Rick Heinz Goalie Mask

Rick Heinz Goalie Mask

Take home the goalie mask that sustained Rick Heinz through six brutal seasons in the NHL -- if you're tough enough. "The puck would not cut you but the mask would from the force," says Heinz, who provides an affidavit of authenticity. The white-painted fiberglass is battered, the straps supporting the back head plate are frayed and stained with blood, and the cushion tape on the inside has toned from age Heinz, who played with Vancouver and St. Louis in the 1980s, had an attack of claustrophobia when the manufacturer molded the gear around his head, sticking straws in his nose so he could breathe. Although he confesses to forgetting many of the shots he stopped with face, Heinz remembers the mask’s final day. He took a puck to the eye from Vancouver teammate Lars Lindgren during a morning skate and received 24 stitches. He played that night and stopped 21 shots before putting the mask into retirement.
