If you thought Jaroslav Halak’s plain white goalie mask was creepy, you’re in luck!

Halak received his new mask today from Diel Airbrush and will ditch the white one for this beautiful Caps mask:

The new mask features the Capitals’ eagle logo prominently on the front with a bald eagle on either side, an image of the U.S. Capitol on the chin and the Slovakian flag on the back. Other angles of the mask can been seen on Diel's website.

Diel also made Halak’s Olympic mask for team Slovakia.

Halak was acquired by the Caps in a trade with Buffalo on March 5. Since that time, he has been wearing a plain white mask rather than the one he wore in St. Louis.

The new mask will make its debut tonight as the Caps meet Los Angeles at 10:30 pm ET. Halak is expected to start for the Caps and now is expected to look pretty sharp too.
