New Jersey Devils goaltender Cory Schneider is one step closer to rocking his new mask.
The Devils announced their mask-designing contest last month with an open call for submissions. In addition to having his or her mask design worn by Schneider during the 2015-16 season, the winner will also get four tickets to a Devils’ home game, a signed stick, and a chance to meet and take a photo with Schneider.
“The passion and creativity of our fans inspired me to welcome ideas for next season’s mask,” Schneider said on the contest’s website.
Schneider, along with well-known goalie mask artist David Gunnarsson, who will be painting the winning mask, hand-picked the five finalists, which were announced via Twitter on Monday.
