Anton Khudobin 2010-11 Mask

Anton Khudobin of the Minnesota Wild (born May 7, 1986 in Ust-kamenogorsk, Kazakhstan.)

Edit: Khudobin was traded by the Wild to the Boston Bruins in February 2011. He's been playing for their AHL team in Providence. I have no information about or photos of his mask, so I can only assume he still has the same one.


Khudobin played in 4 games in January for Minnesota following injuries to both Backstrom and Theodore.

He said in the past he has angels on his mask because "Angels kind of help people. When I was trying to think of what to do, I didn’t know what team I would be on so I can’t put a special logo like Minnesota Wild or Houston Aeros.”

I don't have great photos yet, but here's what I've found.

And Khudobin got his first career NHL shutout tonight against Vancouver.

Kevin Poulin 2010-11 Mask

Kevin Poulin of the New York Islanders (born April 12, 1990 in Montreal, QC.)

Poulin has played in one game so far for the Islanders (on Jan. 6, 2011.)

Here's what the Goalie Guild had to say about his mask:
"The right side features gorgeous paintings of Mike Bossy and Billy Smith with their respective numbers glowing Isles’ orange. The left side has an oversized Islanders’ logo, with the rest of the mask artfully accented with orange, blue, and white stripes, and New York’s secondary “NY” hockey stick logo."

Nathan Lawson 2010-11 Mask

Nathan Lawson of the New York Islanders (born Sept. 29, 1983 in Calgary, AB.)

Lawson has played in 3 games so far for the Islanders, the first being on Dec. 18, 2010.

Here's what the Goalie Guild had to say about Lawson's mask:

"In a dark blue hue, the left side features a tractor in front of a barn in the woods during a winter storm. The right side features his dog below a cruising yacht representing New York summers. Both sides features trimmed Isles’ logos on the bottom, while the chin features the words “Nate the Great” in a crayon-scratched font. A solid orange and white-trimmed line bisects the mask down the middle of the crown."
