Greiss honors military on mask

The German goalie pays tribute to US military at Fort Bragg, where he teaches hockey clinics

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

A German-born goalie may seem like an unexpected source of US patriotism, but Thomas Greiss is paying tribute to the US military with his new helmet. 

Greiss' new mask is an ode to the forces at Fort Bragg, the country's largest military base in North Carolina. It features paratroopers falling from the top his mask, while silhouettes of infantry walk below. To personalize it for Fort Bragg, he added the shields for the Special Forces and Delta Force, as well as the statue of Iron Mike, a World War II paratrooper.
