The scariest goalie mask in the AHL features clown from 'It'

Stephen King's horror classic gets homage on helmet of Flyers prospect @NHLdotcom

It's the scariest hockey mask since the one worn by Jason Vorhees.

Philadelphia Flyers prospect Alex Lyon, currently of the Lehigh Valley Phantoms of the AHL, will no doubt frighten opponents after having Pennywise the clown from the horror classic "It" painted on his new helmet.

The mask was designed by veteran artist David Gunnarsson of "Dave Art" who has done countless masks around the NHL. He shared this scary one on Instagram.

The mask also features a cracked and distored Flyers logo on the top that just looks creepy.

There was one change made with some poetic license. Instead of the red balloons from "It" Gundersson changed them to orange balloons, the Flyers primary color.

It's definitely a mask to give anyone nightmares, just as Lyon hopes to do to potential goal scorers.
