Will Smith’s character on the show “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” often made an impression everywhere he went.
Chicago Wolves goaltender Jordan Binnington hopes to do the same.
Binnington, a prospect in the St. Louis Blues organization, uses a mask that has an image of Smith when he appeared the popular 1990’s television show.

Binnington explained to InGoalMag why he chose Smith’s image.
“Outside of the TV show, from what I see he is a self-driven individual who knows what he wants in life,” Binnington said. “I couldn’t name one movie I haven’t enjoyed with him in it. Every movie or show has a purpose.”
Binnington was drafted by the Blues in 2011. Last season, he was named the Ontario Hockey League’s top goaltender.
The Wolves’ first game of the 2013-2014 season is against the San Antonio Rampage on Oct. 4.
