needs the number 34 font updated. Looks like a font for the upcoming Monster Truck Extravaganza coming to the Saddle Dome.
