Official Rules: You must agree to the official contest rules to participate


When it comes to goaltending, Niklas Backstrom is second to none. But when it comes time for him to think of a creative paint job for his goalie mask, he always seems to lag behind his teammate, Josh Harding.

So, Backstrom is asking for help from his young fans for the 2010-2011 season. He wants his mask design to be inspired by Wild fans aged 18 and under. 

Kids (one entry per person) will be asked to download the attached .pdf, create their best mask design, and then submit it (with the help of their parents or legal guardians) in the form at the bottom of this page.

Submissions can also be mailed to:

Minnesota Wild
Backstrom Mask Contest
317 Washington St.
St. Paul, MN 55102


The submissions are due on July 15 and will be narrowed down to five finalists. Those will be sent to Backstrom, who will pick his favorite entry as the Grand Prize winner to be announced on August 2. The Grand Prize winner of the contest will have the opportunity to visit the workshop of goalie mask designer Todd Miska. As he does with Backstrom, Harding and all of his other NHL clients, Miska will sit with the Grand Prize winner and concept the design of the mask. Please note that the mask may not completely resemble the winning submission, but will be inspired by it.

The Grand Prize winner of the contest will be asked to present the finished mask to Backstrom at the Wild's training camp in September. He or she will also receive a replica of the new mask, autographed by Backstrom.

The four other finalists will have their submissions autographed by Backstrom, and sent to them.

All entrants must have their parents or guardians read and agree to the official rules prior to submitting their artwork.
