Fan makes incredible CFL-inspired hockey helmet collection

If you’re a big fan of hockey and the CFL, boy do we have a treat for you.

Twitter user @SilverStampeder made a collection of incredible hockey goalie helmets inspired by each CFL team and posted them in a Twitter thread late Wednesday evening.

We’ll go from west to east to celebrate these awesome artistic creations.

B.C.’s helmet features a front-view of the team’s traditional logo with the lion’s mouth encircling the goalie’s face. If that doesn’t intimidate the opposition, we don’t know what would.

Calgary’s helmet features the traditional white horse at the top of the helmet and a dark, red-eyed stallion on the side. The Flames wear red — if the Stampeders win the Grey Cup, is there a chance we could get Jacob Markström to wear this?

Edmonton’s helmet takes a nod from the team’s existing antlered helmets with the incorporation of the traditional EE on the side and the team’s new primary logo on the chin. This is a really solid mixture of old and new representing the Green and Gold.

You can’t go wrong with watermelons in Saskatchewan and this helmet reflects that in spades. The primary logo is situated along the forehead with the melon’s bright interior spilling out onto the chin.

Winnipeg’s helmet takes a nod from the team’s existing lids with the gold colour emblazoned with the traditional W logo. We love the nods to the airforce on the side of the helmet along with the ‘Bombs Away’ slogan along the bottom.

Hamilton’s helmet boldly displays the team’s primary colours with the main logo smack-dab in the middle of the forehead. The claws on the side of the helmet are super slick and are sure to intimidate the opposition.

Toronto’s helmets are awesome, tying together the team’s primary logo with the city skyline along the top of the mask. The CN Tower is placed perfectly in the centre of the helmet stripe, which is extremely satisfying.

Plaid!? A beard!? This thing is awesome. Ottawa’s helmet pays tribute to the city’s lumberjack roots and we think the Senators should absolutely have Matt Murray wear this in a game — it might be the best thing to happen to the team all year.

Montreal’s helmet takes a nod from the Alouettes’ existing lids, overlaying the red logo broadly over the navy helmet. It’s simple, effective, and stunning. Is there any chance we could get one of these made for Carey Price?

Silver Stampeder even made a helmet for the Atlantic Schooners, which is pretty awesome. We love the large primary logo along with the provincial flags along the chin. We need this team to happen!

Great work, Silver Stampeder! Make sure to give them a follow on Twitter.
