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.

Jonas Gustavsson 2011-12 Mask
Jonas Gustavsson of the Toronto Maple Leafs (born Oct. 24, 1984 in Danderyd, Sweden.)
From the artist: "I have painted for the Toronto Maple Leafs goalie Jonas Gustavsson since he was a kid. It is an honor for me to follow a goalie through his career and evolve the mask designs from year to year."
