Oilers goalie's new mask honours Joey Moss, Grant Fuhr
EDMONTON -- Goalie Mike Smith will wear a new mask this season that honours two Oilers legends.
The new mask, painted by artist David Arrigo, is a tribute to the late Joey Moss and former Oilers goalie Grant Fuhr.
Arrigo has been sharing previews of the mask online.
"We wanted to do something really unique," Arrigo told CTV News Edmonton. "It's a very special piece, for sure."
He said he devoted 35 to 40 hours of work to the project.
The Oilers start the 2021 season with a game against the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Place on Wednesday.
