Something that didn’t dawn on me until the Sunday game was that Pekka Rinne didn’t just return to the ice – he returned to it in style with a new lid.
I’ve always been a fan of Rinne’s masks and that faux-mask on mask look. Previous designs by the great David Gunnarsson for him include the following: The Facehugger, The Voodoo PredGoalie aka NeedleHead, The Predator Goalie, PredGrin, Hardcorelicious PredGoalie, HonkyTonk Mask, PredGoalie (my personal favorite), RipperDripper, ClawRage, and Lenny Lion The Country Star.
What do you think of Pekka’s new mask? What are some of your favorite masks in goaltending right now? If you could have a goalie mask made – what do you put on it?
