The position of goalie has an inherent romanticism: masked men clad with cool armor, serving as the last line of defense. They play entire games, with an unparalleled ability to impact outcomes. When they're on, they can single-handedly defeat a giant foe. They are the consummate underdogs and towering superheroes all at once.

Alex Auld 2010-11 Mask
Alex Auld of the Montreal Canadiens (born Jan. 7, 1981 in Cold Lake, AB.)
He is paying respect to the 3 Montreal goalies that have had their numbers retired (Plante, Dryden and Roy.)
Auld got a new mask in Feb. 2011. Here's the link to that entry.
