COLUMBUS, OHIO – As the Columbus Blue Jackets prepare to celebrate fans in commemoration of their 10th National Hockey League season, the club announced June 24 an exclusive opportunity giving season ticket holders the chance to design the masks that will be worn by club goaltenders Steve Mason and Mathieu Garon during the 2010-11 campaign. Ticket holders with full-season, 20-game or 10-game packages, as well as their spouses and children, are invited to submit mask renderings that they think best illustrates the spirit of Blue Jackets hockey.
Upon receiving all entries, Steve Mason and Mathieu Garon will each select one winning design that will adorn his mask for the 2010-11 season. Both winning selections will then be turned over to each goalie's personal mask designer to be professionally produced as the closest possible replication of the fan's design. At the end of the 2010-11 season, Mason and Garon will autograph the game-worn masks and personally present them to their respective fan designers.
Complete contest details, including a printable mask design template, and rules can be found on the Season Ticket Holder page of the team's official website, www.BlueJackets.com. All entries must be received by Friday, July 16.
