Jaroslav Halak 2010-11 Mask

Jaroslav Halak of the St. Louis Blues (born May 13, 1985 in Bratislava, Slovakia.)

He has 2 masks. First one pays homage to St. Louis and past goalies. The 2nd one is more "fun" with cartoon characters. Lucky Luc is his favorite.

According to The Goalie Guild: David Arrigo was the artist of both Halak masks. "The home mask has a classic rendition of the famous Gateway Arch and St. Louis skyline on the right side. Former Blues netminders Jaques Plante, Mike Liut and Grant Fuhr are on the left side. The top of the mask has the Bauer mark sprayed in a light blue, then “St. Louis Blues” written in script and goldleaf above it, then finally a small primary Blues logo just above that. The chin drop has the number 41 encased in a circle with two reversed bluenotes inlaid with more goldleaf."

The road mask: "another dark-blue based mask with a gold cat-eye cage. The left side features a cartoonish white bull with red hair jamming on a red guitar. The right side features the cartoon Lucky Luke, a cowboy in blue jeans riding a smiling white horse on his hind legs. Lucky Luke is known for shooting faster than his own shadow. Light blue musical notes are sprawled across the mask and the chin drop is identical to his home mask."

I looked up Lucky Luke, and it is one of the most popular and best-selling comic-book series in continental Europe.
