Washington Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby returned to Kettler yesterday to begin training for next season. Not only did the Lloydminster native bring back with him a new mask, he also brought back a fat new contract, which will keep him a Capital until the summer of 2020.
But with all those greenbacks also comes pressure, which the zen master Holtbeast says he has a special way of dealing with.
Via the Washington Capitals Instagram, here’s Braden Holtby‘s new mask.
Designed by Swedish artist-to-the-stars, Dave Gunnarsson, Holtby’s mask features a sign on its side reading, “Please do not feed the animal.”
Not sure if that refers to the eagle with the crazy eyes or the actual guy wearing the mask.
