Found September 18, 2013 on The Nosebleeds:
St. Louis Blues goaltending prospect Jordan Binnington, who currently plays for the Chicago Wolves of the AHL, is the proud owner of a new goalie mask that features Will Smith’s character from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.  In other words, he’s the proud owner of the BEST. GOALIE. MASK. EVER. Jason Livery of Head Strong Grafx is the man behind the mask, which looks pretty amazing. Here’s Binnington’s explanation for the choice, not that we needed one: “Outside of the TV show, from what I see he is a self-driven individual who knows what he wants in life,” Binnington wrote In Goal Mag 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.” Cue the music!
