Dwayne Roloson 2010-11 Mask

Dwayne Roloson of the Tampa Bay Lightning (born Oct. 12, 1969 in Simcoe, ON.)

Edit (Jan 7, 2011): Roloson was traded to Tampa Bay in early January.
First are some photos of Roloson's Lightning mask. Thanks to InGoal Magazine.
From the artist, Jesse Acciacca:
"The new paint job is inspired by Thor the god of Thunder and Lightning. I tried to get away from most of the paint styles used on other goalies that have played for Tampa. All Blue with lightning and some characters. It is a Full Thor Helmet with his Hammer striking down on backplate. Roli’s name on chin as we have always done."

Below are the masks he used while playing for the Islanders. This side is a tribute to Billy Smith who played in the NHL from 1970-1989, and was the first NHL goalie to be credited with scoring a goal (in 1979.)

On this side is Chico Resch who played in the NHL from 1971-1987, winning the Stanley Cup in 1980.

Here's the other mask. I can see a lighthouse and water...

Here's the story of why he has the shamrock on the backplate.
