Behind THE MASK
STEVE MASON | WINNIPEG JETS
IF YOU’RE THINKING, “The pilots on Mason’s mask don’t really look like pilots,” you’re not wrong. The faces belong to members of the Jets’ training and equipment staff. Mason endured a tough season, limited to 13 regular season games because of injury, so he and artist Sylvie Marsolais decided to honor those who helped get him back on his skates. The name ‘Emma’ on the backplate belongs to Mason’s daughter.
