Jimmy Howard: New Mask for 2010-11

I just came across a picture of what has to be the most clever Red Wings goalie mask design and thought I would share it. This design I'm referring to would be Jimmy's mask for the upcoming 2010-11 season, done by Ray Bishop, featuring super villain Doctor Octopus.

I thought his mask from last season was the best it could get with the 1967 Shelby Mustang and a tachometer featuring the retired numbers hanging in the rafters at Joe Louis Arena. I definitely think this new design tops the old one.

Now I just have to hope either Upper Deck or Panini will feature this mask on cards this season, as early releases like Victory and Certified feature the old Mustang design.


  1. As a fan of the goalie masks.....I vote yes for this one.

    Although I would have liked to have seen a more menacing and less cartoonish DocOc.
