Howard has a re-designed helmet logo, featuring Doctor Octopus, a.k.a. "Doc Ock," the appropriately tentacled villain from Spider-Man:

As for the nifty new design on the mask, Howard replaced the purple octopus and clock, the hands of which pointed to the numbers the Red Wings have retired, with the image of Marvel Comics supervillain Doctor Octopus, aka "Doc Ock." Known also by his official name, Dr. Otto Gunther Octavius, Doctor Octopus wears mechanical octopus arms with industrial-strength pincers that intimidate opponents in the same way Howard hopes to intimidate shooters with his squared-up style of goaltending.

It's not like Howard needed anything like this to spice up his game. Howard won 37 games last year as a rookie and was a finalist for the Calder Trophy as the NHL's top rookie.

"I'm excited to get the season going, here," Howard said. "We're going to have just a terrific team and I'm just ready to get going, again. I feel good. It was a long summer, so you got to take a little more of a break and just let your body heal up, and rest and really not think about things."

Now can someone talk to Chris Osgood about his helmet?
