Nashville Predators Goaltender CHRIS MASON Unveils New IRON MAIDEN-Inspired Mask

According to InGoal Magazine, backup goaltender Chris Mason of the NHL hockey team Nashville Predators is set to debut his new mask, featuring another tribute to British heavy metal legends IRON MAIDEN in the shape of the band's mascot Eddie.

The design in question utilizes Eddie from the Egyptian-themed cover of MAIDEN's "Powerslave" album, which also produced the single "Aces High" and corresponding Eddie included on Mason's 2011 Winnipeg Jets mask. Both covers were originally created originally by artist Derek Riggs, who inspired the mask's artist, Steve Nash of EyeCandyAir.

Nashville Predators signed Mason earlier this summer to a one-year contract worth $1.25 million and $250,000 in potential bonuses for a cap hit of $1.5 million.

The 36-year-old Mason previously spent eight seasons with the Predators — from 1998 to 2002 and 2003 to 2008. Since his most recent departure from Nashville, he played two seasons for St. Louis (2008-2010) and two seasons for Atlanta/Winnipeg (2010-2012).
