Ilya Bryzgalov's 2012 Winter Classic Mask

Here is the article about Ilya Bryzgalov's Winter Classic Mask at InGoal Magazine.

Bryzgalov's other masks are here.

"The mask is a tribute to Philadelphia sports in general, the Spectrum and Veterans Stadium. Citizens Bank Park, the venue for this year’s Winter Classic, was built to replace Veterans stadium, and of course the Spectrum, which also was home to the Sixers, was built when the Flyers came into the NHL. The players featured are Reggie White (Eagles) Julius Erving (Sixers), Mike Schmidt (Phillies), and Bobby Clarke (Flyers) along with the Philly Phanatic. The HK patch is for the late, great Harry Kallus. The saying “Good night and Good Hockey” was a famous phrase used by the great Gene Hart before he passed away."

And here are the pads he had made for the Winter Classic. He didn't play in the game, so he's wearing them now (January), along with the mask.
