Game Worn Mask -
Nashville Predators 2011-12 Season
One of the most popular modern designs, Pekka sported this mask during the 2011-12 season with the Nashville Predators. The design was named "Hardcorelicious PredGoalie" by goalie mask artist David Gunnarsson. It features a Predator beast wearing an old-school vintage goalie mask. In the words of Gunnarsson, "The Predator goalie is a real badass goalie, he has lost a tooth, and he also has a tongue piercing…and his brain is showing! He has tried to fix his mask using all possible tricks, staples, needle and wire, and band-aid again of course." Rinne had a monster 2011-12 season and finished as one of the finalists for the Vezina trophy. The mask exhibits very nice use and the chips and marks have been matched to numerous game photos.
