You do NOT want to tell these guys they have helmet hair

Sports Illustrated has a photo series of goalie mask artwork from the NHL. This pirate-themed one is pretty awesome:

But my favorite is probably this mobster one:

Given that goalie’s name is Niittymaki, I can only assume it’s a play on Nitti, as in Frank Nitti, one of Capone’s top bosses.

  1. The Moose’s mask with the Moose holding a bowie knife and a rifle is pretty sweet.
    Tellqvist has a pretty interesting mask too. Nice tribute to the ‘peg.
    Brodeur’s got the nice old school style mask. Simple, beautiful.

    Never will any be better than Eddie the Eagle’s masks.

  2. Should I tell them they have hockey hair?
