Pittsburgh Penguins Goalie Casey DeSmith Adds Disc Golf To Mask Art

Ever seen a penguin throw a disc?

Hockey goalies are known for their extremely customized masks, and Pittsburgh Penguins goalieĀ Casey DeSmith has added his other athletic pursuit to his helmet for the 2018-2019 season.

DeSmith has only been playing disc golf for about three years, but he’s already become a big ambassador for the sport. He’s sponsored by Dynamic Discs, has a PDGA number reflecting his newfound hobby (#101294), and recently played his first tournament at the Pittsburgh Flying Disc Open, where he finished tied for 35th out of 46 competitors in the Open field.

DeSmith’s Penguins mask features a mascot on one side throwing discs into a basket on the other. The Dynamic Discs’ “DD” is visible on the back plate as well.

They also followed a practice round before the tournament with DeSmith, Grady Shue, and soon-to-be-crowned World Champion Paige Bjerkaas. Bjerkaas would win the PFDO FPO title later that week.
