Howard's new design has a very distinct Detroit feel to it. From the front of the mask where the old English D is on the chin sprouting wings to the back where it proudly proclaims "Hockeytown" -- over an American flag -- next to Howard's all-too predictable hockey nickname of Howie and below the words "Let's roll!"
Then there is the real focal point of the mask, the sides. Each side features the same image; the famous Spirit of Detroit statue, a landmark in Detroit. It appears that it's laid over a silhouette skyline of the city. There's not a whole lot about it that doesn't say Detroit.
The mask was done by Bishop Designs. You can take a look at various stages of the mask's creation on their Facebook page.
