Iron Maiden's Eddie Returns On Chris Mason’s New Nashville Mask

Nashville Predators backup goalie Chris Mason has unveiled a new Iron Maiden inspired mask for the 2012-2013 NHL season.

Mason's move from the Winnipeg Jets to the Nashville franchise last weekend meant new gear was in order, so the goalie hooked up with Steve Nash of EyeCandyAir.

InGoalMag reports the mask is inspired by the Egyptian-themed cover of the Iron Maiden's 1984 album,"Powerslave."

In fact, the Eddie in question is from the Egyptian-themed cover of the band's Powerslave album, which also produced the single Aces High and corresponding Eddie included on last year's mask. It's a theme that works perfectly because the album covers were created originally by artist Derek Riggs, who has inspired the mask's artist, Steve Nash, throughout his own career.

Mason's name is featured in the Maiden font across the front, which also features three Predators logos. The top of the mask has a full facial shot of Maiden mascot Eddie in all his "Powerslave" glory, while the backplate pays tribute to the city of Nashville.
