The Flames will have two new netminders in the fold this season, with the off-season acquisition of Brian Elliott and the signing of Chad Johnson.

With the move, both men need new masks and have offered up sneak peeks on social media this month!

Elliott teased his:

Just a little taste of my first #flames mask....can't wait to get into it. @davidofdaveart

Artist Jason Bartziokas designed Johnson's new mask and showed it off on Instagram:

Prospect Jon Gillies is also getting a new mask for the 2016-17 season, which he previewed on his Instagram account. The mask honours his late friend, Brendan Horton, who passed away this year.

Favorite mask yet. Always need my biggest fan with me #brotherhood #BStrong
