Howlin’ Hockey takes a look closer at every single Arizona Coyotes goaltender mask from 1996 to 2015.
Arizona Coyotes goaltending has been a hot topic in the news this season. Midway through the season, the fans learned that Mike Smith would be out 8-10 weeks after having surgery to repair a core muscle injury.
This news propelled Anders Lindback and Louis Domingue to step up their play and battle it out for the starting goaltender position.
With the position always in the spotlight, it only seemed fitting to take a closer look into the creative side of it. National Hockey League goaltenders are able to customize their uniforms in a special way that other players are unable to do.
The goaltender’s mask is a key area that the goaltender is able to personalize and make their own. The mask is used as an artistic canvas for athletes to express their personality and much more.
The graphics and portraits found on these pieces of headgear intrigue all who lay eyes on them. From team logos to cartoon caricatures, fans have seen it all. In respect to the time and effort put in to the designs of these masks, Howlin’ Hockey created an art gallery dedicated to the Arizona Coyotes goaltending history.
Starting in alphabetical order, take a look at all 36 Arizona Coyotes goaltenders and their goaltending masks.
Welcome to the Howlin’ Hockey Art Gallery.
