A Goalie Mask Gallery
Puck Daddy has alerted us to the 50th Anniversary of the Goalie Mask, so we figured we would re-run this article highlighting some of the art from around the league:
In pro team sports, players are given a uniform and little discretion on what else they can wear. The NFL is notorious for harshly enforcing its stringent dress code. If you wear the wrong color shoes or if your uniform becomes untucked for too long, be prepared to be fined on Monday morning. There’s simply little room for style in the apparel.
One major exception is hockey, where goaltenders can design their own masks. One can choose a cool design, a favorite character, or simply an homage to the home team’s city and place it on your mask. Below for your perusal is a gallery of what most of the current NHL goaltenders are sporting these days.
