Chris Mason, 2012-13 Mask

Chris Mason of the Nashville Predators (born April 20, 1976 in Red Deer, AB.)

Artist: Steve Nash of EyeCandyAir

Mason is set to debut another amazing mask from EyeCandyAir, and just like his first Jets mask, it borrows from one of his favourite bands by using an Iron Maiden Eddie.

In fact, the Eddie in question is from the Egyptian-themed cover of the band’s Powerslave album, which also produced the single Aces High and corresponding Eddie included on last year’s mask. It’s a theme that works perfectly because the album covers were created originally by artist Derek Riggs, who has inspired the mask’s artist, Steve Nash, throughout his own career.

As for the backplate, which is often used by goalies for personal messages, Mason instead went with a tribute to Nashville by using artwork that is from the official City Seal and can also be seen on the city’s flag.
