On March 1st, the Chicago Blackhawks are hosting the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Stadium Series outdoors at Soldier Field, home of the Chicago Bears. Since it is being played in an NFL venue, Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury is wearing an NFL themed helmet for the game, it is painted to resemble the Pittsburgh Steelers’ football helmets.

In Goal Magazine has more images and writes:

Fleury’s long-time artist Stephane Bergeron painted his newest CCM mask as a Steeler’s helmet for the game against the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday March 1st, which is appropriate since it will be held at Soldier Field, the historic home of the NFL’s Chicago Bears.

The new mask features a Penguins logo on the right side, but otherwise looks just like a helmet the Steelers would wear. And with Fleury’s face painted on the bottom of it – right down to his soul patch facial hair under the lower lip – it really should look like he is wearing he is wearing an NFL helmet.
