Canadiens’ Scrivens pays tribute to Motörhead with new mask

Ben Scrivens sat down with Scott Oake to talk about his road to and in the NHL so far and how for Scrivens, who never grew up dreaming NHL dreams, every day is a special accomplishment for him.

Montreal Canadiens goaltender Ben Scrivens unveiled his new mask Tuesday and it’s sure to win the approval of a few music fans.

Scrivens’ latest goalie mask features a tribute to late Motörhead bassist and vocalist Lemmy Kilmister. The Motorhead founder’s image is surrounded by a spade, which is a nod to the band’s iconic 1980 album and single, “Ace of Spades.”


The 29-year-old goaltender also included Canadian hardcore band Alexisonfire’s “heart-skull” logo on the mask, which he had painted on a mask when he was with the Edmonton Oilers as well.

Scrivens, who was acquired in a trade with the Oilers in exchange for Zack Kassian, is 0-2 with a 3.64 goals-against average and a .885 save percentage in two games this season.
