Boston Bruins Goalie's Iconic Mask Made by Woburn Artist

Interesting article/video about Tuukka's mask and equipment choices here.

Quote:
There are few images in sports as intimidating as a professional hockey goalie.

They have the big pads, the stick and are, it is well acknowledged, overall tough guys. What could make a goalie look even more intimidating to would-be goal scorers?

How about a brightly painted mask featuring a bear with big claws and a gaping maw full of sharp teeth?

That is the image Bruin's goalie Tuukka Rask has been wearing since 2007, while he was still with the Boston Bruin's development team The Providence Bruins. That mask, which has a new iteration this season, was originally designed by Ron Slater, owner of Slater Lettering and Graphics in Woburn.
