Montreal Canadiens goaltender Jake Allen has been known throughout the course of his career for flashy artwork on his masks, coinciding with his nickname of "Jake the Snake". 

Allen, who has artist extraordinaire Dave Gunnarsson of DaveArt as his mask painter, once again utilized his trademark "snakeskin" design on his new lid for the 2021-22 NHL Season, as well as incorporating a nod to his native Canadian province of New Brunswick.

Take a look at how the artist himself described the artwork: 

"I am very happy to unleash the latest Montreal Canadiens mask for my friend Jake Allen⭐️. Again it is created in an old school style in total 2️⃣-D. I love the crisp and clean look, a design which live and breath the Canadiens colors??⚪️. Yet the design is filled with details and storytelling??⛵️?, the 3 lines on the sides is an homage to Patrick Roy and his classic Habs mask. Thank you Jake for the paint ride! ??? @34jallen@canadiensmtl #DaveArtFamily@nhl#DaveArtTheCradleOfCreativity@bauergoalie"

A member of the Stanley Cup champion St. Louis Blues squad of 2019, Allen is set to begin his second season as backup to Carey Price with the Habs. He posted a record of 11-12-5 during the 2020-21 shortened campaign, along with a 2.68 goals against average and .907 save percentage.
