Rinne to Wear Fan Designed Mask Sunday vs. Washington

Nashville, Tenn. – During the month of January, Nashville Predators fans had the opportunity to participate in the Design the Mask contest presented by AT&T. Fans submitted designs for a new Pekka Rinne mask through the internet, the Design My app or in person at an AT&T store.

The three finalists, chosen from more than 150 entries, were selected by Rinne and put online to have the winner picked by fan vote. Fans chose Middle Tennessee State University student Scott Sulfridge’s design that incorporates Preds gold, a guitar and the Nashville skyline, as the winner.

After being selected, Sulfridge’s design was sent to the NHL for approval and then on to Sweden for Dave Gunnarsson of DAVEART to paint. Gunnarsson, who has been painting goalie masks for more than 20 years, creates all of Rinne’s masks.

On Sunday, March 30, Sulfridge will get to see his design in game action as Rinne sports the mask for the Preds game against the Washington Capitals. Sulfridge will attend the Preds morning skate to meet Pekka and get a first look at his design. Following the game, Sulfridge will get to keep the game worn mask.

WHO:       Pekka Rinne wears new mask designed by Preds fan Scott Sulfridge through the Design a Mask contest                    presented by AT&T.

WHEN:     Nashville Predators vs. Washington Capitals
                 Sunday, March 30 at 7 p.m. CT (FOX Sports Tennessee, 102.5 The Game)

WHERE:  Bridgestone Arena (501 Broadway, Nashville, TN 37203)

The Predators will welcome new Vanderbilt Football Coach Derek Mason and his staff to Smashville for Sunday’s game. Mason and select staff members will be signing autographs outside of the Preds Pro Shop during the first intermission and special prices are available for Commodores fans interested in attending.
