For Whom The Goal Tender Tolls…

Via Metal Hammer, the inspiring sight of Winnipeg Jets goal tender Chris Mason’s bad-ass, Iron Maiden-inspired helmet.

Pretty sweet. Not only do you get to face down certain death at the hands of burly men skating towards you with the sole intent of sticking a puck through your noggin but you get to do so whilst looking like you’re Eddie the ‘Ed’s wingman. A whole six-pack of awesome sauce to you, sir!
