Vancouver Canucks’ Skull goalie mask! (cc @vancanucks)


Each week we sift through the nearly 8,000 entries that our friends at the Canadian Design Resource have made since 2005, selecting one particularly awesome Vancouver-centric design that they’ve featured and sharing it with you here.

This “impressive and scary Skull mask was donned by Gary Bromley, an Edmonton native who made a great first impression with the Sabres in ’74-75. Bromley wound up his big league career with three years in Vancouver, suiting up for the Canucks from ’78 to ’81. The skeleton theme extended around to the back, where “letters made out of small bones spell out Bromley’s “Bones” nickname on the back plate”.
