DiPietro spent the previous three seasons with the Windsor Spitfires in the OHL where he posted a 2.55 goals against average and posted 75 wins and 15 shutouts in 136 games. Looking to take the next step in his professional hockey career this upcoming season, the Windsor, Ontario native decided it was time for a brand new look.
The 2017 Memorial Cup winner turned to famous goalie mask artist David Gunnarsson, also known as daveart, for something special for his first NHL mask. While he wasn’t exactly sure what he wanted when he first approached Gunnarsson, he knew that he did want to have some sort of Humboldt Broncos tribute, which is featured on the right side of his mask.
The left side of his mask includes a shoutout to Riverdale’s ‘Pop’s Chock’lit Shoppe’, which is filmed at Rocko’s Family Diner in BC, and also includes the Amherstburg shield.
