VEGAS (August 1, 2017) - The Vegas Golden Knights announced today, August 1, the launch of #PicksMaskContest, a social media contest in which fans can help goaltender Calvin Pickard design his new Golden Knights goalie mask. Pickard will select elements from his favorite fan entries to be painted on his mask for the 2017-18 season.
"Golden Knights fans have already proven to be a passionate fan base heading into the team's inaugural season, so I knew this was a perfect opportunity to include them in designing my new mask," said Vegas Golden Knights goaltender Calvin Pickard. "I can't wait to see the creative designs they come up with."
Throughout the week, Pickard will participate in a variety of social media activities with Golden Knights fans, including twitter Q and A's and video messaging.
To officially enter, fans can register on vegasgoldenknights.com and upload a photo of their creative artwork to the #PicksMaskContest landing page. The team will highlight Calvin's favorite entries on the club's official Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat accounts.
The contest opens August 1 and will run through 12 p.m. PT Friday, August 4. Only individuals residing in the Las Vegas area will be eligible to win. The winner(s) will be selected on Wednesday, August 9.
Pickard will select five finalists from the submissions and those finalists will receive an invitation to a group meet-and-greet at a Golden Knights practice at City National Arena where the selected entrants will receive a signed puck and have the opportunity to pose for a photo with Calvin and the mask. One of the selected entrants will be awarded the Grand Prize, which will be a Golden Knights jersey and a meet and greet/photo op at a Golden Knights practice at City National Arena with Calvin and the mask.
Vegas Golden Knights goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury will also be participating in a fan initiative involving his mask later in the season. Details will be announced at a later date.
