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.

Richard Bachman 2011-12 Mask
Richard Bachman of the Dallas Stars (born July 25, 1987 in Salt Lake City, UT.)
Bachman is beginning the season in the AHL, but this photo was from preseason. I believe this is the same mask as last season (found here.)
