Brent Johnson's 2011-12 3rd Jersey Mask

Brent Johnson of the Pittsburgh Penguins (born March 12, 1977 in Farmington, MI.)

Johnson's other mask is found here.

David Arrigo painted the mask Johnson will wear with their 3rd jerseys. It's also Led Zeppelin themed.

"The latest mask contains imagery inspired by a Led Zeppelin concert t-shirt. I blended this imagery into an integrated unit, then overlayed the dark and powder blue colours."

Pekka Rinne's Fan-Designed Mask

The Predators ran a contest where fans got to submit designs for Rinne's mask. I have added it to Rinne's entry here.

Updates on some entries

I've actually had a little time to go through my entries to see who I needed more photos of. So I've added photos for the following:

Jeff Deslauriers of Anaheim

Marty Turco of Boston

Brad Thiessen of Pittsburgh

Ben Bishop of Ottawa (he doesn't have a new mask yet though)

Dustin Tokarski of Tampa Bay

Brian Foster of Florida

Brad Thiessen 2011-12 Mask

Brad Thiessen of the Pittsburgh Penguins (Born on March 19, 1986 in Aldergrove, BC.)

Thiessen was called up in late February when Brent Johnson went down with injury.

Marty Turco 2012 Mask

Marty Turco of the Boston Bruins (born Aug 13, 1975 in Sault Ste. Marie, ON)

Turco was signed by the Bruins in March 2012 after Tuukka Rask went down with injury. He won't be eligible to play in the playoffs, because he signed after the trade deadline.

Bruins lose Rask for 4-6 weeks, sign Turco

From NHL.com

Two days after being forced to leave during the second period of a 3-2 loss to the New York Islanders at TD Garden, the Boston Bruins learned they will be without goaltender Tuukka Rask for the next month.

"Tuukka Rask sustained a lower abdomen strain/groin strain and will be sidelined 4-6 weeks," Bruins
Tuukka Rask
Goalie - BOS
RECORD: 11-8-3
GAA: 2.05 | SVP: 0.929
general manager Peter Chiarelli said in a statement released by the club Monday night.

With Rask (11-8-3, 2.05 goals-against average, .929 save percentage) gone for the foreseeable future, the Bruins signed veteran goaltender Marty Turco to a one-year contract. Turco must clear waivers before joining the club.

Turco, 36, has played in 538 regular season games with the Dallas Stars and Chicago Blackhawks. In his NHL career, he owns a 273-165-26-40 record with a .910 save percentage, 2.35 GAA and 41 shutouts.

Turco has played in 47 postseason contests – all with Dallas – compiling a record of 21-26 with a 2.17 GAA and .914 save percentage and seven shutouts.

Carey Price's Clorox Contest Mask

This season Carey Price again wore a mask that was designed by someone that won a mask design contest that Clorox held. David Arrigo was the artist (as usual for Price's masks) and the winning design was created by Jim from British Columbia, who shared this insight on his artwork:
I was just trying to think outside the box and do something different… my hope is that the Raven becomes a part of Carey’s identity.
Here is the artist's blog entry about the mask.

He wore the mask in the game against the Toronto Maple Leafs on March 3, 2012.
