Goalie mask designs evolve into artwork

Sunday, 11.02.2014 / 3:00 AM / Sunday Long Read

Kevin Woodley - Correspondent

A black felt pen wielded in protest is the root of the goalie mask design revolution which has changed the literal face of hockey.

Almost 50 years later, goaltending masks have evolved into artistic storytelling of the highest order with colorful, intricate designs a seemingly mandatory part of every goaltender's wardrobe all the way down to the youth level.

Gerry Cheevers had no idea he was starting a movement during a non-descript practice in the late 1960s. He had retreated from the ice after being hit in the mask with a shot. Ordered back on the ice, Cheevers filed his protest first, having a trainer draw the representation of 10 stitches on his white mask where the puck struck him moments earlier.


Gaudreau showing Flames he belongs in NHL

Aaron Vickers - Correspondent

CALGARY -- Johnny Gaudreau is listed as a member of the Calgary Flames, though he can't claim to be a Calgary resident. One month into his NHL career, Gaudreau still is living in a downtown hotel.

He hasn't been told to find a more permanent residence. Yet.

"I hope to hear the news," said Gaudreau, who has one goal and four points 10 games into his first full professional season after a standout career at Boston College. "There's nothing definite yet. Each day I'm fortunate to be here and I'm going to do my best to try to make sure [general manager Brad Treliving] is telling me to get a place. Hopefully I keep proving to them and showing them that I belong here."

His coach said he's doing just that. He'll have another chance to prove himself Sunday against the Montreal Canadiens (7 p.m. ET, CITY)


Oilers forward Hall leaves game with leg injury

EDMONTON — Edmonton Oilers left wing Taylor Hall left the game against the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday after crashing into the net early in the second period. He did not return because of a leg injury.

Hall lost his balance on a rush off the right wing and went into the net, hitting his right leg on the goal post before sliding hard into the boards. He skated off the ice 15 seconds into the second period, went to the dressing room and never returned.

"I have no update on Taylor yet," Oilers coach Dallas Eakins said after the game. "Obviously it's always going to be a huge hole to fill when that young man leaves your lineup."
