With 6 games left in season, Marty Turco debuts new Boston Bruins goalie mask

Published on March 30, 2012 by   ·   No Comments

Prior to Thursday’s 3-2 shootout loss to the Washington Capitals, the Boston Bruins’ backup goaltender Marty Turco revealed a new look with a new custom helmet.

Painted by Dave Gunnarsson, Turco had another Gargoyle-themed shell done up.

A look at Marty Turco's new helmet, featuring his signature Gargoyle.

InGoal Magazine revealed the new look, here’s the piece from today.

What’s really fascinating about the decision to get a new helmet done with just days left in the regular season is that, well, the shelf life is just 10 more days until it is potentially retired to his collection with his Dallas Stars and Chicago Blackhawks masks.

That is, if Turco isn’t offered a contract with the Bruins in the summer. With rumors that Tim Thomas may part ways with the Bruins, anything is possible.

And Turco would love to stay in the NHL for a year longer, even at a discount.

For Turco, however, getting another mask done was just to add to the collection, if anything:

“That’s just more for my collection than anything, but it should be here any day. Whether I get a game in and play with it or not, I don’t know. But it’s a feather in my cap to be a Boston Bruin even for just a little bit. It’s a pretty special deal and I don’t take those things lightly.”

And, just for a reminder, because Turco was picked up past the trade deadline, he’s ineligible to participate in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Turco is 1-1-0 in three appearances for the Bruins.
