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.

Peter Mannino 2011-12 Mask
Peter Mannino of the Winnipeg Jets (born Feb. 17, 1984 in Farmington Hills, MI.)
Mannino was called up when Chris Mason went out with an injury. He played the 3rd period of the November 10, 2011 game against the Florida Panthers (I know, because I was watching. ;o)
But these photos were from warmups on November 5th.
