Juuse Saros' new mask will celebrate two famous Finns, including his current teammate.
Saros' mask for the 2020 NHL Winter Classic features images of Pekka Rinne and Kimmo Timonen as well as Nashville's logo for the game against the Dallas Stars at the Cotton Bowl on Wednesday (2 p.m. ET, NBC, TVAS, SN).
Saros' mask, unveiled by David Gunnarsson of Dave Art on Monday, features the image of a tuxedo-clad Rinne accepting the Vezina Trophy in 2018 and his name and No. 35. Timonen, who played for Nashville for eight seasons from 1998-07, is on the opposite side in a Predators jersey with his last name and No. 44 visible.
Rinne was excited when he saw Saros' mask, as Episode 2 of Road to the NHL Winter Classic chronicled.
Rinne's mask was also unveiled Monday, and it's pretty sweet.
