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.

Dustin Tokarski 2013-14 Mask
Duston Tokarski of the Montreal Canadiens (born Sept 16, 1989 in Humboldt, SK.)
Tokarski started 3 games in March 2014 (one of those being a shutout against Buffalo.)
Tokarski's nickname is Tic, so he goes with The Tick on his masks.
The parameters for the mask were simple: maintain The Tick imagery and use a simple clean design. The overall theme is retro, the minimal use of colour gives it a throwback feel to the earliest styles of goalie masks.
For imagery, on one side are the various logos that have been worn by the historic Montreal Canadiens franchise. On the other side, is the funniest superhero ever, The Tick. For this graphic The Tick is breaking through the helmet ready with his Habs power ring, ready to “Goalkeep safely!”
