Scott Darling 2014-15 Mask

Scott Darling of the Chicago Blackhawks (born December 22, 1988 in Lemont, IL.)

Darling is the 3rd goalie used by Chicago due to an injury to Crawford in October.

This mask is the one he debuted for the playoffs.

Darling is a Chicago-area native, so he wanted a mask to represent the city:
The right side of the Warwick mask includes the Millennium Park “Bean,” the Willis Tower (which Livery notes is still knows as the Sears Tower to everyone from the city), the W. Madison Street sign, a Portillo’s Hot Dog, and of course the Blues Brothers from the movie of the same name.
“I also added one of the lion statues from the Field Museum and we had to include the famous EL Train,” Livery said. “And down the middle are the stars of the Chicago Flag.”
The left side of the mask is dominated by the Blackhawks iconic logo, but also includes the Ferris Wheel at Navy Pier and, of course, the Madhouse on Madison and a reference to another Chicago-based movie, “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.”

But he seemed to wear this one the majority of the time.

It seems he had 4 different sets of pads but I'm not going to post them all. These were the last he wore.

Here was one other set of pads.

This was the gear he started the season with.
