St. Louis Blues goaltender Brian Elliott usually sets the bar pretty high with his mask art. The unique way he has featured Casey Jones from the Ninja Turtles on his hard hat in the past is certainly nothing short of awesome. But fellow goalie in the Blues organization Jordan Binnington might have just stolen the show with his latest graphic selection. Photo Courtesy: Head Strong Grafx Yes that is Will Smith on the side of Binnington's mask as the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and yes it is that cool. But when you see it, you might start humming the words "In west Philadelphia born and raised..." and immediately wonder why the netminder -- raised in Canada and currently playing with the Blues' minor league affiliate Chicago Wolves -- landed on Carlton Banks' cousin for his mask art. His answer to InGoal Mag would make Uncle Phil proud: "Outside of the TV show, from what I see he is a self-driven individual who knows what he wants in life," Binnington said to InGoal when asked to explain 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." Who wouldn't want to be best friend with Will Smith? There is really nothing else that needs to be said. This mask will be tough to beat in terms of street credibility and the folks over at Head Strong Grafx have truly outdone themselves with this one.
