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.

Ilya Bryzgalov 2010-11 Mask
Ilya Bryzgalov of the Phoenix Coyotes (born June 22, 1980 in Togliatti, Russia.)
Both sides have drawings by Bryzgalov's children.
Edit 3/23/11: Bryzgalov has an updated version of his mask with new drawings by his kids. I love that aspect of his mask! Thanks, Canucks Fan, for sending me the link to his new mask.
