Ben Scrivens 2015-16 Mask

Ben Scrivens of the Edmonton Oilers Montreal Canadiens (born Sept. 11, 1986 in Spruce Grove, AB.)

Scrivens was traded from Edmonton to Montreal on December 28, 2015. I will leave his Edmonton mask at the bottom of the entry.

Montreal's Scrivens honors Motorhead with mask art

Scrivens has chosen to honor the memory of Lemmy Kilmister, lead singer and bassist of the heavy metal band Motorhead, with his newest goalie mask.
Kilmister, 70, died on Dec. 28 after a battle with an aggressive form of cancer.
Eye Candy Air artist Steve Nash painted the mask, which features a portrait of Kilmister's head inside the ace of spades symbol on one side of the mask.
"He's a huge influence on not just me, but a lot of the bands that I listen to and a lot of the type of music that I listen to," Scrivens said. "For me, he's probably the epitome of heavy metal and rock music in terms of not just his music, but his attitude, his persona, his look. He's an ugly guy, he's got a gruff, ugly singing voice. He says what he thinks all the time, he's swearing all the time, and it wasn't an act. I think that's the thing that came across from him, nothing was for show. You knew that when he went home and talked to his kid he was probably the exact same way."
The other side features the logo of Alexisonfire, a heavy metal band from St. Catharines, Ontario, that has adorned previous masks worn by Scrivens.

This was his first mask with Montreal (same design as in Edmonton, but red instead of orange.)
