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.

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.
"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."
