Excitement has been at a fever pitch around these parts once Montreal Canadiens got a hint that a new Carey Price goalie mask was on the horizon.
The amount of emails, Tweets, Facebook Posts, phone calls, letters, candlelight vigils…etc I receive from Montreal Canadiens fans is astounding. When it comes to their team and in particular their goaltending, they are a persistent bunch and analyze every detail.
Without further ado here is the goalie mask that Carey Price will wear for the start of the 2011-12 campaign. With this helmet Carey Price decided to go back to his native roots, where he was raised in Anahim Lake, British Columbia.
Carey wanted to celebrate his ancestry which drove my design elements of Anahim Lake, a native elder, and a dream catcher.
The base colour of the helmet is pink to match the equipment that Carey will be wearing throughout the month of October in support of Breast Cancer Awareness.
Breast Cancer Awareness is a cause I thoroughly support. Last year I was able to take part by painting pink skates for Toronto Maple Leafs Mike Komisarek and Colton Orr.
The game worn mask will be auctioned off through www.legendsdepot.com. The bidding will commence on October 6th and continue until the end of the month with all proceeds going to cancer research.
