Carey Price will rock a brand new look for the upcoming season.

Calgary airbrush artist Jordon Bourgeault has created a new mask for Price after the Montreal Canadiens goalie reached out directly through social media.

The mask is designed to look like a biomechanical skull, and pays homage to various great Canadiens goaltenders like Patrick Roy, Jacques Plante, and Ken Dryden.

It has a matte and gloss finish and on the sides of the helmet includes every year of Canadiens Stanley Cup wins.

There are many references to team history all over the helmet including former Habs legend Maurice Richard and the original Canadiens logo, used back in 1910, on the mask’s backplate.

Bourgeault estimates he has spent 250 hours of design, prep and painting time on the first goalie mask he has ever created for an NHL player.

For training camp, Price has been using a basic white mask while waiting for this new mask to be created.

Price will don the mask this season as the Canadiens venture into the year looking for their first Stanley Cup since 1993.
