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.

Jean-Sebastien Giguere 2013-14 Mask
Jean-Sebastien Giguere of the Colorado Avalanche (born May 16, 1977 in Montreal, QC.) Giguere is wearing the same mask as last season (see info here.) His new mask to wear with their 3rd jerseys is further down.
Jean Sebastien Giguere will channel his inner Yeti whenever the Colorado Avalanche wear their third jerseys this season.
“I am the Yeti,” Giguere said. “It’s a new design, a new look, and a new painter to go with our third jerseys, so I will wear it in practice and with the third jersey. It’s a good look, very simple and I like it. It was my wife’s idea.”
Unfortunately Giguere forgot to include his wife, Kristen, on a backplate that features his own nickname below the initials of his three sons, Maxime-Olivier, Luka-Claude and Felix Jack Austin, who was born in the summer of 2013.
“Yeah, I probably should have put my wife on there,” Giguere said with a laugh.
