Eddie will return for the 2011-12 season on a new mask worn by Chris Mason of the Winnipeg Jets. "We went back and forth, lots of phone calls, and I sent [designer] Steve [Nash, of Eyecandyair] some sketches and he did some art and we mulled over a bunch of different ideas," Mason told InGoal Magazine. "Then he came up with the Iron Maiden Eddie (the band's mascot) in the old fighter jet and I thought it was perfect. I loved the image and thought that was really appropriate for the Jets."
