I'm not a fan of posting photos of myself, but I realized some of you that follow me here might not know what I look like, and you might like to put a face with "Joezayfan." So here I am, a 40-yr-old librarian who loves hockey, goalies, and t-shirts ;o). And I'd appreciate it if you'd keep the mean comments to yourself. Haha.

Cory Schneider 2012-13 Mask

Cory Schneider of the Vancouver Canucks (born March 18, 1986 in Marblehead, MA.)

If you're looking for his Retro Millionaire's Mask, it's found here.

Artist: David Gunnarsson

"The colours: Canucks green and blue are dominant, while a sharp chrome cage gives the mask a sleek feel. On the left and right sides the Canucks orca is present, albeit with bubbles above his head as part of an underwater theme, while the chin has CANUCKS written several times. Look closer through each of the aforementioned areas and native orcas are found in the background. Nice touch.The top of the mask features a large Johnny Canuck team logo with BAUER written underneath, just above the chrome masking.More bubbles on the back right side, NONE SHALL PASS in the middle and RYP, a tribute to Schneider’s fallen teammate Rick Rypien on the left."

Henrik Lundqvist - 2012 Vezina Award Winner

I realized I didn't post photos of Hank after he won the Vezina at the 2012 NHL Awards.

His lovely wife, Therese, wasn't able to attend the Awards show due to her advanced pregnancy, so here is a photo of the two of them at an event on June 12, 2012.
Such a beautiful couple, and I look forward to the happy news when their little girl is born.

Free Agency Begins Today at Noon EST

I will be watching all the free agency news today, and I'll update tonight with any goalie news.
