A few weeks ago we brought to your some of our favorite goalie masks of the 90's, so this week I decided to bring you some current favorites.
The biggest change it seems, since the 90's, is the fact that although many of the masks are influenced by the team the goalie plays for, masks do tend to be more personalized these days to the actual person. Masks are no longer just protection or even just a piece of art, they are a reflection of the wearer.
Pekka's latest incarnation of "General Maximus" features a little less of the Felix Potvin style artwork we've seen in the past and adds a little steam punk to the mix.
Holtby may be from Canada, but he sure knows how to "Murica". His patriotic nod to the U.S.A. is the perfect fit for the Caps.
If you have ever had the pleasure of walking through Vancouver's Stanley Park, you have seen some of the Totem Poles that grace the region. Ryan Miller's main mask features some Totem art that fits right in Van City.
Roberto has gone (In Gold Member voice) PURE GOOOOOLD with his latest mask. Roberto of course is no stranger to Gold, given his Olympic win while playing in Vancouver. We shall see if he and the Panthers can finally get that Stanley Cup ring to go along with it.
Bishop's electrified mask almost looks like it's glowing out on the ice. The design isn't the most complex, but the way it pops makes it one of the best in the league.
