Kent Simpson’s mask didn’t make many appearances in the NHL this season, but it has sky-rocketed near the top of my favorites list.

Here’s the article at InGoal Magazine. Artist is Jason Bartziokas of Alberta.

The mask features a military tribute to the Chicago Blackhawks’ first owner. 

"Last year Simpson’s mask payed tribute to Fredric McLaughlin, the Blackhawks’ first owner who named the team after his World War I Infantry Division, ‘The Blackhawks.’ This year, Simpson continues to pay homage to Mclaughlin’s division and the military on left side of the mask.”

“Being granted artistic freedom and myself an admirer of Native American art and culture, I wanted to incorporate traditional elements throughout out the mask that would tie into the jersey and logo nicely,” Bartziokas said.
