Coming up with creative and interesting designs for goalie masks is a burgeoning trend in the NHL today. On Friday, the Philadelphia Flyers 25-year-old goalie, Steve Mason, took it to a whole new level.
His new helmet design?
A montage of four of his marquee teammates: Captain Claude Giroux, Wayne Simmonds, Scott Hartnell and Jakub Voracek painted in a terrifyingly-detailed zombie form.
Check it out:
At least Mason asked his teammates for permission before turning them into the undead.
“I just flat-out told them, ‘Would you want to be on a helmet? You’re going to get a lot of airtime. At the end of the day you’ll probably look better as a zombie than you do in real life,'” Mason said.
“He asked me and I was pretty pumped about it,” Giroux said, “It’s pretty awesome he did that.”
The Flyers have had an up and down season to date. They currently sit in fourth place of the Metropolitan division but Mason has been a definite bright spot for the Broad Street Bullies.
I personally love the new helmet design, he plays a game for a living; why shouldn’t he fun with it?
