Come to the Windy City for some legit minor league hockey, stay for the incredible goalie mask. Chicago Wolves netminder Jordan Binnington showed off his unique mask to In Goal Mag recently.
While the mask is predominantly covered in Wolves pictures and themes, there is one giant face that stands out: The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Asked why Will Smith’s face is on his mask, Binnington gives the world a pretty fantastic answer.
“Outside of the TV show, from what I see he is a self-driven individual who knows what he wants in life,” Binnington wrote InGoal when asked to expand on his mask choice. “I couldn’t name one movie I haven’t enjoyed with him in it. Every movie or show has a purpose. The tv show is so creative, I’m laughing out loud every episode. So to sum it all up I just feel we’d be best friends.”
How could this mask not be the start of a beautiful friendship?
