Mike Smith is using his new Edmonton Oilers mask to celebrate two team legends.
The Oilers goalie unveiled the helmet he'll use for the 2020-21 season, and it honors Hall of Fame goalie Grant Fuhr and longtime locker room attendant Joey Moss.
Smith's mask, which was painted by helmet artist David Arrigo, will pay homage to Fuhr, who led the Oilers to four Stanley Cup titles in the 1980s, by wrapping an image of him around his helmet. An image of Fuhr's actual mask design appears on the front of his helmet, and drawings of Fuhr in his equipment wrap around the helmet. His name plate and No. 31 also appear on top.
Smith also celebrates Moss, the popular former Oilers staffer who died at 57 on Oct. 26, on his helmet's backplate. His name "Joey" appears in the middle with the phrase "Once an Oiler always an Oiler" around it. The names of Smith's four children also appear on the helmet.
Smith donned the helmet for the first time on ice during Edmonton's practice Tuesday. Smith and the Oilers will open their season against the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Place on Wednesday (10 p.m. ET; SN, SN1, TVAS2).
