Stuart Skinner unveils new mask design

All of you fine folks that are into goalie mask designs got some good news this morning as the Edmonton Oilers released pictures of Stuart Skinner’s new mask for the 2022-23 NHL season, and if I do say so myself, it’s a think of beauty.

If you’re of the mind that looking good means feeling good, then Stuart Skinner’s new mask design is already a step in the right direction. Much like Jack Campbell’s mask design that we talked about a little while back, Skinner went with a classic design that features all of the colours and touchpoints any Oilers fan would love and appreciate. We’ve got the classic colour scheme, we’ve got an oil drop on either side of the lid, we’ve got the gears, and we’ve got the ‘Stuey’ nickname front and centre to let everyone know who they’re dealing with. Personally, I think Skinner nailed it. And on a personal level, I can’t help but wonder how excited he is to get this season going and know that he’s going to be a big part of his hometown team going forward. I mean, how cool is that?

As for his thoughts on the Oilers returning to the classic blue and orange unis that we’ve all been clamouring for? Our girl Kylie asked for his thoughts.
