Steve Shields had a modern mask but with the Slasher mask motive on it a couple of years ago
I remember that mask, it was awesome! Now there's a guy in Sweden using a similar mask, Mikael Sandberg of Frölunda wears one called "Tribute to Pelle" and it can be seen in the Mask Gallery on this site below (it's in Flash format so I can't link directly to the pictures), it's a modern mask painted to resemble Pelle Lindbergh's mask, very cool design.
A truly strange looking mask was the Louch mask from the 1950's worn by Johnny Bower in practise and Jacques Plante also tried it out in practise. If you did not make it as a goalie, welding would make a good alternative career. http://www.legendsofhockey.net/htmlg...masks007.htm#x
My favorite exhibit at the HHOF is the mask display. Several of the famous old masks are there incl.(if memory serves) Gerry Cheevers 'stitches' mask, Ken Dryden's first NHL mask, the Clint Benedict mask and my favorite Gilles Gratton's roaring mask.
