Street Hockey goalie mask

aaaMystrySolvd-1054There are masks that have nothing to do with ritual, ceremony or celebration. One of these categories is protection, and these often scary masks can be great fun to collect. Here we have a old street hockey goalie’s mask. It is made of white, Mylec plastic and has padding, straps and buckles on the rear. Made in Canada, it is the same model worn in the opening scene of the 1996 film Heat. Masks are worn because a speeding puck or out-of-control stick could do serious damage to the face.

But there is a secondary reason for the way protective masks are designed. Their appearance can be very intimidating to the opposition.  1054
