The New York Rangers goalie got his newborn, Evelyn, a pair of mini pads.

Brian's Custom Sports from Kingsville, Ontario, made the pads for Raanta. Goalie-pad designer Reo Roy takes about half a day to make the 10-inch high pads, but can only make a few per month, so they are generally reserved for pro goaltenders and other special clients.
