David Gunnarsson, legendary NHL goal mask painter has outdone himself once again. He’s been working hard on Cam Talbot’s mask all summer and, after a long wait, the masterpiece was finally ready to be unveiled. Instead of more teasers, we finally got some close-ups showing off the amazing details on the mask, and it looks like he got an upgrade from last year.
Well there you have it, in all its glory!
As expected, Cam went with the Ghostbusters theme again this year. Cam’s been known to have a Ghostbuster theme on his mask in the past, and as you can compare with last years mask in the picture below, he got another little upgrade. In honour of his newborn twins him and wife, Kelly had last year, he’s now repping ‘ghost twins’ on the side.
Admittedly, I do believe in ghosts, and in certain circumstances would be afraid of ghosts if I came across something along that nature in real life, BUT if all ghosts were as cute and adorable as the little ones on Cam’s helmet, then we all have nothing to fear! Make sense? Good.
Dave Gunnarsson has been known for his amazing work with goalie masks around the NHL, and it was no surprise that he crushed it with Talbot’s mask again. Just like last year, Dave added the GLOW Tech FX to make those adorable ghost twins shine bright like a diamond in the dark. From a goalie equipment fan, Cam’s masks have never disappointed and I can’t wait to see what he puts out in the future as an Oiler. For now, we all have this classic to enjoy and stare at for the next calendar year and for that I’m thankful.
What do you think of Dad-bots new mask, yay or nay?
