Rangers Talbot Gets Slimed on New Ghostbusters Mask
New York Rangers’ Cam Talbot teamed up with Swedish artist David Gunnarsson of DaveArt to produce another striking mask themed around the popular Ghostbusters films.
The 27-year old goalie’s “The Zuul Doggy Dog” mask proved to be a hit among fans; and Talbot looks to be on to a winner again, with his new mask depicting one of the films most well known “villains,” Slimer.
“Slimer is big, he is sliming and drooling, and he looks very hungry,” Gunnarsson wrote on his Facebook page. “Lucky for us Cam Talbot is also known as the ‘Goalbuster’, so he can take care of the Slimer and get him rid off his face.”
The famous Ghostbusters glutton switches from his traditional green to a more ‘Rangers friendly’ blue, with the increasingly popular glow in the dark paints used for his eyes and teeth to give the mask a suitably spooky look when the lights go out.
The iconic Ghostbusters’ logo also utilises Gunnarsson’s special G.L.O.W Tech FX, adorning the chin of Talbot’s new mask, while the Rangers Statue of Liberty crest features on the left and right hand side of the new design, as well as the crown.
This is Talbot’s third Ghostbusters based mask, having previously worked with DaveArt on his Ectoplasm Rocker and 2014 Stadium Series designs.

With Henrik Lundqvist back to his dominant self in the playoffs and speculation other teams may try to acquire Talbot this summer, this may be the only chance fans get to see it up close:
