Sports Illustrated - Oilers' Ben Scrivens to wear series of masks for mental health awareness


#1

Ben Scrivens and the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation are partnering with the Schizophrenia Society of Alberta to help raise awareness for mental illness as part of Scrivens’ new program, Ben’s Netminders. The goalie will wear four masks designed by artists with schizophrenia over the course of the season, starting with Monday’s game against the Lightning.

Scrivens’ first mask was submitted by Richard Boulet, who graduated from the University of Alberta with a masters in fine art and lives with the illness.
