Monster Tom and Jerry on Penguins Prospect Mask

Monster Tom and Jerry on Penguins Prospect Mask

Tristan Jarry Edmonton Oil Kings 3rd jersey mask left side topThe Edmonton Oil Kings of the Western Hockey League have a new alternate jersey, logo and colours – so their goaltender, Pittsburgh Penguins’ second round draft pick Tristan Jarry, needed a new mask to match.

The only problem now will be putting this beauty away when wearing the original jerseys.

The fourth mask painted for Jarry by Alberta-based artist Jason Bartziokas, the new design combines the realistic, evil zombie theme from their first mask together, with the more recent – and much more playful – takes on the goaltender’s nickname, “Tom and Jarry.”

“If you take a look at my portfolio you can see I don’t generally do cartoony theme masks and that my style would be described as realistic,” Bartziokas said. “But Tristan thought a cartoony mask would appeal to the younger crowd who comes to the Oil King Games and would reflect his personality much better.”

Jarry’s regular jersey mask for 2013-14 was the blueprint for this alternate mask,  with similar logos, names and character layout – this one just adds a monstrous twist to the famous cartoon cat and mouse.

In addition to a portrait of Jarry’s grandfather that has been on the last three masks, there is also a touching “Play for Pelss” tribute on the backplate for former teammate Kristian Pelss, who gave Jarry the “Tom and Jarry” nickname before passing away in his native Latvia this summer.

You can find more from Bartziokas on his Facebook Page as well as on Instagram. He doesn’t have a company website but said he can be reached through Facebook, by email at [email protected], or on Twitter:
