Eric Comrie scored some major points with New Jersey Devils fans thanks to his new mask.
The goalie sported his new helmet which features images of Devils greats Martin Brodeur, Scott Stevens, Glenn “Chico” Resch and Ken Daneyko for New Jersey’s game against the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday.
The top of Comrie’s mask has an oversized Devils logo with Daneyko and Resch on his right side, and Hall of Fame inductees Scott Stevens and Martin Brodeur on the left.
Comrie started the season with the Winnipeg Jets and was claimed off waivers by the Devils on Jan. 12. He had to wait until Sunday to make his Devils debut, where he showed off his new helmet in a game for the first time.
Resch, a longtime Devils TV and radio analyst who also played goal for four seasons in New Jersey from 1982-86, first caught a glimpse of his likeness on the helmet last week. He was amazed when he saw his image on the mask, which was painted by Skin FX Wraps.
Daneyko, who calls Devils games on MSG-Plus, also seemed impressed by the work upon seeing it Sunday.
“Much respect for the history of this great organization,” Daneyko said of Comrie during the second period of New Jersey’s game in Buffalo. “Those are pretty accurate pictures on that mask, aren’t they?”
The mask apparently brought Comrie some good luck too. The 25-year-old won his first game since March 20, 2018, stopping 30 shots in New Jersey’s 5-3 win.
